Fairies, Forts & Folklore
Known as “fairy forts”, Ireland’s landscape is full of ring forts and other heritage monuments that connect us with the lives of our ancestors. This tour will introduce stories and local folklore, your friendly , proffesional guide will collect you from your hotel and you'll be immersed in the stories that bring Mayo's enchanting cultural landscape to life.
Let us introduce you to the traditions of the Old Irish Wake, where one was invited to take a "dudeen of baccy" and a glass of uisce beatha. We will reserve a chair by the fire for our seanchaí to sing a song and tell a tale from the old days. So put that in your dudeen and smoke it!
Robert Lloyd Praeger, who walked over all of Ireland "with reverent feet", he said, eschewing motor transport "stopping often, watching closely, listening carefully".
