Heather in Bloom

I am planning a trip to Ireland and have looked in many places to find out when the heather is in bloom. This seems to be the only thing I cannot find out about the country. Would someone please help. Thanks

I have often been to Ireland in May and mostly saw the blooming heather at that time then. It always depends a bit on the weather, sometimes it's already April sometimes only end of May. And it was always the western part of the country (Co. Clare) where I've been.

Hi Butterfly. Not too far from Dublin is Glendalough, which is a great place for the heather. Cheers.

Yes - my husband and i are planning on going to ireland at some point next year for our next trip and i have also been trying to find out when the heather is in bloom there. I did find out that different varieties of Heather Flowers bloom from late July to November in the northern hemisphere. But, one of the other previous comments said that they have seen it as early as April or May. I would suggest inquiring where you are thinking about booking your accommodations for your stay in Ireland, as they would surely know. And let us know what you find out!

April and May sounds a bit early to me, but I can't be sure. This site may be of interest http://www.ipcc.ie/infoheathlands.html
