The Irish Walk: the first guided pilgrimage

By on 5 August 2017

Available in: itItaliano

I know, for a long time I did not write. These months have been a bit demanding. In the meantime, I changed two cities, changed my “profession” and arrived in Milan… I’m now working to become a real Travel Designer. I have the title, I miss the job, which I’m learning these months at a Tour Operator.

A Camino de Santiago in Ireland?

Anyway, I’m here because my beloved Ireland has formalized its Walk! Well, in the wake of the Santiago Way, recently there are appearing so many new. For example, my land, Sicily, is also rediscovering and re-evaluating the roads that pilgrims once traveled.

And we, unhappy travelers, can not help but think about it.

The Heritage Week

If you have not already done so tickets for your vacation and your feet ask to make the road, book the first flight to Dublin! From August 19 to 26, there will be the “Heritage Week” to inaugurate pilgrimage passports on Irish soil. Just so, now in Ireland, there will be the credential attesting to the pilgrimage.

It is 124 km of path driven by the Pilgrim Paths Ireland association along the five most important routes:

  • Tochar Phadraig, Co Mayo (30 km; 10+ Hours)
  • St Kevin’s Way (30 km; 7 Hours)
  • Cosán na Naomh, Co Kerry (18 km; 4-5 Hours)
  • St Finbarr’s Pilgrim Path, Co. Cork (37 km; 2 days)
  • Cnoc na dTobar, Co Kerry (9 km; 3.5 hours)

All the tracks have finally been reported, and they can be run either individually or for those who want to be accompanied by a guide.

Pilgrim’s passport

The passport can be purchased at all locations near the walk (also at St. James Church in Dublin) at a cost of 5 €. As in the most famous Spanish walk you will collect stamps (Selli in Spanish) but here to get the pilgrimage certificate at Ballintubber Abbey in Claremorris, Co. Mayo, you will have to complete all five trails.

  • Sitges, home for American colonizers? 🤠
-
While wandering around the narrow alleys of Sitges I found out a beautiful story beyond the different facade of this pretty little town's houses.
-
#sitges was a place to settle down for brave men who went to America finding for fortune and who found it. 🤑
When they came back home in Spain they started to build their amazing houses here to show all their richness in confront of the city of Barcelona. 
And still now it's possible to see the difference between the rich and the poor... Let's start with the first ones and this beautiful house.

  • How you do you feel when you're home?
I can go wherever in the world but home is still the place I know better thank anything else. Every street, house, park or beach, every story behind them and the people That made this place so peculiar. I love to hear stories from old people that explain how this place was alike years ago and how has arrived today. Every time I add a little peace on my puzzle. And you?
