Ireland in spring is a magical place. From Easter to fresh flowers to new lambs, enjoy visiting the Emerald Isle in Ireland’s most beautiful season!
Ireland may be a small island but the country is rich with culture, history and tradition. Ireland has long held tight to its religious convictions and traditions as an important part of their cultural identity. But the nation also has a long history of Celtic heritage. The island was pagan – Celtic with Viking influences – until St Patrick brought Christianity in the 5th century, and traditions started to get intermixed.
It is perhaps this intriguing mix of traditions that entices people to travel Ireland in spring and Easter.
Spring is the perfect time to travel Ireland: tourist crowds will be thinner, accommodations or attractions that closed for winter will have just reopened, flowers are starting to blossom, new lambs are bleating in the fields, and the Irish are all outside happily celebrating the end of winter and the beginning of spring.
And because Ireland is the westernmost part of Europe (barring faraway Iceland), it has some of the freshest air throughout Europe – pure and untouched by pollution.
