Immerse yourself in Bard Summer School, which takes place from 4-8 July on Clare Island. Ireland’s legacy of myth and legend lives on in its storytelling, art, culture and heritage, and now it is being refreshed by Bard Mythologies for a new audience. Bard Mythologies celebrates Ireland’s literary heritage by inviting fans to Clare Island to tell stories, sing songs and ponder on poems. Of course, there will be feasting, tours and learning as well. The summer school will introduce you to some Irish myths which you will delve deeper into, learning the history, the heritage and, of course, just how to make a showstopper of it when you’re called upon to retell it.

Tickets cost €295. For further details, contact 085-7514332 or email
