Folklore, Myths & Legends
7 Day Mythology, Movies and Legends of the Wild Atlantic Way
From the legend of St Patrick banishing Satan from a cave resulting in the Rock of Cashel to “kissing the Blarney stone”, Folklore is embedded in Irish culture. Experience the most beautiful scenery and sites of mythology and movies such as Star Wars and Skellig Michael off the Ring of Kerry. Visit Kerry’s capital in Killarney for a whiskey tasting masterclass paired with cheese and chocolate. Why not visit Ireland’s traditional islands that offer medieval forts, Celtic churches, dramatic cliffs and Irish speaking inhabitants on Aran islands or the charm of Ireland’s only Fjord in Killary Harbour. From the furthest south south in Mizen Head and the quaint seaside town of Kinsale and harbour of Roundstone to the far north in Malin Head. The Cliffs of Moher is Ireland’s most rugged geological wonder recognised all over the world but we can’t decide which dramatic cliff face is more spectacular, that is why we offer you a chance to compare with its’ lesser known sisters in the remote Slieve League. This Irish tour has everything from supernatural beings, folklore, food and fresh air.
