Summer Solstice

Summer Solstice

Since prehistory, the Summer Solstice has been seen as a significant time of year, being marked by rituals and gatherings. The Hill of Uisneach, with its elevation and clear views of over more than twenty counties, was and still remains the perfect landscape to welcome the Solstice and the warmth it brings.

Join us on the Summer Solstice here on the Hill, for an evening of storytelling and reflection. Listen to our bards tell the stories of our ancestors. Become one with this sacred landscape as it comes alive when we weave our way through the myths, legends and local lore as they breathe life back into the past.

Immerse yourself in this sacred landscape, where time will stand still and connections made.

To celebrate the Summer Solstice this year we are holding a gathering on Wednesday, 21st June starting at 19:45 from the carpark and finishing up a little after 22:00.
