Autumn in Ireland

Show All From To

Autumn in Ireland is known for a packed programme of events, with a host of great festivals, music and walking weekends taking place across the country.

Follow the Wild Atlantic Way, Ireland's stunning coastal route, or head to Limerick to get involved in its year as National City of Culture. As the weather gets colder there's still time to enjoy the great outdoors, as well as sheltering inside with a great range of November film festivals.

Start planning an action-packed November now, with great arts, film and learning events across Ireland. Use our resources to make it an autumn to remember in Ireland.
