Enjoy The Temperate Climate Of Ireland

Ireland has a temperate oceanic climate. While wet and rainy, the weather is mild with no temperature extremes.

The temperature in all areas of Ireland typically ranges between 45°F and 70°F throughout the year. Rain is an everyday occurrence in Ireland, though some areas get more than others (the west coast sometimes gets over four times as much precipitation as the east). In many regions of the country annual rainfall reaches or even exceeds 100 inches per year.

Ireland’s “Sunny Southeast” region (counties Carlow, Waterford, Kilkenny, and Wexford) enjoys less rainfall and more hours of sunshine per year. The interior, midland areas of the country generally get the most extreme temperatures. Athlone, for example is more likely to experience snow in winter and tends to be a few degrees higher than the average in the summer.

Before you commit to retirement in the Auld Sod, experience it in winter. Or consider spending only part of the year in the country. Ireland is a place that makes good sense as a part-time retirement haven. You could retire to Ireland each summer, then spend your winters someplace bright and sunny.

As in any country, weather depends on your region, but generally Ireland enjoys a temperate, but wet climate, without major temperature fluctuation from season to season. But it can be unpredictable. Above all, you need to expect the unexpected.

Meandering along Galway's bayside promenade, enjoying the sunshine and the fresh sea air, with the ice-blue Atlantic on our left, the city's cobblestoned central square to our right, and seagulls circling overhead, making our way back to the hotel after lunch, it was Kaitlin and her...
