    Tours in April 2024

    Enjoy the beauty of Ireland during the spring season on one of our unforgettable small group guided tours. April is the perfect time of year to see new lambs, the arrival of the puffins, and plenty of wildflowers before the summer bustle.


    Visit Ireland in April 2024

    In April, the chilly winter season is over and the days are getting longer, and it’s time to enjoy the green season ahead. Visit Ireland in April to get ahead of summer visitors and explore an island waking up to new life. 

    Spring flowers are peeking through, adorable fluffy lambs are bouncing around the fields and misty mornings offer some of the most dramatic sunrises (and later sunsets) of the year. Rainbows abound – April is one of the best times of year to admire these incredible phenomena.

    Enjoy Ireland’s spring breeze – flowing straight off the Atlantic Ocean, Ireland’s air is some of the freshest in Europe. Better yet, as an early bird travelling to Ireland in spring means you’ll get to visit the Emerald Isle before summer crowds arrive.

    View our April departures below to find your perfect spring adventure in Ireland.

    Wilderness Ireland and your sister company Wilderness Scotland with whom I had a tour about six years ago are both outstanding cycle tour companies and I always recommend them to friends who ask for my advice about cycle touring.
