Sláinte! How Many More Miles To Go?

  • 14 Mar 2018
  • 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
  • The Barn Owl Books & Gifts, in Alpine Village, 616 N. 3rd St.

If you’ve ever wanted to visit Ireland, drink a pint in a true Irish pub, or stay with Irish locals, this is the presentation for you! In the summer of 2015, Rebecca Havens paved the way, inspired by a 1-page story in Backpacker magazine. Rebecca’s trek included home stays in small villages, spending time with a genuine shillelagh stick carver, and exploring ancient ruins. In this presentation, Rebecca will share photos and experiences that shed light on her 80-mile trek through the Wicklow Mountains - and a short visit with some Vikings! Come learn about the Wicklow Way, how travel can be a catalyst for change, and experience the warmth of the Emerald Isle’s people. Coffee and Irish-inspired cupcakes will be served and a packing list, tips, and tools for the journey will be provided. The Barn Owl Books & Gifts will offer a 1-night only discount on the guidebook that Rebecca used for her journey. A not-to-be-missed evening for the soon-to-be trekker!
