Sacred Ireland tour

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.

Thanks again for everything! We enjoyed the trip and certainly had some great laughs. Our favorite place there was the farmers land and the fairy circle in the Burren.  Hard to pick because it was all great in Ireland.

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….

Journeying westward your Sacred Ireland tour takes in Lough Gur, one of Ireland’s most sacred sites.  For a start, the local hill and lake are full of myths and legends. A massive stone circle stands nearby that is unusual in its construction, and difficult to date.

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.

Leaving the mysterious limestone hills of the Burren behind, we come to the Burren Lowlands. Here lie hidden many poetic haunts of South Galway where Yeats used to live.

Jackie, everyone really enjoyed your tour yesterday - so thank you so much.  All the group were delighted with where you took them. The locations were scenic and your information both interesting and entertaining. The visit to Yeats' home and your reading of some of his linked poetry were really first class.Thanks for a fabulous time in the fresh air and countryside! I highly recommend anyone seeking a unique insight into the Burren and its history to engage Jackie as their expert guide.
Once again, thank you for taking my party of Californians round the Burren Lowlands.

County Sligo for ancient Sacred Ireland

Later we can pay our respects at Yeats” grave in Yeats Country, poignantly situated below Ben Bulben in his ancestral Sligo. There are countless megalithic and fairy sites in the Sligo area.

County Donegal for early Christianity

We have the optional of visiting the northwest region where St Columba hailed from in Donegal: Glencolumbkille.  .

Flexibility Rules

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.
