Journey on a magical Quest…

The mythical land of Tír na nÓg is best known in Irish mythology from the tale of Oisín and Niamh. Known as the Celtic Otherworld, Tír na nÓg is a land reached by traversing across the sea. No inhabitant of the realm grows old, life is joyful, and beauty is everlasting.

Niamh met Oisín in Ireland, and it was a tale of true love. The two set out together and ventured across the waters to Tír na nÓg, where they spent three wonderful years together. However, the good times were not to last forever as Oisín got homesick and decided to travel back to Ireland. Alas, he soon found that time moves differently in Tír na nÓg, and although just three years had passed for him, in Ireland, 300 years had gone by.

There are no certain dates for our ancient Irish myths and legends. They were written by Christian Monks, many moons after they heard the fireside tales of how our ancestors lived their heroic lives. However, according to our humble Bard, their epic adventures began fado, fado in Éireann, a long long time ago in Ireland. Let us take you on a wild adventure into the mists of their time…

Emerald Park recognises and acknowledges our own interpretation of this story throughout Tír na nÓg. Some elements may stray from more well-known written resources.
