Today, our Sacred Tour of Celtic Ireland begins with an early departure as we travel to the Drombeg stone circle known as the ‘Druid’s Altar.’ This special site is aligned with the Winter Solstice. Starting at Winter Solstice (for 3 days), the sun disappears behind the hill on the horizon and then reappears in the lower valley. At the point of reappearance, the stone circle is dramatically illuminated. Remember; don’t sit on a Druid altar unless you can handle the vibrations!
In the afternoon, we’ll travel to Blarney where you settle into your hotel or shop at the Blarney Woollen Mills. You may visit Blarney Castle and optionally kiss the Blarney Stone. Here we experience the beauty of Blarney and its ancient Druid heritage. In Rock Close ask the giant Dolmen if it still rocks. Maneuver the Wishing Steps and have your dream come true. Experience the sacredness at the altar of the Druids or stand in their ancient circle. Will we see the Witch as she pokes the ashes of her kitchen fire? Are there fairies at the bottom of the garden? We can of course just simply marvel at the unrivaled beauty that Mother Nature so generously sets before us.
