Introduction

study_in_irelandIreland is an island in the northwest part of continental Europe. Ireland as an island stands a twentieth largest island on earth and third largest in Europe.

Ireland and the Great Britain are the member of the European Union and as a consequence there is free movement of people, goods, services and capital across the border.

Irish whiskey is neither smoky as Scotch whiskey nor sweet as American & Canadian whiskies. Irish coffee – a cocktail of coffee and whiskey is internationally renowned as Irish cocktail.

Weather IconIreland’s climate is influenced most by the Atlantic Ocean. As a result, it doesn’t have the extreme temperatures that other countries at similar latitude would have. The average temperature is a mild 50°F.

A major warm ocean current called the North Atlantic Drift keeps sea temperatures mild too. Hills and mountains, mainly around the coast, shelter the rest of the island from strong winds coming off the ocean.

So while the weather can be changeable – it’s rarely extreme.

Spring – In spring the average highest temperatures range from 46 to 54°F, with April considered particularly pleasant.

Summer – In summer (May to July), the averages for highest temperatures are between 64 and 68°F. The warmest months, July and August, get about 18 hours of daylight and it gets dark only after 11pm. Hence the well-worn phrase in Ireland; “sure there’s a grand stretch in the evenings”.

Autumn – In autumn, (August to October) highest temperatures hit between 64 and 57°F. September is considered a mild, temperate month.

Winter – Winter air temperatures inland normally reach 46°F, while the coldest months are January and February. The temperature drops below freezing intermittently, and apart from a few freak cold snaps, snow is scarce.

There’s no such thing as a perfect time to visit Ireland. While in summer months are considered high season for visitors, autumn and spring are mid-seasons for travelers. During summer, visitors come for the long sunny evenings, parks in full bloom and to eat al fresco in cafés; in autumn they’ll be seen kicking bronze-burnished leaves. While spring sees nature kick into gear and flowers blossom, a walk through a national park on a clear, crisp winter’s day can mean seeing nature at its most impressive.
