Tips for Travelling in Ireland

What to Wear Read More

One of the questions our travellers ask us quite often is what to wear while travelling in Ireland.

The first thing we say is – layers are key! Irish weather can be quite changeable so you’ll want to be ready to put on or take off an additional layer. Good quality waterproofs are the second most important element of dressing right for your Ireland adventure.

We have a couple of handy articles about what to wear in Ireland:

Another topic that comes up frequently is the weather in Ireland. The Emerald Isle has a reputation for raining quite a lot (hence all the green!) but is this really true?

Yes and no. In Ireland, we do get a fair amount of rain showers – and a good few rainbows! – but we also get a fair amount of sunshine too.
