Heal Your Home, Heal Your Soul

Packing

I recommend traveling lightly. One medium suitcase and a daypack should be sufficient.

 

Clothing

 

The weather in Ireland is very changeable and rain is customary. Here is what I would recommend:

  • Waterproof shoes or boots for visiting sites in the countryside (mud and sheep poo are inevitable)

  • Shoes for indoor wear (ie; flats or sandals)

  • An extra pair of running or walking shoes

  • Windproof/rainproof jacket

  • Bring layers. One sweater should be sufficient

  • For our dinners at Temple house, you may want one outfit that is smart casual (a scarf dresses up a t-shirt in a snap, and a pair of flats to slip on your feet is a good idea)

 

Ceremonies

  • Bring a ribbon or two to tie on the branches of sacred trees

  • A stone from home to honour Maeve’s grave

  • Natural offering items (i.e. dried fruit, teas, tobacco, anything biodegradable)

 

Personal Items

  • Journal and pen

  • Prescription medicine

  • UK plug adapter

  • A copy of your identifying pages of your passport: a lost or stolen passport can be difficult to replace while traveling.

  • Bring your own drinking water bottle. You can either fill it from the tap (faucet) which is safe to drink or buy large bottles of water to keep in your room and use your own reusable water bottle for day trips. This may sound trivial but it will save wasting plastic water bottles during our tour.  Also, a travel mug is a great thing to have for portable hot drinks.  Each room has a kettle if you are someone who needs a coffee or tea as soon as you get up in the morning – feel free to pack instant hot drink mixes!

 

Travel Tip

  • Have a set of clothes (including your raincoat) and toiletries with you in your carry-on in case of slow coming luggage.
