Tour Ireland’s sacred sites and magical lands with myself and our hospitable driver and enjoy lively conversations with like-minded people.  So on the Irish tour we will will focus on monuments and places that link effortlessly into the fairy realms. Past cultures appreciated and utilised many of these sites for their earth energies. We will visit mystical places in the Burren, Galway Bay, and Yeats Country in both Galway and Sligo. Explore ancient cairns and fairy glens, holy wells and fairy forts, legendary caves, symbolic carvings and more. We end with the monuments of the Boyne Valley that are a culmination of Neolithic culture across the country; a fruition in consciousness.

En route we can have fun divining ley lines, and I will introduce some sound and meditation techniques that help us become more fully present and aware of the deep peace of these places. I have been to all the sacred sites many times. They work together well as a whole experience. Come away refreshed and enlivened! More details to follow of prices. Rest assured they will be reasonable compared to other sacred site tours of Ireland. Places limited to a small group so book early! Register your interest here. I look forward to meeting you!

Whilst Ireland is a place set aside for the deep elemental beings and the high Sidhe (pronounced “shee”), you may like to add Scotland to your tour, where you can be inspired by heroic human endeavours in the past and the indomitable Scottish spirit that still lives on today.
