One common misconception about Ireland is that the Summers are not warm and that it rains often. While Ireland does get it’s fair share of rainy days, Summers in Ireland are actually warm and pleasant. July is the hottest month in Dublin with an average temperature of 60°F (16°C) and the coldest is January at 41°F (5°C) with the most daily sunshine hours at 6.3 in May. Long bouts of rain are very rare, and you can expect the temperature to be ‘just right’ during the Summer months! That means, if you are traveling to Ireland during the Summer, you can participate in many fun, warm weather activities and sports. We’ve created a list of some of our favorites that we think you’ll love:
