5 Day Celtic Retreat in Glendalough, County Wicklow

5 Day Celtic Journey and Celtic Retreat in Ireland

Each day we will have a Celtic Gathering.

Our gatherings give you an internal understanding and feel for the Celtic Tradition – a world filled with mystery and natural wonder. Let the poems, music, stories and blessings of this ancient land add an inspirational richness.

Throughout our Celtic Retreat together there will be a little quiet time for contemplation allowing the landscape offer its spirit, reveal its story and to give space for integration. And to make this a rich and personal time in Ireland and to deeply experience our Celtic Culture we keep the groups small.

Allow the Celtic Spirit and the Sacred Mystery stir your imagination…… If you are travelling by public transport there is a Bus to Dublin City Centre in the late afternoon, or you can stay an extra night in Glendalough (not included in the price), or travel onwards with your own transport.
