Times are a changin’
As the years go on, we as Irish people continue to connect to our Celtic and pre-Celtic roots. This is especially true at the traditionally big “feast days” that would typically be associated with ushering in a new season, such as Imbolc and Bealtaine.
One such celebration that has reached the far corners of the world over is Halloween (originally an Irish thing, we tell anyone who’ll listen) also known in Irish and witchy circles as Samhain.
Samhain marks the Celtic New Year, the end of summer, and the end of the harvest season as well as the beginning of winter. At the end of October, the folks over at Inch Hideaway in conjunction with Danu Wellness Cork are hosting an action-packed afternoon of culture, history, music, and more to mark the occasion.
It’s all happening on Sunday, October 29th, 2023.
“Together we will honour all of our forms of expression that have been handed to us by our ancestral line and connect to these pillars of strength at a time when the liminal space is wide open,” said the Danu Wellness crew on Instagram.

“Come join us and the elements in song, spoken word, and ceremonial connection to make our way home together.”
The day starts off the day off with a dip and a sauna on Inch Beach at 2pm followed by a drum journey at 4pm and meditation before the sun sets. The evening begins with poetry and spoken word performances followed by music and songs around the fire with Eoin Jordan, Conor Rice and Karen Jordan until 9pm.
Tickets for the day are €55 per person and children go free. The beach sauna session is included and food will be available from Captain’s Catch all day. To book your spot call 087 7453925.
