Why You Should Hike in Ireland in May 2020

Explore the Beauty of Ireland in Spring by Venturing on a May Hiking Tour. Check out a List of our Hiking Holidays Below! Spring is certainly in the air in May. New blooms blanket the soft, green earth. Gentle breezes waft fresh air across the hills, replacing the urban din of cities and suburbs. Sheep graze in the fields with new lambs bleating by their sides. Mother Earth’s cologne smells like a bouquet of wildflowers. Even the rain is lovely – a refreshing soft, fresh mist as you hike through Ireland’s wilderness. All great reasons to hike in Ireland in May!

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.
