Rock of Cashel |Ireland Chauffeur Travel

Did you know that one of the best times of the year to visit Ireland is in Autumn?

Though famed for greenness, Ireland in Autumn is something quite rare and beautiful. While it’s true that Autumn is a darker season in Ireland, the shorter days have many advantages as they give way to some dramatic sunsets and sunrises. This is also the season where you may have the chance to see the Northern Lights! As evenings turn cooler, you couldn’t wish for a better excuse to nurse a pint or a whiskey in a cozy local pub with traditional Irish music for company. Experiencing Autumn in Ireland will definitely bring out your adventurous side and leave you with amazing memories.
