These are specialised tours allowing you to experience meditations, healing and ritual.

Irish Spirituality has always had a close association with the Ancient Goddesses and Celtic heritage because unlike many other ancient lands, Ireland has never forgotten its past or history. In tales handed down from generation to generation, Ireland enriched its past and saw glory in what it was and where it was going.

Ireland is a land of hidden mysteries, with many places of interest. Perhaps the most intriguing and awe-inspiring being Newgrange Passage Tomb which is older then than the Pyramids of Egypt and Stonehenge. However there are many other places rich in history and legend, healing and spirituality.
