What the guests have to say

A wonderful experience. Nicky led us through a magical landscape featuring an incredible intensity of ancient and not so ancient sites featuring stone circles, ogham stones, amazing raths, burial grounds, religious and spiritual sites, holy wells all in a beautiful forest landscape. Nicky was knowledgeable on local folklore, myths and legends and put the archaeological sites in context in a wonderfully engaging way. Highly recommended.
