1 Explore Ireland's gardens
Thanks to our temperate climate, fertile soil and a little bit of magic, the island of Ireland produces a surprising range of plants, flowers and trees. Spring and summer are glorious. But come in autumn and you'll be wowed by russet tones, while in winter, you'll find a stark beauty in the leafless silhouettes of trees and a quiet sense of nature at rest. A great way to experience the seasons in Ireland is to get out there and explore some of Ireland's gardens. There are tidy city gardens filled with colour and charm, sub-tropical gardens with exotic wonders, and formal gardens of epic scale. Just remember to dress for the weather!
