As for Actaeon, he was a hunter who loved to hunt deer in his forest home, but one day while out hunting he accidentally came upon Artemis bathing nude in her pool. Enraged that she would be caught undressed by him as well as embarrassed at being seen naked herself (as women are not allowed to go on hunts or view themselves nude), Artemis turned Actaeon into a stag and had her dogs tear him apart.
As for Celtic Otherworlds, they were only accessible through shamans or druids that could "walk between worlds".
