Stories of Ireland

September 13-25, 2018

The Celtic myths of Ireland are deeply embedded in the landscape of ring forts, fairy hills, and megaliths cloaked in mystery.  Abbeys emerge through the mists of time, preserving the light of knowledge though the dark ages.  Castles tell stories of invasion and oppression.  Join us for a 12 day tour through Ireland and Northern Ireland where we will explore the stories that are hidden in the landscape and spend our evenings reveling in music sessions at local pubs and storytelling events.
