The haunting essence of Ireland and Brigit is palpable in Brigit's Garden. My visit there proved to be the defining experience of my trip to Ireland. In the gardens I had a sense that time no longer existed, past and present were happening at once. The power of my experience lingers still, and inspired me to compose and record a CD of harp music entitled 'In Brigit's Garden" when I returned to the US.

The pilgrims absolutely loved being at the garden and got a great deal from the workshop. It provided a good foundation for the rest of the trip and was one of the highlights of the pilgrimage. Thank you so much. JC tours
There is no better or more powerful place to step into the pilgrimage energy, to sink into the rhythms and cycles of the Earth as we begin to explore the rhythms and cycles of our own lives. The setting, the gracious and welcoming people, the Roundhouse and the fabulous food are a delightful dance of the senses for all who visit. Judith Nilan, Stonefire Tours
