On holiday in Ireland.

Ireland covers a large part of the island of the same name, which is largely surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean. Its location west of the United Kingdom means that Ireland falls into the westerly supply of depressions and rainfall areas. The temperate maritime climate that determines Ireland's weather is heavily influenced by the relatively warm Gulf Stream or North Atlantic Drift. The seawater ensures that it rarely gets seriously cold during the winter months but that temperatures are actually tempered during the summer months. This results in summers where summer temperatures are not so easily reached and tropical temperatures (30 degrees or above) are the exception. Most people do not visit Ireland for a sun holiday, but to experience the history, culture and nature of this fascinating holiday destination.

The climate in Ireland

Ireland is a country that covers about four-fifths of the island of the same name. The remaining twenty per cent consists of Northern Ireland, which is part of the United Kingdom. Ireland is known for its rugged nature, Irish whiskey and its unique culture. The capital Dublin is a fine example of this. Ireland has a maritime climate, with mild winters and relatively cool summers. Temperature extremes are rare. In the summer, the temperature does not exceed 25 degrees very often and real winter weather is rare along the coasts. Inland, there is a greater chance of frost and snow.
