Dette kommer dere til å gjøre

We will begin with a visit to Corcomroe Abbey where I can show you the carvings and share with you knowledge of the plant cures used by 12th Century local monks. After this, we will visit the hidden-away holy well at Uchtmáma in the grounds of three magical early Christian churches. Going on from this we will see some secluded spots near The Burren National Park where the Burren's unique flora grows abundantly between the crags. There, I can share with you how these were used by local people to set broken bones, seal cuts, recover from heart attacks and stave off mental ill-health. Further on, we will visit a magical ringfort and the stunning holy well at Liscannor named in honour of a pagan deity since metamorphosized into our own St Brigid. After a few hours, we will share a light picnic whilst basking in the stunning views over Galway Bay and then return home past the lighthouse along the magical, winding coast road.

I'm a professional researcher with 20 years of media experience and a Master's (Hons) of Indigenous Studies. After years of researching for other people's films and publications (EU, BBC, RTE) I've just finished my own book which contains a series of interviews with faith, folk, orthodox healers and conservation farmers from around the Burren as well as heaps of sound research into holy wells, indigenous cures, herbs and early Christianity in the area. I really look forward to sharing my passion for this subject with you and hearing about your lives and journeys in search of wellness.

JUST A WEE NOTE: THANKS FOR YOUR INTEREST. IF I DON'T RESPOND QUICKLY TO YOUR MESSAGE IT'S JUST THAT I'M AWAY OR OUT OF REACH AS I OFTEN GO ON RETREATS AND WILL RESPOND AS SOON AS I'M BACK ONLINE. I DO CARE ABOUT YOU AND YOUR CUSTOM. THANKS, EILÍS

Eilis gave us a personalized tour that we could not have gotten any other way. It was informative and entertaining. We especially appreciated the plant lore, spiritual history, and slow thoughtful pace.

Eilis made this day to a very special, unique experience. It was one of the highlights of my 2 weeks holiday in Ireland. She has a deep knowledge of all the healing plants and holy places in the area. And one gets quite a lot of historical information without being lectured. I wanted to spend more time out there on the Burren. Eilis is very warm hearted and considers the interests of her guests. It was like spending a day with a friend.

This was a really lovely and wonderful experience! As others have said, it feels truly magical. Eilis took us to several amazing places I never could have found on my own - it was definitely the highlight of an amazing trip, and I left wishing I had more time to spend in the area!

This experience was absolutely so cool, especially if you're interested in the peoples' history of Western Ireland, rather than say, the British colonialist powers. (Castles are great, but there's more to Ireland that that!) It is a lot of walking in beautiful nature, and you will go off the beaten trail, have time for contemplation, and eat wild berries. If you are the kind of person who enjoys long (though not strenuous) walks with an audio book or podcast in your ear - book this! Eillís has a world of knowledge to share, and she can tailor it to what you want to learn.

Eilís was wonderful! I very highly recommend taking a tour with her. She took us to magical places that we would’ve never found on our own and made us feel like we were old friends. She quickly immersed us in to the local culture and tailored her tour to our interests. We felt lucky to have her as our guide and are deeply grateful for the experience. Highlight of our trip!

I have been to Ireland twice, and this specific experience in the Burren with Eilis was the highlight. It was magikal. I wondered if we feel down a rabbit hole into a new world. She is brilliant and so enjoys knowing all the details of things. All I can say is I will want to spend an afternoon with her again!
