Full Day Sacred Ireland TourThe Antrim Glens and Causeway Coast possess a vast number of ancient sites and most remain unknown to all but the locals. There are simple wells and stones which are still regarded as places of pilgrimage and healing by the local people. There are also sites of national importance, holy mountains, valleys and rivers created by giants and protected by fairies; ancient churches, round towers, mass rocks built on sites held sacred for thousands of years.
We can also visit Slemish, a volcanic mountain and the legendary first known Irish home of St. Patrick. This is a great tour for those interested in history.
