    Tours October 2022

    Discover Ireland in Autumn – October trips offer the chance to savour stunning landscapes to yourself, bask in the beautiful fall colours and learn about the traditions surrounding the spooky Irish festival of Samhain, popularly known as Halloween.

    With the magic of Samhain whispering in the wind, Ireland has a mystical quality to it come October.

    Reds and golds in falling leaves match the sunsets now that autumn is truly here, and you won’t want to miss a moment of it. The days may be shorter, but they’re perfect for hiking and cycling through temperate woodland before sweeping down to the coast to take in all that Ireland has to offer. With the original equinox on everyone’s mind, fall into a culture rich with stories and ready to embrace you by the hearth.
