    Tours August 2022

    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.

    Our holidays reviewed
    in your own words

    This was a really fun trip! The route was interesting, scenic, challenging enough and the choice of roads (appropriate for biking) was excellent. We loved the winding country lanes, stone walls and hedgerows, grand vistas, awesome descents and even the super-steep climbs. With so much to see along the way each day, we'd like to have been able to slow time down to better soak it all in. Our guides, Ben and Simon, were true professionals. They made our lives carefree so we could just ENJOY!
