The magnificent natural beauty of the island
Ireland is located in Western Europe and more specifically west of the UK. It’s completely surrounded by water (it’s an island after all) and it has the Atlantic Ocean to its west, the Celtic Sea to the south, and the Irish Sea separating it from England to the east. Ireland is home to six national parks all of which have their own lively exosystem and some of them are unexplored by humans. In those national parks, animal and plant species thrive in their natural habitat contributing to a natural landscape of great beauty.
One of the most popular natural wonders of Ireland is the Torc Waterfall, located in the Killarney National Park. This site has been attracting tourists from all around Europe and it’s definitely worth the visit. Powerscourt Waterfall is Ireland’s tallest waterfall and it’s set in the stunning surroundings of Powerscourt Estate.
Visiting those two waterfalls is a reason enough to spend some time off in Ireland. But if you’re not convinced yet, the stunning Slieve League cliffs will surely leave you astonished. Another natural wonder worth the visit is Dun Bristé. This impressive sea stack sits off the coast of County Mayo and it’s a breathtaking experience for anyone lucky enough to witness it. When it comes to wildlife, Ireland is incredibly diverse. Some of the species inhabiting the area are weasel, polecat, wildcat, most shrews, moles, water voles, roe deer, snakes, and common toads. There are also several birds and insect species that call Ireland their home.
What type of weather should you prepare for?
The island of Ireland has an oceanic climate, cool and damp, cloudy and rainy. It has a mild winter and cool summer, especially on the south of the island. Rainfall is frequent throughout the year, particularly along the west coast, where it rains on average even more than once every two days. So if you don’t find rainy days that attractive then staying on a farm in Ireland is probably not the best choice. But who knows, maybe the beauty of the scenery can change your mind.
Springtime in Ireland is from March to May and the temperatures remain very cool throughout the season. Nevertheless, spring is the least rainy and the sunniest season in Ireland, therefore it’s perfect for a short break on a farm. If you want to visit Ireland in the summer, then prepare for temperatures between 18-20 degrees. However, keep in mind that it still rains quite a lot during that time. Autumn in Ireland is cloudy and rainy, at times windy, with little room for sunshine, so it’s the perfect time to visit the island if you want to work remotely but still enjoy some change of scenery. Winters are quite cold but not freezing, while the sky is often cloudy, and the rains are frequent. Overall, prepare for a pretty rainy stay at a farm in Ireland. In that case what options do you have for outdoor activities? If it’s raining most of the time can you do anything outside at all? Let’s find out.
Staying active during your stay on a farm in Ireland
Even though Ireland doesn’t have the most welcoming climate, there are still plenty of options in terms of how to spend your time there. After all, Ireland is an adventure lover's paradise.

If you’re a hiking enthusiast, then you might want to consider challenging your body and mind to climb the Cliffs of Moher.

Another great hiking location is Connemara National Park. Rolling mountains, dark lakes, and ancient bogs - by conquering this landscape you’ll feel more alive than ever!
Another popular activity in Ireland is biking. Keep in mind that biking in Ireland can be quite challenging so if you’re planning to visit the island with your kids, then you might want to choose a softer route. Furthermore, biking is one of the best ways to see the full beauty of Ireland so it’s something you definitely don’t want to miss. The Killarney National Park is probably the most popular biking location, however, it’s not the only one. Great Western Greenway also has wonderful cycling tracks.
If you’re a fan of watersports and like to get wet, then what are you waiting for? Explore the Irish Dingle by Sea Kayak which is undoubtedly the best way to see the natural ocean harbor.
