We will be spending our 7 nights in this estate manor. Two sisters per room (separate beds), with private bathroom.
Our accommodations are a privately owned country mansion and rooms are all different. However even the smallest room is larger than a typical European hotel room, and each room has its own dedicated bathroom. We will assign rooms based on first come first serve, as well as individual needs.

Newgrange & Knowth
Newgrange is the best known Irish passage tomb and dates to c.3,200BC. It is believed to be associated with the people of the Goddess Danu, a race of super-natural beings who according to tradition ruled Ireland before the coming of the Celts and afterwards retreated into the fairy mounds and forts.
Healing Wells are ancient places of power associated with local deities. Their healing properties have been in existence for thousands of years.

We will visit the royal capital of Connacht, home of the Warrior Queen Medb (Maeve). This is also thought to be the resting place of the last Pagan King of Ireland. We will visit the Rath (hill) as well as the Cave of the Cats, thought to be the entrance of the Underworld, where the Morrigan emerges each Samhain to lead the wild hunt.
to Knocknashee, also known as the Hill of the Fairies. The legend is that the Sidhe (pronounced Shee) retreated into the mounds to another dimension, or otherworld, and left the topside world for the humans. Some believe that these mounds are portals to that otherworld, and during the periods of time around Samhain and Beltaine the veil between these worlds is thin enough for contact with this magickal ancient race of beings.

Hill of Tara
An ancient archaeological site that contains a number of monuments. It was the seat of the High King of Ireland and a sacred site associated with Kingship rituals.
This magickal place inspired Yeats to write poetry about fairies including the famous poem, “The Stolen Child.”

There are many mythological stories associated with the Caves of Keash, including the legend of three sisters, called the “Hags of Winter,” where they set a trap to capture Fionn, and bound him with a magic cord that made him a weak as an old man.
This tour has become a tour that follows our wyld heart's desire. I thrive on being known for adding "bonus shit!" Sometimes life creates opportunities for added adventures and I'm not one to pass by such gifts. Be prepared to visit many more enchanted and sacred places. This is truly a mystical journey of a lifetime!
