OUR IRELAND ADVENTURES
WHEN TO GO
Thanks to the gulf-stream, the climate in Ireland is moderate all year round. Winters are relatively mild with temperatures rarely going below 0 degrees, but the days can be short, dark and stormy, making the season less ideal for outdoor activities. Best time to visit would be from April to October, with especially May and June usually bringing drier and warmer days, even though temperartures would rarely climb over 25 degrees.
WHAT TO BRING
Be prepared for fast changing weather and wear more clothes than necessary as opposed to too few. Even in the summer months the temperatures can vary over the day and windy rain showers can follow quickly after beautiful sunshine. Water- and windproof jackets and hiking boots are essential to explore nature at its best. especially as many of the hiking routes go through boggy areas which hardly ever dry out even after weeks of sunshine. The sun can be strong over the summer months, so prepare yourself with sun lotion, sunglasses and a sun hat.
