Ireland may not be tropical, but this doesn’t mean you should leave the sunscreen at home. Always wear a high factor SPF and don’t forget your sunhat. It’s always a good idea to bring a light jacket as well – in case of those pesky summer showers! Don’t worry, during a rain shower you can always take refuge in a friendly pub and maybe grab a sneaky pint…
The lush green scenery, long evenings and a packed festival calendar make Ireland a perfect summer destination. Bonus: Ireland has plenty of FREE activities to fill your summer holidays: http://bit.ly/1KOfnXd
