Ireland's West Coast

Spiritual Tour Hidden Ireland / Scotland

Lots of travelers who visit Ireland and Scotland see the popular sites that have been beefed up by the country's tourism board so that they can comfortably handle up to a dozen motorcoaches at a time. These are the more famous attractions - The Cliffs of Moher, Newgrange, Blarney Castle, Glendalough, Guinness Storehouse, the Ring of Kerry, the Burren, Connemara.

And these are all very worthy sites.

Our tours are a bit different. While we must include some of these sites (Newgrange, Glendalough), we focus on "thin places" or places where the veil between this world and the eternal world is thin. These are mystical places connected to heroes, legends, stories of people from the Otherworld. These sites have been sacred for thousands of years. They are often part of "hidden Ireland."
These are parts of Ireland that aren't in most of the guidebooks. And most of them can't accomodate the big motorcoaches.

The earth's energy is different in these sites. They impart a kind of peace and healing. Our tours cover anywhere from 20 to 30 different sites in 10 days - some well known like the Giants Causeway and the Burren, but most are part of the hidden landscape. We hire local guides with specialty focuses and we stay in vibrant city centres (Galway, Kilkenny, Derry, Donegal, Dingle and more) so our guests can connect with Irish people and culture.

These tours are life-changing experiences. You will never be the same - you'll find something in these mystical sites - something that is specifically for you.

The complete information on the tours of Scotland and Ireland, the itineraries, list of sites and registration is on the Thin Places Tour website.

Save the stress of self-driving and come with us on a tour of thin places. Read Ten Tips for Travel to Ireland

10 Tips for Travel To Ireland

Mount Brandon - Dingle - ten trips for travelTen ways or tips for getting the most out of your Ireland vacation ...

1. RENT A CAR IF POSSIBLE: Many first-time American visitors will use a tour bus for the land portion of their trip because they are fearful of driving in a foreign country, on the wrong side of the road on the wrong side of the car. If you are a good driver, you will be able to handle driving in Ireland. If you're a little nervous, rent a car with an automatic transmission. It costs more, but shifting is one less thing to think about while driving.

The flexibility of having your own car is twice or three times the value of being dependent on a second party. Also, it's often cheaper to make your car rental reservations on line when you book your airfare. I use Orbitz and Travel Zoo. You can specify the size of the car, insurance choices and standard vs. automatic, and it will be ready for you when you arrive at the airport.

2. GET A GOOD ROAD MAP OR TWO: - I always use two different maps - .... read full post.
