    Tours May 2022

    Celebrate the stunning spring month of May by exploring the majestic scenery of Ireland on one of our May Tours. From Connemara to Dingle to the Mountains of Mourne, May in Ireland is one the island’s most beautiful times to visit.

    The chilly winter season is over and the days are getting longer. Enjoy Ireland’s spring air – being straight off the Atlantic Ocean, Ireland’s air is some of the freshest air in Europe. Spring flowers are peaking 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. Better yet, as an early bird coming to Ireland in spring means you’ll get to visit the Emerald Isle before summer crowds arrive.

    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 Guided, Tailor 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!
