1h 10min
A one-hour accompanied journey below the earth with Irelands Last Leprechaun Whisperer. Know locally as ‘McCoillte’ Kevin Woods is Ireland’s last Leprechaun Whisperer. In 1989 a leprechaun suit, bones, and gold coins were found on Carlingford mountain in Co Louth Ireland. No was was more sceptical than the Whisperer and he organized a leprechaun hunt that year to try and catch one but none were found. In 2002 he found the gold coins in a stone wall on Ghan Road which enabled him to communicate with “Carraig” the elder of the 236 surviving leprechauns. By 2009 they were afforded protection by the E.U.under the European Habitats Directive. In 2010 he published his first book “The Last Leprechauns of Ireland” based on their lives.No 1 on Trip advisor "on things to do" in Carlingford. No 3 on Trip Advisor "on things to do" in Louth.
