Queen Medb Conference

Rathcroghan Visitor Centre hosts its annual Queen Medb Winter Conference in the surrounds of the Ancient Royal Complex of Cruachan, in order to create a forum for interested communities and individuals to access, discuss and engage with the unique environment that nature and our predecessors have left us with.

We invite you to join us here at Cruachan Aí, Connacht’s Royal Capital and the home of the Warrior Queen Medb herself, where this year our theme will be to explore the culture and spirituality of ancient Ireland and it’s many connections to the wider European World.

Our Conference promotes a unique blend of history, folklore and wellness in an area where people have both thrived and survived over thousands of years.
