The Building Of An Iron Age Dwelling
From April 1st to 11th an EU-sponsored group of craftspeople from across Europe will be learning traditional Irish skills at Brigit’s Garden, Co. Galway, by building an Iron Age dwelling. This will be like a Crannóg but on land.
Visitors are welcome to come and watch as they make walls of hazel wattle and a roof of ash poles. The roof will be thatched later through June. This new building will be a wonderful asset to the garden, and will compliment the existing Roundhouse, Hazel function and workshop room and the meditative and experiential wind chamber passage cairn.

Costs may seem higher than some Irish tours and vacations but, from experience, our travellers appreciate the extra value, extra overnight comforts, better pacing and a true experience of the spirit, traditions and hidden beauty of Ireland well away from the tourist boardwalk.
Costs are subject to currency fluctuations
but you can pay with your currency rate at time of payment.
