Not too hot and not too cold – you'll find Ireland's climate just right. Find out what to expect for your visit.

One of the greatest blessings of the west of Ireland is the weather: there is no bad weather, just poorly chosen clothing. Although it does rain, long bouts of rain are quite rare. Ireland’s climate is influenced most by the Atlantic Ocean; it doesn’t have the extreme temperatures that other countries at similar latitude would have. The average temperature is a mild 50°F and a major warm ocean current called the North Atlantic Drift keeps sea temperatures mild too.
