Beyond These Shores is a progressive rock album by Iona. Released in 1993. Beyond These Shores is largely based on the story of St. Brendan's voyage. Brendan and a company of monks sailed from Ireland in a leather and wood boat in the sixth century to 'the promised land' which many[who?] believe to be America.

This time the majority of the recording was at:

  • The Cutting Rooms, Manchester - (Engineer Nigel Palmer)

with only additional work done at

  • Moles Studio, Bath
  • St. Anne's Church, Manchester - (recording of the Piano)

The recording was remastered for the 2002 release The River Flows: Anthology and later re-released on Open Sky Records as a standalone album.
