The Together Project

CONNECTING GENERATIONS THROUGH CREATIVITY

Ignite your imagination and discover a dreamworld, a whole world of magic told by the Seanchaí – the bearer of Irish folklore. Embark on a journey set against the canvas of some of the greatest wordsmiths the country has ever seen.  There will be mystery, there will be murder, there will be love, there will be comedy and then there will be more magic.

No other part of Ireland has ever produced as many world-class writers and storytellers.  At Kerry Writers Museum, we celebrate their work and invite you to gaze through the windows of wonder to discover a wider and greater world.

Follow the hare and find the elephant in the classroom. Let the Seanchaí hypnotise you and don’t let the shy singer distract you.

Follow the hare and widen your world!
