The early/Medieval Irish seemed to be intrigued with stories of Fabulous voyages, such as that of Bran Mac Febal, for there are a whole host of such tales threading their way through Irish folklore; whether of the pagan flavor or Christian, it seems, the Celts certainly had a very vivid--and in some cases, very wild--view of what the Otherworld might be like. On the whole, they tended to see it as an extention of this world; but on the other hand, they envisioned it to be a magical place populated with the faefolk, gods, strange animals and other such superhuman beings. For your enjoyment, I've scrounged up a few of these interesting tales. Enjoy!
