Here in Ireland we are obsessed with the weather and talking about it is a bit of a national past time. Usually mild and temperate, Irish weather can best be described as changeable with four seasons in one day possible. So if you don’t like the weather, wait for a bit and it’s bound to change. Winter snowfall is possible but rare. Rain showers can happen any time which is why we have 40 shades of green and lots of rainbows.
The weather in Ireland is part of the Wild Atlantic Way experience and as they say, there is no such thing as bad weather just bad clothing. So come prepared, dress in layers and don’t forget your waterproofs!
