THE SPIRIT OF CLARE ISLAND EXPERIENCE

The Spirit of Clare Island Experience is a one day immersive visitor journey through Clare Island’s history and mythology that takes place every Sunday from June to September 2021. Participants in the experience will depart Clare Island with an exclusive presentation bottle of Clare Island Single Malt Spirit Drink in its own custom designed sea chest. The privilege of ownership will be exclusively available to those who sign up for the Captain’s Experience. Places are limited.

The Silver Keel Coin, presented as part of this experience will provide access to a voyage of discovery on Clare Island in the Wild Atlantic for clues to unanswered questions about our early history and the ‘spirit of the sea’. You will partake in the ‘first of its kind’ immersive experience of myths, legends, history, Island culture and Island seafood that culminates with a tasting of our unique sea borne spirit.

The Spirit Of Clare Island Experience is your personal journey into the Wild Atlantic. Through myths, storytelling, historical landscapes and island culture, we will guide you through a journey of discovery that may lead you to unlock the secret code.
