Bealtaine at the Song House

April 30

Bealtaine, or Beltane, is the Gaelic May Day feast that marks the transition of the sprouts of Spring in to the blossom of Summer.

We will host a warm and open space for you to rest into this time of year, with shared wisdom, song and gently guided and experiential activities where we can share and dream together for this fertile time.

Corncrakes, Biodiversity & Birdsong

May 21 - May 24
TBC

A weekend dedicated to Birds & Biodiversity - especially the Corncrake

With Aengus Kennedy

This weekend is inspired by The Corncrake. Parts of Donegal, particularly the offshore islands of Inishboffin and Tory, are one of the fewest habitable landscapes left for what was once a bountiful bird across the entire Island of Ireland. As such, the decline in the Corncrake population has seen it added as a red listed breed. However, there is much being done to ensure the protection of this Brid, with conservation and habitat management initiatives by Birdwatch Ireland for example, Corncrake Conservation - BirdWatch Ireland amongst much more.

Tending the Wild – An immersive wild food and medicine journey on the Wild Atlantic way

June 15 - June 20
Foraging break in Donegal

With Lucy O’Hagan

Follow the path of your ancestors and learn how to gather and process wild foods and medicines from coast to forest, river to field and all the hedgerows along the edges.

Join ethnobotanist and ancestral skills teacher Lucy O’Hagan on this 5 day journey to explore our inner and outer nature. We will rewild our minds and bodies as we explore a new environment from which to harvest nature’s bounty each day. You will learn how to safely identify and sustainably forage from a range of plants, trees, fungi, seaweed & lichens. Autumn is perhaps one of the most exciting times to be a forager. The abundance is overwhelming as the fruits of the year ripen, the nuts fall to the forest floor, the roots swell with medicine and the fungi burst through the carpeted woodland. Our ancestors surely would have filled their stores in preparation for the long wir ahead. So too you will fill your basket and process plants into salve, syrup, vinegar and pickles to take away with you.
