Some frequently asked questions (if your query isn’t here, please do get in touch and let us know):

Can’t I get a lot of this information for free? What makes Tuatha different to googling or digging into Wikipedia?2023-01-11T09:25:27+00:00

You can certainly get some information on particular places of interest that way, and while some of that is good, there’s unfortunately quite a lot of bad information too. Often copied and pasted from other sources, or compiled by people who have never visited the sites (or in some cases, people who have never even been to Ireland!) 

This means you can’t always trust that you have the right story, or that you even have permission to visit a monument. Or you might miss little hidden features, or another great site that happens to be just down the road if only you knew. Trying to do it all through Google means you have to dig through a lot of stuff to find reliable information.

We are experienced archaeologists and sustainable tourism experts, trusted by national bodies and local authorities all around Ireland. You can rely on our information. In our work for Abarta Heritage we’ve worked with communities across the island, and produced over 50+ audio guides, as well as countless heritage and sustainable tourism audits, and numerous public archaeology projects. Neil has also written acclaimed guidebooks for the Wild Atlantic Way and Ireland’s Ancient East, as well as hosting the popular Amplify Archaeology Podcast.

Simply put, we live and breathe researching and sharing Ireland’s heritage. You could not be in safer hands.

Why does it cost €120 to join for a year or €25 for a month, where does the money go?2023-01-11T09:21:54+00:00

A membership with Tuatha contributes meaningful support of the Irish heritage industry. We’re a small self-funded company based in Clonmel, Tipperary. By choosing to join Tuatha, you contribute to the wages of our in-house team of archaeologists, heritage professionals and historians, allowing us to pursue valuable research in their fields. This research is then returned to you in expertly-crafted articles, courses, itineraries and webinars, available to all our members.

You will also help support the many researchers, heritage professionals and enthusiasts who love sharing their expertise and passions. When we engage external experts and professionals for talks and tours, we believe in paying them fairly for the time and knowledge they give us.

And by joining it allows us invest even more in running tours and events for members, and to greater engage with the public. We believe Ireland’s incredible heritage belongs to everyone, and that all communities on this island have valuable stories to tell.

What happens if I join and I find it isn’t for me? Is it easy to cancel?2023-01-11T09:15:11+00:00

No problem! If you join and find the membership isn’t for you then you can cancel easily. Monthly members get a 7 day cancellation window, and our annual subscribers get 30 days to change your mind. So if it’s not for you, just let us know and we’ll refund your money with no fuss at all. We want our members to feel like they have made the right decision, both when they first sign up and for the duration of their time with us.

You can cancel your subscription at any time during your membership so it won’t auto-renew, though if you are outside of the money back guarantee window then the refund does not apply.

If I’m a monthly member do I get the same access as an annual membership?2023-01-24T12:33:00+00:00

Yes, our Monthly Members enjoy full access to all our articles, itineraries, courses and the full back catalogue of all our Tuatha Talks just like our Full Members. The only difference is that a monthly membership expires after 30 days and does not automatically renew. So it’s ideal if you’re looking for a short term bit of help with holiday planning, or if you’d like to dip your toe into Tuatha before you commit to an annual option (monthly members receive a discount if they wish to upgrade to become a Full Member).

Is this only for people who have studied Irish archaeology?2023-01-11T09:15:47+00:00

No, not at all! We love helping to connect people to the stories of Ireland. We have a beginners course in Irish archaeology available right now, and we’ll be adding lots of courses as we go. For people already well-versed in Irish archaeology, there are our regular Tuatha Talks featuring some of Ireland’s leading experts on different aspects of archaeology and heritage – from the latest discoveries of Medieval Dublin to the history of Witchcraft in Ireland and more! Our key passion is to connect people to the story of Ireland so they can enjoy more meaningful visits or days out.

So is Tuatha only for tourists?2023-01-11T09:16:11+00:00

No, Tuatha offers so much for people living here in Ireland too. Our itineraries and site posts help you to have great breaks and day trips. And our online courses will help you on your journey to gaining a deeper and more meaningful sense of place. Visiting the wonderful wealth of heritage sites becomes so much more memorable when you know the story behind why that particular site was built there, or the dramatic tales associated with our ancient forts or medieval castles. Ireland is a truly wonderful country, and we want you to explore the best of it.

Is Tuatha only for people living in Ireland, will I get good value if I can’t visit right now?2023-01-11T09:16:34+00:00

The aim of Tuatha is to help you to develop a deeper connection with the stories and landscapes of Ireland. That goes for whether you are actually able to visit the sites or not. We know that there are so many people around the world that are unable to visit Ireland or people who may find it difficult to access some of the more remote or challenging sites, and we want to help them too. So we have immersive videos, lots of stories as well as the courses, to help people feel like they can build those connections. If you are holiday planning from overseas we can really help you too, with our exclusive itineraries and articles that help you to explore the best of Ireland on your own terms.
