**Podcast** Road Trip Through Medieval Ireland.

A few weeks ago I hit the road with a recorder taking in some of the best medieval sites in Ireland. The show takes in 1000 years of Irish history in one day-trip. Starting in around the year 600 in the monastery Glendalough at sunrise before driving through the Wicklow mountains to Kilkenny, I visited many places mentioned in the podcast. The trip finished off in the 16th century in a spot off the beaten track, but a real forgotten gem.

You can join me on a similar trip on Saturday June 6th (2015). Mail booking@Irishhistorytours.ie to book your spot on what will be a unique trip.
