What to expect?

Ireland would not be Ireland without its incredible archaeological remains, straight out of a history as rich as it is captivating! Dolmens, tombs, ruined castles… So many vibrant testimonies of the past that remind us that Ireland is a Celtic island, later invaded by the Vikings, then by the British crown. Real treasures, exposed in the museums, but also visitable on their construction sites: enough to plunge into the heart of a fascinating tumultuous past!

From dolmens… to Irish castles

Ireland never stops discovering new ancestral sites!

Whether you are fascinated by megaliths, abbeys, cathedrals or castles, you will be served! The country is teeming with world-famous sites!

We love their ambitious architecture, their hidden histories, and their special, typically Irish charm!

Many of these remains are accessible free of charge: it is possible to venture into most of them, provided you are authorized and respect the place. Because these castles, abbeys and other exceptional places are fragile historical sites, often in ruins: it is important to be careful, to respect them, while paying attention to you.
