In most of Ireland, the weather can be a bit unpredictable. Sunny days often seem few and far between and rain can become a fact of life. So it’s advisable to always be equipped with your umbrella and raincoat. Of course, all this rain is the reason why Ireland is so much greener. The best months of the year to visit Ireland are June, July and August because the temperature is warmer. Most of the famous Irish cultural festivals also take place in these months so it’s a great way to get acquainted with the Irish culture and tradition. You might want to visit a little later if you would rather avoid the tourist crowds. If you can tolerate cold weather, the winter months in Ireland can be a great time to enjoy a peaceful vacation.
