Heritage workshops and tours


At Creative Ardagh we are passionate about our history and heritage and offer a range of creative options to groups and individuals wanting to explore it in depth with us.

We invite you to:
  • Delve into the mythology of Ancient Ireland with our Midir and Etain Felting workshop; 
  • Explore Life in an Iron Age Fort with King Máine of the Back of the Hill one of many High Kings and Heroes of the past; 
  • Follow in the footsteps of the saints and scholars of Sacred Ireland as you learn about St. Mel, St. Patrick and St. Brigid in Ardagh in the Clay Symbols workshop or 
  • Experience the legacy of the Big House and Hard Times as you join us on a Sketching Tour of the model estate village of Ardagh.
We also offer Scéalta Beo (Living Stories) a storytelling and drama workshop based more generally on the mythology connected with County Longford.
