A Mythical Voyage (Gorey)

Seal Rescue Ireland

Engage in a mythical voyage of discovery learning about Ireland’s iconic native seal species with a pinch of our marine folklore thrown in!

The evening will begin with an educational talk discussing our work at Seal Rescue Ireland, providing information on our native seal species, their ecology, biology, our conservation work and what everyone can do help protect these majestic animals. Afterwards our guests will be taken to a guided tour of our center and the opportunity to observe our patients in our rehabilitation kennels and pools. We will be talking about each of the seals rescue stories, as well as, telling the story of their namesakes. Our rescued seal pups are named after Irish Myths and Legends this year! For the second half of the experience, we will have a storytelling session focused on some of Irelands earliest mythological tales in which seals are featured.

We hope to offer you a unique learning experience about one of our iconic native species and delve into our marine folklore, heritage and culture.
