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 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.
Registration is now open for this years conference which will take place on Saturday 23rd November 2019. For details of this years or previous conferences and to register please click on the link below.
