What better time to visit Ireland than in May? Spring is in full bloom. The crowds are few, so by day, you’ll have the vast landscapes to yourself and by night, you’ll settle yourself in a cosy Irish pub, mingling with the locals. During May, there’ll be less traffic, less wait time for a pint, and plenty of flowers covering the hillsides!
This is particularly good weather for a hike in Ireland in May: not too hot and not too cool. Pull-on a pair of hiking boots and get walking because the Irish spring is meant to be spent in the great outdoors!
See below for the best way to hike in Ireland in May.
