Sacred West of Ireland Vision Tours

Visit the ancient Sacred Sites of the utterly beautiful West of Ireland

Vision Journeys to Meet the Gods and Goddesses of the Tuatha De Danaan
Earth Energies
Geomantic Work

Our Tours visit the ancient sacred sites of the West of Ireland, and their specialty is connecting to land energies and vision contact work with the Gods and Goddesses of the ancient Irish: The Tuatha De Danaan.

We also do on-site shamanic journeys and geomancy work and share knowledge of relevant archaeology and tradition. They combine vision work with magic: the raising of consciousness through meeting these divine beings on the very threshold of the Sacred.

Tour Guide Language is English
(But Maggie has some French and German and can be available, see below)

What is so special about these Sacred West of Ireland Vision Journeys?

In addition to visiting utterly beautiful ancient sacred sites of the West of Ireland, all in settings of utterly superb ancient beauty and exalted places of land, sea and skies, these visits also include vision journeys to meet the Gods and Goddesses of the ancient Irish, and in some cases, also, to work with earth energies – and having the poetry of W B Yeats read to you as well. 

See below for:

The ‘We Are‘ Presentation
The Key Guidance Info
​The Pay to Book buttons

​​Now, here’s more detail about each Tour and how to book:

 

Tours 1-9:
Each Tour takes an average of 3 to 5 hours.
There’s basic price of 100 Euros for 1 or 2 persons, then a supplementary charge of 50 Euros for 3rd and each additional person over three.
We meet up at an agreed rendezvous place, and for up to three persons, you can often have a lift to site.
These sites all use public footpaths and are accessible to a normally fit person.
Tour 10 is all-day and has a basic price of 200 Euros for 1, or 2 persons, then a supplementary charge of 50 Euros for 3rd and each additional person over three.
To book, email me and I will send you a PayPal request once the day, time and place have been finalised. Email: michaelconneely@gmail.com
Basically, because each tour includes not only visit to a sacred site (plus a couple of other wonderful places on the way) but also transformation, individual vision work and energy work, there’s only time for one tour out of the nine available per day.
We either drive up to four persons to site, or we all rendezvous at an easily accessible place near site and drive to it from there.

​And, now: here’s a summary of the Ten Sacred West of Ireland Tours we offer:

 

1. The Battlefield of Moytura, including the Bed of The Couple and Heapstown Cairn.
2. Oweynagat Cave for Warrior Initiation.
3. Loch Gill and WB Yeats poetry: Dooney Rock (The Fiddler of Dooney), Slishwood (The Stolen Child) and The Lake Isle of Innis Free plus the Giant in The Landscape.
4. The Carrowkeel Megalithic Tombs, including Ancestral Healing and Vision Journey to meet Great Goddess Danu.
5. Deer Park Court Tomb, including vision journey to meet a God or Goddess of the ancient Irish and earth energy work.
6. Loch Conn Woodlands and Ogham work
7. Ben Bulben Forest Walk: Vision work with the Gods and Goddesses of the Tuatha De Danaan and earth energy work. W B Yeats: The Hosting of the Sidhe.
8. Aughris Head, Manannan and the Four Sacred Weapons of the Tuatha De Danaan: The Stone of Fal, The Sword of Nuada, The Spear of Llugh and the Cauldron of the Dagda.
9. Carrowmore Megalithic Cemetery for Geomantic attunement, visionary energy work and portal work.
10. As a 10th offering, offered at a slightly higher charge, there is the journey to the top of Croagh Patrick Mountain to restore Corra to the Mountain. Tradition has it that in 432 AD when Saint Patrick set out to convert the Irish to the Catholic Church, he did a retreat of 40 days on the top of Croagh Patrick, during which he was said to have met Corra, the spirit of the land. They fought. She engulfed him in her jaws, but St. Patrick then threw his bell of exorcism at her, bested her, and confined her to the loch behind the Mountain, Lough na Corra – for eternity! The fate of the Irish has not gone well since their conversion. This tour works to restore Corra to her sacred Mountain.

