By the time that autumn rolls around, Ireland is a quieter place. School’s back in session, the days are getting shorter, and landscapes become alive with reds and golds. The days are a little shorter, and the temperatures are lower than in summer, but the beautiful atmospheric setting and stunning sunsets more than make up for slightly shorter days. October is a special month in Ireland – the end of the month during the autumnal equinox is the festival of Samhain, more popularly known as Halloween, and an important time of the year on Ireland’s calendar of ancient traditions.
