Scots / Irish Geneology Workshop

Learn about your Irish family name, its origins, your family crests, Scots/Irish links and research tools you can use to continue your search when you leave.

Our experts will take the family names which have Irish links and crests of the group and use their knowledge, their grasp of history and the Gaeilge language to help you find out more about your name and its connection to our land. This immersive and interactive experience is a fantastic way for visitors to strengthen their bond with the land they are travelling through.

The workshop includes homemade tea/coffee and scones and can last for 1-2hrs, depending on what suits your group.

Traditional Craft Workshop

Our traditional crafts workshop takes you back in time to learn about and try for out for yourself, our ancient crafts of turf cutting, St Brigid’s cross making and blacksmithing. Head to the bog with Danny McKinley to cut turf, or peat as it is commonly known, using the old peat spade and barrow.

Hear the stories of one of our patron saints, St Brigid, and learn how to weave a St Brigid’s cross using reads and rushes that you can take home. Marvel as the centre’s blacksmith puts shoes on our ancient breed of horse, just like our ancestors have done for generations and if you’re lucky, you may get a lucky Irish horse shoe to help you on your way.

Tea/Coffee and homemade scones are included in the price and the workshop can last for 1-2hrs, depending on what suits your group.