​The Battlefield of Moytura

Visit 1

In this very special vision journey, we visit the site of The great Second Battlefield of Moytura. It is situated above Loch Arrow, where the Tuatha De Danaan led by the God, Llugh, defeated the Formorians led by Balor of The Evil Eye.
The Battle is described in the medieval manuscripts of Cath Maigh Tuireadh and Lebor Gabala Erenn (Book of Invasions).
Before the Battle, the Great God, Llugh called on each of the Tuatha De Danaan to name his or her special skill that they bring to the battlefield.
The Vision Work we do on the Battlefield, meets the Gods and Goddesses of the Ancient Irish and can include meeting Llugh. We also do rock energy vision work with the Eglone Stone (The stone by which Llugh is siad to have directed the Battle).
The climb from the road to the battlefield plateau is steep, but fairly short. The weather on the plateau can be exposed.
​The views are sublime and utterly out of this world and vastly wide-ranging

​During our Battlefield of Moytura Tour, we do Earth Energy Work at the Court Tomb on the plateau, and also at the central stone where Llugh directed the Battle. This stone is known as Sidhe Llugh or The Eglone Stone.
Loch na Seuil is visible from the Battlefield, the place where Llugh’s slingshot drove Balor’s evil eye.
As a very special bonus, included on the way to the Battlefield are two tour stops and magical vision work/meditations at:

Heapstown Cairn
The first visit on the way to the Battlefield is at Well of Slain, now called Heapstown Cairn: where the different healing approaches of the Healer Gods are breifly explored, meeting: Dian Cecht, Miach and Airmid.

The Bed of the Couple:
​The second visit on the way to the Battlefield, is where the River Unshin leaves Loch Arrow.
​This was where the Divine Union took place between The Morrigan The War Goddess and The Dagda The Good God,on the eve of the Battle, thus assuring ethical Sovereignty and also Victory for the Tuatha De Danaan.
See my Blog post sharing the geomantic perceptions of people who came on one of my Sacred West of Ireland Tours to visit The Bed of The Couple:

Morrigan Warrior Initiation Journey inside Oweynagat Cave

Visit 2

The Morrigan warrior initiation journey is in the afternoon, but we join up at the rendezvous place over an hour beforehand.

This cave was also a site of initiation for young men and women to become Iron Age warriors, and we also do the journey from the special point of view of our becoming the Spiritual Warrior.
Meet The Morrigan, the Battle Goddess of the ancient Irish, the Tuatha De Danaan. Her energy centre is Oweynagat Cave, also known as the Cave of Cruachan.

​The Morrigan is the ethical Goddess who confirms sovereignty and who requires that we recognise Her correctly. She embodies the need in human life to perceive correctly the true spiritual nature of the battlefields in our life, and that we respond to them by fulfilling our high spiritual potential to become the Spiritual Warrior.
We hear about the young teenage super-warrior Cuchulainn, whom The Morrigan loved for his martial powers and courage. But unfortunately Cuchulainn kept failing to recognise The Morrigan in her meetings with him, and he kept failing to recognise the true nature of the battlefields, and so he died. But She loved him, and so, a shape-shifter as well as a war goddess, in the form of a crow, she perched on the standing stone to which he had lashed himself as he was dying, so that he would die nobly and upright.
Cave entry requires suitable attire, as it is very wet and muddy, and can only be accessed by sliding into the entrance on your backside.

