Weather & Climate

Ireland has a somewhat unpredictable but relatively mild maritime climate. Often called the "Land of Perpetual Spring," it is warmed by the passing Gulf Stream. Summer temperatures normally range from the upper 50's - mid 70's during the day with nighttime temperatures as low as 50° F (if it is unseasonably cold). No part of the country is more than 65 miles from the ocean, and weather systems move in and out very quickly, so rapid changes in temperature are common. Locals say that Ireland is a place where you can experience four seasons in one day! You need to be prepared for a range of temperatures, including cool days and evenings and/or foggy, rainy periods. The wet and/or cool periods often disappear as quickly as they arrive; appropriate rain gear is highly recommended for your comfort. This does not necessarily involve an excess of clothing, just carefully selected items. The following chart of average temperatures in Killarney will help you to prepare for your tour.

Summer months are warmest but can be crowded with tourists. May and June are the sunniest months. September has fewer tourists and is usually dry and sunny but with cooler temperatures. EXPECT RAIN at any time of the year (It's what keeps Ireland green!). Don't leave home without rain gear.
