Ireland’s seasons

Lough Inagh, Connemara, County Galway

As the seasons inevitably change, so too does the character of the vibrant cities, picturesque villages and rural landscapes on the island of Ireland. From rich autumnal hues of orange and red, to the vibrant emeralds visible during summer season, the island of Ireland is flush with a pallet of glorious colours. Come and be astounded by the beauty of our national parks and gardens during spring, or chase the Northern Lights along the Wild Atlantic Way on a clear and crisp winter’s night. And, you’ll love our long summer nights that seem to last forever on an island where the seasons ebb and flow – always beautiful, never tame.
