Šta ćete raditi

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.

This was an amazing experience. I loved spending time in the Burren and spending time with Eilís, who is a magical lady in her own right. Learning about the flora of the area, combined with the history and spirituality of the region, felt like a special insight that I could not have gotten anywhere else. I really valued this experience, and would recommend it to anyone who has an interest in these subjects.

Great trip, Eilìs knows a lot about the Burren and had no trouble wandering down rabbit holes as the conversation took us. Great care was taken about COVID issues, which was reassuring.

A wonderful experience. It felt like being met by an old friend, who is welcoming, full of knowledge and tips, honest, fun, flexible. The morning brought the sacred aspect of the Burren to life. I highly recommend this experience.

This was a very nice trip to The Burren, an area I hadn't really gotten to see in my 2 years in Ireland, due to a lack of a vehicle. Eilís was very good about customizing the trip to what I wanted to see, which was the National Park proper and its geology and plants, so we went out for a walk around Mullaghmore, which was simply amazing. We then went out to an organic farm in the Burren, with a Holy Well and ringfort, somewhere I probably would not have thought to go to myself and really enjoyed seeing. And finally went to several amazing historic church ruins. Eilís is very knowledgeable about the history, landscape, and medicinal plants of the area (she's written a book on the area), and I learned a great deal, and was able to point me to references on subjects I was interested in. I highly recommend hiring her for a tour of the Burren and/or the nearby coast.
