Illuminated Paths: A Tour of Ireland's Ancient East's Saints and Scholars.

Embark on a captivating journey through Ireland's rich history of spirituality and scholarship with our Illuminated Paths: A Tour of Ireland's Ancient East's Saints and Scholars.


This unique tour explores the profound legacy of Ireland's early Christian monks and scholars who played a pivotal role in preserving and spreading knowledge during the medieval period.

Your journey begins in the vibrant city of Dublin, home to the Book of Kells, an intricately illuminated manuscript created by Celtic monks. Visit Trinity College to marvel at this extraordinary work of art and scholarship. From Dublin, travel to the serene Glendalough, a monastic settlement nestled in a glacial valley, where the ruins and round tower tell stories of Saint Kevin's hermitage.

As the tour progresses, explore the ancient monastic site of Clonmacnoise on the banks of the River Shannon, renowned for its high crosses and round towers. Journey to the Rock of Cashel, a spectacular group of medieval buildings set on a limestone hill, associated with Saint Patrick.

Each day of the tour reveals the fascinating blend of spirituality and scholarship that characterizes Ireland's Ancient East. Visit Kells, where the town's namesake, the Book of Kells, was completed, and Monasterboice, with its high crosses and round tower.

The tour includes engaging talks by knowledgeable guides, tranquil moments in historic sites, and interactions with local historians. As you travel through picturesque landscapes and charming villages, you'll gain a deeper understanding of the profound impact of Ireland's saints and scholars on the cultural and intellectual heritage of Europe.

This tour is perfect for those interested in history, spirituality, and the rich tapestry of Irish culture. Illuminated Paths invites you to step back in time and walk in the footsteps of some of Ireland's most influential historical figures.
