Visitor Experience

Visitor Workshop Experience

Hitting the well known scenic spots in Ireland is a pleasant way to tour the country and you are guaranteed to get the photographs and tick off the bucket list but it only hits the surface, which seems a pity as the best of Ireland is often hidden in its deepest layers. Getting out of the cars and buses and venturing down the smaller roads will lead you into the heart of ‘Irishness’ where aspects of real life can be experienced, creating feelings and memories that can be drawn on for a lifetime. Irish Herbal Roots is passionate about providing a friendly, authentic experience to visitors – no shamrocks and no leprechauns.

Irish Herbal Roots can be hired for herb walks, workshops or a combination of both. A specific programme can be created that would best suit the needs of the group. Snacks or a picnic type lunch can be provided if requested. Events can also take place in close proximity to restaurants and hotels with suitable dining options and coach parking.

 

What a visitor can expect from a workshop experience:

  • To feel welcome and at home.
  • The event will be hosted by a fully qualified local Herbalist with many years experience.
  • Indoor events are colourful and interesting and many wild plants are brought into the room to be observed, smelled and even tasted.
  • Interaction from participants is welcome and encouraged
