Ireland’s weather is never boring or predictable. Dancing in the rain, blowing in the wind, but all the time, the sun is never far away!

Our climate can be summed up as being mild, moist and changeable with abundant rainfall and a lack of temperature extremes. You can experience all four seasons in the one day, if you’re lucky!

Climate in IrelandBecause the island is hugged all year round by the warm influence of the Gulf Stream, Ireland is much warmer than other countries that share its latitude. The Gulf Stream also ensures that the Irish coastline remains ice-free throughout winter.

Extreme winters are rare, and you’re more likely to encounter a warm glow than a frosty reception, with average winter temperatures of between 40°F/5°C and 46°F/8°C.

Summer temperatures are generally between 60°F/15°C to 70°F/20°C. One thing that is more than probable is rain – that’s what makes our grass so green, so don’t forget to pack your rain gear and a woolly jumper!
