We're happy to hear you are considering a trip to the island of Ireland! Often called the Emerald Isle because of the abundance of fresh green, you can imagine some rain may be part of the experience. I'm happy to share some information on our island climate, so you can arrive well-prepared.
Ireland is a great destination to visit year-round, as every season
has its own unique atmosphere. The climate is influenced by the surrounding seas so there are no extremes in temperatures. Did you know that It is possible to experience different kinds of weather in one day? It may rain one moment, with the sun breaking through the next - rewarding you with a rainbow.
As such, the weather in Ireland is an attraction in itself and has done much to shape the culture on the island - there are many cozy pubs
where you can shelter when it's wet outside.
Here you can find some good advice about clothing to pack for your trip
. In any season layering clothes, sensible footwear and a rain jacket will keep you comfy.
I hope this is helpful and that you are ready to enjoy all of the nature and culture that Ireland has to offer - come rain or shine. Please let us know if you need more information or inspiration for your upcoming trip, we'll be very happy to share more tips with you!
