Spring in Ireland brings slightly warmer weather and heralds a time when days out can be enjoyed a bit more. That said, you will still need to wrap up, as the weather in Ireland in Spring can still be chilly, especially in the morning and evenings.

If you are wondering when does Spring start in Ireland, the first day of Spring is 1st March and lasts until the end of May. During these months, there are a number of things to do aside from the usual tourist attractions and typical days out.

Seasonal days out in Ireland in the Spring include searching for snowdrops early in the season, and bluebells towards the end of the season. Spring flowers in Ireland also include daffodils and wild garlic, which often accompany bluebells on the forest floor.

Easter also falls during Spring and lots of places hold Easter events such as Easter egg hunts, ideal if you are looking for somewhere to take the kids over Easter weekend.

Spring in Ireland is lambing season, so make sure to watch out for them in the fields as you explore the Emerald Isle.

Spring is a great time to visit Ireland as you’ll find fewer crowds than during summer, although watch out for the time around St Patrick’s Day. Days start getting warmer and longer, and with it being outside of the peak tourist season, tourist attractions and sites are quieter, making them more enjoyable.
