'Thank you, I feel so much peace. One of the most beautiful spots on earth.'
One-hour Celtic Heritage garden tour
Experience the Magic!
Experience the richness of Irish mythology with one of our experienced tour guides, who will lead you through our Celtic-themed gardens. Relax in our hand-crafted basket swings and sit on the 6,000 years old bog-oak throne; celebrate in our interlocking stone circles, or wonder at our giant woman sculpted of earth; refresh your senses with scents of herbs and wild flowers and admire sculpture and artwork by some of Ireland's leading artists.
After your tour enjoy our tranquil nature trail, the living willow play area, an original ring-fort, the stone chamber, the Roundhouse, crannóg and calendar sundial - the largest in Ireland.
If wet, we will offer a talk and audio-visual presentation in our thatched Roundhouse instead of a tour.
Brigit's Garden is a popular destination for sacred site tours in Ireland.
Irish-speaking tour guides are available.

'There is no better or more powerful place to step into the pilgrimage energy, to sink into the rhythms and cycles of the Earth as we begin to explore the rhythms and cycles of our own lives. The setting, the gracious and welcoming people, the Roundhouse, the fabulous food, are a delightful dance of the senses for all who visit. '

'Brigit's Garden was the highlight of our tour in the Galway area. A great, great visit, a very engaging hostess and a lovely break with hot scones and tea. Well worth the time, we will be back.'

'A wonderful experience in a special place which speaks everywhere of Ireland and its history, and the reality of the supernatural invading the natural.'

'Sensational tour! Though our students were just off the plane and all jet-lagged, they can't stop talking about Brigit's Garden. It was a great introduction to Ireland and to the west. Thanks thanks thanks! We'll be back in touch about next year.'
