What is the new service?

Tuatha is a new service by Abarta Heritage, Ireland’s leading experts on community heritage and sustainable tourism. We have created a new member’s service, that helps people to discover not only the best places to visit in Ireland, but to gain a deeper sense of place and more memorable experience.

Ireland is full of incredible places to explore, but just visiting is only half the experience. We believe that you can enjoy a much more meaningful and rewarding experience by understanding the stories of the landscapes, places and people. Our team of archaeologists, tourism experts and researchers are here to help you to dig deeper, to enrich your experience with a sense of place, to help you to understand the who, what, why and how of Ireland’s heritage.

As Tuatha develops we will offer exclusive content packed with insights and practical advice, expertly-crafted itineraries to ensure you won’t miss a thing, insightful and fun online courses on Irish archaeology and history, and the opportunity to connect with like-minded people who love Ireland and who are curious and eager to explore. The Tuatha is a warm and generous place, where you can feel welcome and appreciated as you exchange your tips, ideas and experiences with the group.

What does Tuatha mean?

The name Tuatha is a plural of the Irish word tuath it essentially means ‘peoples’ or ‘tribe’. The tuath was the principle way that early Irish society was structured. It is believed that there were approximately 150 tuatha in Ireland in the early medieval period, with each tuath consisting of approximately 3,000 people. The term is often equated with ‘kingdom’, but it has a deeper meaning, tuath is a term that encompasses both the people and the land. Tuath also has another use in Modern Irish in the expression faoin tuath ‘in the countryside’. This dual-aspect covering both community and place felt like the perfect term for what we want to build – a tribe of people from all over the world who share an abiding passion and love for discovering the landscapes and stories of Ireland.
