The Weather In Ireland

The Climate in Ireland is unique and is a perennial subject of conversation. There is an old saying, “You don’t go to Ireland for the weather”. However, the weather in Ireland can be quite pleasant. The temperature remains relatively moderate throughout the year, never getting too hot or too cold. Temperatures typically range between 40 and 50 degrees Fahrenheit (4 to10 Celsius) in the winter months and 60 to 70 degrees Fahrenheit (16 to 21 Celsius) in the summer months.
It rains a lot, and seldom snows. Accumulations are greatest in the West and least in the East and occur most frequently in the summer months. Storms can blow in from the Atlantic without notice. It can be sunny one minute and raining the next. It can be sunny, quickly shower, and once again become sunny. A few moments later, you would never know it rained at all. Often the rain does not last long and comes as soft showers or a fine mist. They often produce absolutely spectacular rainbows.
During the summer months daylight can last well into the late evening, and the nights can be described more like twilight than darkness.

    Did you know that Ireland has a 7% annual growth rate and that the country is also known as the Celtic Tiger? I learned that in my Economics class last week. -Niece
