For many Autumn is the best time to be out and about. It’s still quite mild and the colours are absolutely amazing.
Here’s our list of what to do this Autumn…
The west coast in Autumn is peak whale watching season. Minke whales first appear in the summer months but are expected to stay till November while the fin whales and humpbacks appear later in October and November. Orcas are a rarer sight though dolphins usually make themselves more seen.
Boat tours are helpful to see the beautiful beasts though they can still be seen from headlands and islands from the west coast.
Find your own food
Autumn in Ireland is a time of jam making, preserving and pickling. All of Ireland is a potential garden for picking and foraging. Irish Autumn yields are usually blackcurrants, blackberries, raspberries, apples, hazelnuts, seaweed, and mushrooms.
Foraging walks are guided tours allowing guests to collect and sample the local yields.
Beautiful autumn scenery
Alluring red and gold leaves are now peeping through into October and superb scenes can now be seen from hiking trails and pastoral landscapes. Ireland is home to many landscaped gardens, national parks, and mountain trails to take a walk and see the seasonal scenes.
Enjoy some traditional Irish music in a traditional Irish pub
Ireland, as you know, is very big into its traditional music and the traditional pub goes very well with this. The pub session is usually the focal point for these live Irish music performances and in Autumn these pub performances become more frequent with the coldness starting to kick in.
The Wild Atlantic Way
Now that the tour coaches have left for another year, the Wild Atlantic Way route is ready for exploring. The popular 1600 mile long route is filled with beautiful scenery, ancient castles and a few game of thrones film settings for loyal fans. The route can be divided up into digestible chunks.
