'I first came to Brigit's Garden while on a Celtic Heritage tour of Ireland. The magic of Brigit's Garden was so compelling that I found myself flying back to Ireland just months later  to visit the gardens!'
Mary Meade, Seattle, Washington, USA

'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.'
