At Wilderness Ireland, we’ll be sure to take you on the road less travelled to some of Ireland’s coolest places in the height of summer. Counties Sligo, Donegal, Mayo, Cork, Galway, Limerick… the list is exhaustive! Going for a hike in Ireland in August gives great rewards – the temperatures are at their highest, which means you should get the longest days. August is a great month for a mid-hike picnic, or an evening by the sea with a chilled pint to cool off after a solid day of hiking. Tasting Ireland’s seafood has never seemed fresher, and the sound of the waves is refreshing.
Do keep in mind though that this is Ireland, and temperatures won’t be balmy – be prepared with, solid hiking boots and plenty of layers! If you need a little more help deciding what to wear, see our guide for more information!
Let’s go for a walk!
