In the last month of traditional summer, enjoy August’s end-of-summer flurry of activity from festivals and events to outdoor activities and sunny summer evenings at the beach.
With autumn soon to be calling, the golden light of August is particularly enjoyable with a glass of Guinness in hand and Ireland’s unique culture on full display. Before the autumnal harvest season, take advantage of August’s long evenings, seasonal festivals, and final wisps of summer weather.
August is a great time of year for outdoor enthusiasts looking to balance plenty of daylight hours, a mild climate, summer events, and the end of the busy season.
Join us as we explore the spots only the locals know, discovering the best wild corners that Ireland has to offer. See below for our August tours in Ireland.
