In May of 2011 I will be escorting a group of travelers to Ireland to visit some thin places. Our travels will include the Newgrange passage tombs, followed by a house party in Dublin. The next day we'll be off to Kildare to visit the old town and cathedral as well as St. Brigid's holy well. From there we'll travel Holy Cross Abbey where there is said to be a relic of the true cross. Then onto the Rock Cashel, one of Ireland's most thin places and Athassel Priory ruins at twilight (very mystical site). After a night in Cashel town we'll move on to Ardmore, a beautiful seaside town where St. Declan founded his monastery, then onto Cork city where the group will have a free day and be able to relax or take optional tours that inlcude Cobh, Kinsale and St. Gobnaits Holy Well.
After two nights in Cork we'll pass by Timoleague, Drombeg Stone Circle and Skibbereen, finally arriving in the Medieval city - Kenmare. The next day we'll explore the Beara peninsula and its stone circle, seaside views, mountain trails and mystical southern tip where Dursey Island accessed only by boat or cable car. Then on to Gouganne Barre, the smallest church in Ireland, sent in a valley on a site where St. Finbar once founded a monastery (one of the most scenic places in Ireland). After traveling through Gap of Dunloe, we'll arrive in the most mystical place of all - Dingle. One free day will allow for relaxation and exploring and we'll end the trip with a farewell party.
Please consider joining us. It will be one of the most memorable experiences. Traveling to Ireland is always wonderful, but 10 days of travel to mystical places charged with spiritual energy is life-changing.
