September 28 - October 10, 2012
Our workshop will begin on Galway Bay in a seaside town called Kinvarra. Kinvarra will serve as our home base while we explore the Cliffs of Moher, the Burren, small villages and Galway Town. We will then travel to the medieval city of Kilkenny, where we will visit ancient castles, abbeys and ruins along with enchanting countryside and small Irish towns. One of the many allures of Ireland is the ease at which the old and the new survive together; history is ever present at every curve along the winding roadways.
After spending time in a medieval city, we will relax for an evening in the remote forest park of Gougane Barra, where St. Finbar, according to tradition, built his secluded monastery in the 6th century. This is an area of profound beauty and simplicity.
Our final destination is the Dingle Peninsula, once cited as "the most beautiful place on earth" by National Geographic. Our days will be filled with visits to Gallarus Oratory, Inch Beach, beehive huts and weather permitting , the Blasket Islands.
The last night will be spent in a hotel close to Shannon Airport where we will have a closing reception and slide show.
