    Tours August 2021

    Savour the last month of summer with an extraordinary August tour in the dazzling Irish countryside. Choose from hiking the amazing landscapes of Ireland, ride through classic cycling routes or mix some sea kayaking with hiking along stunning coastal routes. Explore the Ring of Kerry, scale the Connemara mountains, follow in the footsteps of St Patrick, visit a location where many Star Wars scenes were filmed and more all in August!

    Summer in Ireland is the island’s most popular time to visit. Days are long – during the Summer Solstice (the 21st of June), expect up to 17.5 hour of daylight! The weather is mild, with temperatures usually between 15-21°C (60-70°F), there are any number of summer festivals and events on, and the island is bustling with life.

    As always, you can make any of our small group tours private for you and your group. You can also travel on one of our Self GuidedTailor MadePrivate Departures, or Family itineraries year-round.

    We had the pleasure and good fortune to have both Donncha and Louise on our trip. Louise was amazing and while I am sure she is treasured in the office- she would be a fantastic guide! Louise went above and beyond on our trip- ensuring all hikers were enjoying their Wilderness Ireland experience. I cannot express enough my gratitude for her help pre-trip and during the trip! Many thanks to both Louise and Donncha for their generosity of knowledge, culture and spirit on this trip.
