The History, the myths, The Legends

From the comfort of your own home, take a trip to the Emerald Isle. Learn about the fascinating myths, legends and history of this famed island. Mark will take you through time and history, telling funny and scary stories of the islands past. Giants carved the coastlines, fairies dwell deep in the forests, and luck flows through every landscape- Ireland is full of great stories and your guide will share his favorites, that are sure to have you sitting in disbelief or rolling on the floor laughing.

The City of Howth

Your guide comes from the city of Howth, which is less than an hour from Dublin and right on the water. He will first go into detail about his town and what typical Irish life is like. You will see life in an Irish Village and Ireland through the eyes of a local, his camera and his Dog. This experience will let you live, feel and breath the real Ireland as though you were a native.

During the experience, we will move around the Historic Village of Howth using 360 degree HD videos and create real magic through insights, stories and Myths and Legends you have come to associate with the emerald isle.

The Journey

During the experience, We start our journey through time, hearing tales of Viking and Norman invasions and learning about the history of the 700-year-old castle. You will be immersed in the culture as we delve into all things Irish- Funerals ( The Wake), the significance of the shamrock, our love of potatoes, rebellions and much more!

This is a fully interactive experience, with loads of great views, Culture and Irish Craic ( the legal stuff lol)