W. B. Yeats Country – Loch Gill

Visit 3

We walk along the side of Loch Gill at three locations, the site of W B Yeats’ poems: Dooney Rock) The Fiddler of Dooney, The Lake Isle of Innisfree and The Giant in the Landscape view, Slish Wood (The Stolen child).
We share the poems and we experience the fairy energies of Slish Wood, and we work with the Cosmic Man: the Giant in the Landscape.
A hundred years ago, W B Yeats and others opened the door, just the first crack, to contact being renewed with the Gods and the Goddesses of the Ancient Irish. They had retreated to the Hollow Hills and the Sidhe’s despairing of a world that could receive their spiritual connection, that could appreciate their magic and their special skills – the skills they won during their long voyagings in exile.
But now, the world is becoming ready to hear them. W B Yeats is Ireland’ greatest poet, and he worked with Lady Gregory, AE, Ella Young and others. He lies buried beneath Ben Bulben Mountain, nearby.
W B Yeats composed many of his great poems on the shores of Loch Gill, for example ‘The Stolen Child’, shown left, arising from W B Yates work at Slish Wood with Lady Gregory, and sung by the Waterboys, one of whose musicians lives in Sligo: Steve Wickham.
William Butler Yeats’ family were highly artistic; his father John and brother Jack were esteemed painters. His sisters known as Lollie and Lily—became involved in the Arts and Crafts movement. He was a working visionary spiritual colleague of Lady Gregory and he was a lifelong friend of Countess Markiewicz, who was one of the main leaders of the 1916 Uprising against the evils of British colonial rule of Ireland.

Michael Conneely studied W B Yeats at Oxford University and his MA included: ‘Yeats and Eliot as Harbingers of a New Age’. We hear about the magical systems that W B Yeats embraced, and we share the issues about contact with the Gods as faces of The Divine.​

Add on Visit: Rosses Point

As an optional add-on visit, you can drive following the Loch Gill event to Rosses point, half an house from Loch Gill, and a major place in W B Yeats’ childhood. Rosses Point has wonderful views south to Knocknarea, over Sligo Bay, where you can see (the real) Coney Island, the inspiring statue of the woman reaching out her arms to the fishermen lost at sea, and dedicated to the women who waited through the long sea voyages of thei husbands to the far ends of the Earth from Sligo Harbour. Also there is the home of W.B. & Jacks Yeats’ Uncle Henry Middleton. the Coast Guard Look Out Point where the young W. B. heard endless tales of far away places and the supernatural happenings of the sea. There’s the famous Black Rock Lighthouse and the Metal Man statue. The beach at the end of Rosses Point is lovely with views of Lissadell House.

Carrowkeel Megaliths

Visit 4

Carrowkeel is the noble mountain top cluster of fourteen Neolithic megalithic tombs built four thousand years ago by Ireland’s First Farmers. Nearby you can see the hut remains of the Neolithic people who built the burial tombs.

The farmer’s roots can be traced back to the Middle East, Balkans areas with same DNA as Catul Hyuk in Southern Turkey. Using stages places along the way through the Mediterranean, and northwards past Spain and Brittan, they travelled to Ireland in boats made of wicker framework covered with cow hide, and brought with them.

​The Carrowkeel tombs are on the Bricklieve Hills, overlooking Lough Arrow, shaped into fascinating valleys by the glaciers of the last ice age. The views are exalted and far-ranging.
​Across beautiful Loch Arrow, you can see the Battlefield of Moytura where the Tuatha De Danaan fought the dark and evil Formorians.
We enter the tombs and do vision journey to meet one of the Gods and Goddesses of the ancient Irish, usually Great Goddess Danu, and we also do Ancestral Healing Work.
The pathway to the foot of the first tomb is easy to walk along, but then the ascent is just a little bit taxing, but totally OK for the average walker.

​Deer Park Court Tomb

Visit 5

Deer Park Court Tomb is in a clearing above beautiful high woodland. From the tomb you can see the head of the ‘Giant in the Landscape’ above Loch Gill.
At the tomb, we attune to the portal energies of the central chamber, and to the energies of the high-quartz rocks that formed the burial chambers off the central court. We envision the lives of the First Farmers of Ireland who built this court tomb to house their beloved dead.
The Tour Centrepiece is that we also do vision journey to meet one of the Gods and Goddesses of the ancient Irish, and work with the energies in the rocks.
The ascent to the Court Tomb is by beautiful public pathway and manageable for the average walker.

