About Us; Sciuird Archaeological Tours

Sciuird is the Irish language word for ‘A Journey’.

Tír gan teanga is ea tír gan anam.
A country without its language is a country without a soul

We live and work on the peninsula where the Irish Language (Gaeilge) is still spoken. For us, Irish is a language worth preserving and promoting. We encourage visitors to learn a little about this central part of our heritage.There are roughly 7,000 languages spoken in just under 200 countries worldwide. Irish is one of the languages under pressure for its very survival. Approximately 9 languages cease to be spoken each year, we do not want Irish to become a dead language. 

Take a little lime to learn a little and use it when visiting the Dingle Peninsula.
