Ready to go Gallivanting?


Welcome to the Cornerstone of Ireland’s Ancient East


My name is Lorraine, and I consider myself a wandering soul, someone who revels in stories, great food and drink, meeting new people and discovering new experiences.

I’m Irish, grew up here, and I love this little island deeply! I’ve travelled all over it, gallivanting and exploring for decades! Its hidden gems, its castles, museums and attractions and its incredible scenery.

And of all the places I’ve been to, Wexford captured my heart!

Here in this place, I found the best of the best. Romantic ruins, completely unique visitor attractions, gorgeous beaches, magical woodlands and the farms and food producers that feed the people of Ireland. Not to forget the most amazing true stories, ones that rival any modern film or book!


So consider me your driver, your guide, your concierge to experiences and most of all, your newest friend in Ireland!

  • Wandering around some of our best heritage sites with a professional and published storyteller as your guide.

  • Visiting the regions most ancient and sacred sites with a Celtic Witch or Shaman.

  • Visiting the farms and food producers that feed the people of Ireland

  • Or feasting like a Celt/Viking/Georgian/Medieval Knight at one of our Ireland’s Ancient Feasts