​​Loch Conn Woodlands

Visit 6

Deer Park Court Tomb is in a clearing above beautiful high woodland. From the tomb you can see the head of the ‘Giant in the Landscape’ above Loch Gill.
At the tomb, we attune to the portal energies of the central chamber, and to the energies of the high-quartz rocks that formed the burial chambers off the central court. We envision the lives of the First Farmers of Ireland who built this court tomb to house their beloved dead.
The Tour Centrepiece is that we also do vision journey to meet one of the Gods and Goddesses of the ancient Irish, and work with the energies in the rocks.

Nearby is the North Mayo Genealogy Centre which has one of the best cafes in the world called The Secret Garden. And indeed, the Centre does have a walled garden of exceptional beauty as well. There is a separate charge for entry to the garden, which also covers the beautiful organic allotments cared for beyond the gardens. And a separate charge too for the beautiful museum there to of the history of this part of Mayo.

​Ben Bulben Forest Walk and The Hosting of the Sidhe

Visit 7

Ben Bulben. The rock formations are spectacular. The views astounding. This is the site of the poem, The Hosting of The Sidhe, by W B Yeats. W B Yeats’ poem the Hosting of the Sidhe centres on Ben Bulben, and also Knocknarea across Sligo Bay, opposite, and Cailleach Bherra the Bed of the Hag, Great ancient Earth Goddess, in the Ballygawley Mountains, in-between the two. The poem is beautifully put to music by The Waterboys. The prow of Ben Bulben Mountain juts to the heavens majestically as we walk below in the Ben Bulben Forest Park.

​The woodland is special, and the Tour Centrepiece is that we do vision journey to meet one of the Gods and Goddesses of the ancient Irish. Many people love to attune to the Earth Energies here as well.
Towards the end of the walk there’s a breathtaking view across Donegal Bay to the magnificent Slieve League Mountain Cliffs, and, standing on the Forest Walk pathway, beneath your feet at the margin of the Ocean, you can see Streedagh Strand (site of a Spanish Armada shipwreck) and offshore, Innishmurray Island. And looking North, there’s the superb landscape of Luke’s Bridge, Ben Wisken Mountain and the Glenniff Horseshoe Valley. To the South is Sligo bay, (the real) Coney Island and Knocknarea.

At the start of the walk, we enter a secret area where there are barrows and cashels, and at the end of the walk we can visit another cashel. 

Here’s a Testimonial from lovely Arkansas people who came on my Ben Bulben tour, and the unforgettable wonderful Shamanic Journey with which we ended the tour:

‘Hope you’re doing well. Just wanted to say thank you once again for the afternoon with Ben Bulben. As you know, we covered a lot of country in Ireland and Northern Ireland last week, but the journey with you was by far the stand out from the trip. We enjoyed not only your historical knowledge of the area, but your energy focus and guided journey as well. It was a truly spiritual experience for us both.’

J S Arkansas, USA

See my Blog Post about ‘Thin Places’ in Ireland, of which Ben Bulben is most certainly one. Thin places are places of energy. A place where the veil between this world and the eternal world is thin. A ‘thin place’, is where one can walk in two worlds – the worlds are fused together, knitted loosely where the differences can be discerned or tightly where the two worlds become one:

​​Aughris Head, Manannan and the Four Sacred Weapons of the Tuatha De Danaan

Visit 8

 
Aughris Head and The Four Sacred Weapons of the Tuatha De Danaan
OR
Journey: Meet Manannan God of the Sea.

Aughris Head is a most utterly spectacular Atlantic beach on the Coast of County Sligo, looking on to sublime views of Ben Bulben Mountain. We offer two tour options at Aughris Head: Tour 1: Vision Journey centering on the Four Sacred Weapons of the Tuatha De Danaan, or Tour 2: A vision ride in the Boat of Manannan, and more.

