Sacred Sites Tour

The Land of Saints & Scholars

Ireland is well known as the land of saints and scholars and consequently our landscape is full of sacred sites and "thin places" from holy wells and standing stones to monastic abbeys.  Our day tour, starting from Westport, will visit some of the most important spiritual and archaeologically significant sites in our sacred heritage.


Routes may vary from time to time - however Mayo has a huge selection of sacred sites of relevance.
