Get away from the busyness of life for this exciting weekend combining singing and walking on the Wild Atlantic Way with Seamus Doohan and Candy Verney.

Start the morning with an hour of wonderful singing: – rounds, work songs, songs we can sing as we walk. All taught by ear, accessible to all. Then put on your walking boots and explore the mountains, valleys and beaches of North West Donegal with Seamus. As we walk, Seamus will regale us with fascinating stories from the history and mythology of the area, as well as showing us medicinal and food plants, traditionally used in times gone by.Discover as we uncover the layers of history in our landscape and learn about our rich Gaelic culture and heritage.

The North-west coast of Donegal is one of the undiscovered gems of Ireland. It possesses some of the most spectacular, unique and unspoilt scenery in the country, and is a veritable paradise for hill walkers.

Donegal has a long coastline with extraordinarily dramatic coastal scenery: sea-battered cliffs and sea stacks; jagged rock formations, picturesque peninsulas scattered with prehistoric remains, rugged headlands. Spectacular long sandy and often deserted beaches are bordered with sand dunes, still home to the very rare and shy corncrake, which if you’re lucky you can hear on an evening in June.
