I created the Sacred Ireland tour after decades of visiting and living by Ireland’s sites. Moreover, my research as a writer and my personal network of knowledgeable friends inspired me to share my insights. Thus for instance, my understanding of international ley lines led me to include the the megalithic cairns of Sligo, the Lough Crew Cairns and the wonderful sites in the Boyne Valley.
There are many options for your itinerary so here I present but one:
Dublin and the Boyne Valley of Sacred Ireland
If you are flying into Dublin, we can start in your Sacred Ireland tour in Dublin’s Trinity College! Admire and discuss the Book of Kells and the art forms of many other wonderful manuscripts on display of the Golden Age of the Celts. Moving onto the Boyne Valley, we pay more attention than other tours would to the unspoilt and under-excavated site of Dowth. There has been little excavation here. Thus it is more natural and accessible, and yet somehow it is far more mysterious. You will appreciate the context of the landscape by continuing your journey on foot to Newgrange from Dowth. This is a magical walk along the Boyne. Then the journey continues onto the Hill of Tara, where the ancient high Kings were inaugurated, and where the myths of Ireland’s races still linger, and the faery realms still reign….
Lough Gur a jewel in Sacred Ireland
The Burren the spiritual essence of Sacred Ireland
We continue your Sacred Ireland tour by visiting some the most beautiful hermitages of early monks in the Burren. Early Christian sites are often very special to visit, as the early Christians were very connected to the divinity found in nature. There are also many cairns and tombs in the Burren, far more in terms of density. In Jackie’s books you may read of their significance.
County Sligo for ancient Sacred Ireland
County Donegal for early Christianity
The tours are completely flexible depending where you start from. Above all I allow ample time to visit fairy sites and sacred sites. Many perceive these as goddess sites, which means that they can detect a strong divine feminine presence in the land. I will explain the qualities and alignments of the sites. Each of you will have natural propensities to sense some things more than others. Above all I support your own journey of perception. Early Christian sites are often very special to visit, as the early Christians were very connected to the divinity found in nature.
Irish music should of course be sampled at some point en route. For it is through music that the land is captured in its essence. This tour is for those who want total immersion in the other-worldliness of Ireland’s natural landscapes.