Tour 1’s centrepiece is that we do vision re-enactment of the Four Sacred Weapons of the Tuath De Danaan being brought to Ireland at the time the People of the Goddess Danu returned near here to restore Ireland to the Purity that the Gods had envisioned at the time of the creation of the Earth. This was magic of the four elements that the Tuatha learned during their long voyaging of exile from Ireland, from the four Temples where they acquired these powers.
​The four sacred weapons (jewels) are: The Stone of Fal that shrieks when the rightful King of Ireland puts his foot on it. It teaches us about materiality and responsibility, and as the weapon of the North, also encompasses the deep magic of the rocks and the Cailleach, and we work also with Midir. The Spear of Llugh, the weapon of the South, is a lightning hot Spear of the Fire of inspiration, power and fire, and we work with Llugh too. The Sword of Nuada, the weapon of the East, embodies the element of Air, and divine powers of Discrimination, learning, writing and recording of knowledge and the mysteries. And the Cauldron of The Dagda, embodies the element of Water and the far reaches of the West, and is the Plenty and life-renewal that the Dagda Good God ever offers, and we make contact with the magic of ebb and flow and dream vision that is the sea.
There’s also lovely meals at the Beach Bar at the top of the bay!

Tour 2 is vision work with Manannan, the Ancient Irish God of the Sea. Manannan is the Lord of the vast Ocean of our unconscious and of the collective unconscious. He calls us to travel beyond the shores of our conscious self, to lands of magic, healing and renewal. We may have to negotiate the mists and dangers of the mind. Our heart must be pure, our quest noble. Manannan is our guide.
The ancient Irish Druid cosmology was one of Land, Sea and Sky. The realm of Manannan is the Sea. Do vision Journey to Meet Manannan. Travel in his magical boat Scuabtuinne the Wave Sweeper. Hold the sword, Fragarach, The Answerer, that can cut through any armour, the sword where no one could ever tell a lie if it was held against one’s throat. Wield the spear called Ctann Buide (Yellow Tree); and wear the breastplate which no weapon could pierce. Manannan is the ultimate shape-shifter. He can also morph into the trickster, the churl in the drab coat.

​And there’s also lovely meals at the Beach Bar at the top of the bay!

​​Carrowmore Megalithic Cemetery

Visit 9

In this Tour 9, we attune to the very different energies of some of the tombs.

We investigate a portal, and we do geomantic vision work with the landscape basisn the cemetery is set in.

​This is very special work – not to be missed!

I filmed this video about Pluto Mythic Keys in Listoghil tomb in the Carrowmore Cemetery.

What’s So Special About our Tours?

In addition to visiting utterly beautiful ancient sacred sites of the West of Ireland, all in settings of utterly superb ancient beauty and exalted places of land, sea and skies, these visits also include vision journeys to meet the Gods and Goddesses of the ancient Irish, and in some cases, also, to work with earth energies: rock energies, portals and geomantic work – and having the poetry of W B Yeats read to you as well.

​Sligo and adjoining counties are places of incredible wild beauty, exalted skies, beautiful mountains, forests and lakes, clean air and waters – and Ireland’s most ancient Sacred Sites.

The area includes four-thousand-year old Megaliths built by Ireland’s first farmers.

And the area is also rich with many sites of The Tuatha De Danaan, the people of Goddess Danu, the Gods and Goddesses of the Ancient Irish, who arrived here in the Iron Age.

It was in this area that the two great battles of the Tuatha De Danaan were fought: the first and second Battles of Moytura.

Here, the Tuatha De Danaan, the people of Ancient Ireland in the Iron Age, had a divine mission to restore Ireland to restore the purity the Gods intended for it, and to undo the damage and exploitation done by the dark and twisted Formorians.

And Sligo is also W B Yeats county – Ireland’s greatest poet. It was here that he grew up. It was here that he, and others, opened the door a hundred years ago in his poetry, to the divine beings of the Tuatha De Danaan, to the Sidhe. Some of Humanity is ready to hear their message again.
