    Hiking and Biking Tours in Connemara in August

    Described by Oscar Wilde as “a savage beauty,” west Ireland’s Connemara region has been delighting and enchanting visitors for centuries. But the very best way to experience this ‘savage beauty’ is via your own two feet – hiking and biking tours in Connemara in August.

    Though an Irish summer is quite different from what most people consider ‘summer,’ August is still one of the warmest months, with (typically) lower rainfall. August is also a great month for festivals, cultural events, outdoor markets, having picnics or taking lunch on a (hopefully) sunny terrace.

    Biking in Connemara


    Taste freshly-caught seafood paired with a cold beer from a local brewery after a long day adventuring through the wilds of Connemara! Though the region is beautiful any time or way you visit it, to really make the best of Connemara in the summer, consider hiking and biking tours in Connemara in August.

    Though August is a popular month, at Wilderness Ireland, we’ll take you off the beaten path to discover hidden Ireland, far off the typical tourist track.

    Group size good, much easier getting around, able to use the smaller van. I now appreciate a part of Ireland unknown to me previously. The accommodation was centrally located which was excellent for the evenings. A well thought out itinerary with enough activity to fill the day. Highly recommended. We hope to participate in another WI trip in the near future. Having mild weather added to the enjoyment!
