    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.

    in your own words

    I have already raved about Wilderness Ireland to people I met my last few days in Ireland, to people on the planes home, to friends here at home. The only cumbersome moment was having our lunch in a plastic container that didn't fully seal so there was some leakage into the backpack....how's that for a privileged complaint? Seriously, I was well aware I had stumbled on (I'm still not sure how I discovered Wilderness Ireland....I think an email...) an experience I would forever cherish. I'm still processing. I know travel enhances us but this trip did so in ways I could not have imagined. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
