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.
