Things to do on Cape Clear Island
Going on a whale and dolphin watching trip, with seals, sharks, even leatherback turtles is a must for those wanting a sea adventure.
April is a rare bird spotting time, as Cape Clear is on the migration paths. Visit in May for all the glorious wild flowers and a bit of basking shark spotting. June, the quiet start of summer, perfect for loving couples and sunny days. July for the warmth of the summer when the island is in full swing. August sees the regatta, filling the small harbours to bursting point. September brings the magical International Storytelling Festival all over the island, with guests from around the world.
