Co budeš dělat

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.

JUST A WEE NOTE: THANKS FOR YOUR INTEREST. IF I DON'T RESPOND QUICKLY TO YOUR MESSAGE IT'S JUST THAT I'M AWAY OR OUT OF REACH AS I OFTEN GO ON RETREATS AND WILL RESPOND AS SOON AS I'M BACK ONLINE. I DO CARE ABOUT YOU AND YOUR CUSTOM. THANKS, EILÍS

Kde budeš

We'll visit Corcomroe Abbey where you'll learn about natural cures used by the monks and see 12th Century carvings of herbs. From there we'll visit the holy well at Uchtmáma used since pagan times as a cure for cataracts. Also on the trip will be St Brigid's well at Liscannor, lesser-known parts of The Burren National Park where you'll find a magical well with a diabetes cure. We will finish off with a light picnic on the shores of Galway Bay.

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.

Eilis gave us a personalized tour that we could not have gotten any other way. It was informative and entertaining. We especially appreciated the plant lore, spiritual history, and slow thoughtful pace.

Eilis made this day to a very special, unique experience. It was one of the highlights of my 2 weeks holiday in Ireland. She has a deep knowledge of all the healing plants and holy places in the area. And one gets quite a lot of historical information without being lectured. I wanted to spend more time out there on the Burren. Eilis is very warm hearted and considers the interests of her guests. It was like spending a day with a friend.

This was a really lovely and wonderful experience! As others have said, it feels truly magical. Eilis took us to several amazing places I never could have found on my own - it was definitely the highlight of an amazing trip, and I left wishing I had more time to spend in the area!

This experience was absolutely so cool, especially if you're interested in the peoples' history of Western Ireland, rather than say, the British colonialist powers. (Castles are great, but there's more to Ireland that that!) It is a lot of walking in beautiful nature, and you will go off the beaten trail, have time for contemplation, and eat wild berries. If you are the kind of person who enjoys long (though not strenuous) walks with an audio book or podcast in your ear - book this! Eillís has a world of knowledge to share, and she can tailor it to what you want to learn.
