Depending on where you go, it may be brisk.  The best thing to do is dress in layers & pack an umbrella.  When I was in Dublin, it literally rained for about 15 minutes at a time, then the sun came out & dried everything up.  Then about an hour later, it downpoured again.  (“Lather, rinse, repeat!”)  As long as you’re prepared, you’ll be fine.  Also, a few pints of Guinness or Smithwick’s helps to pass the time in between any showers!  😉  Enjoy!

I can’t help with your weather question because I went there in july, but I just have to say that Ireland is amazzzzzinggg and will be beautiful no matter what the weather is! It was a little drizzly when we went there in July but we had a blast, and it was incredibly gorgeous. PM me if you want some tips if you decide to go there!

I would think it might be cold. We went in August and it rained every day, and the warmest it got was like mid 60s. You can google an average temperature for that month I think.

Okay, I’ve been living in Ireland for three years now. To be honest, the weather here is unpredictable basically all the time. You can wake up to bright sunshine and an hour later it’s pouring rain, and then sunshine again. It will be mild weather, but if you are lucky if the rain stays away. 

Also, I might say it depends on where you are going (city, seaside, countryside) But it is more humid here compared to where I used to live before (Scandinavia). Other than that, Ireland is beautiful.

i was in ireland through late august, and we were lucky to have 60 degree days, so i would imagine that october is chillier, like 45-50 degrees.

that being said, the weather is unpredicatable. but ALWAYS carry a coat/sweater, because you WILL want it!

i was on the west coast, in ballyvaughan south of galway on galway bay (the burren area)

We just got back for Ireland a few weeks ago and it was SO amazing.  The weather sucked (for  early July), it rained every single day, and one or two days most of the day.  And it only got up the the late 60”s or early 70’s.  Just bring an extra umbrella or two, some sweeters, a thick poncho and enjoy.  So worth it!

Temperatures not too bad around 50. As long as you have good rain proofs and an umberella you are set for the worst. Otherwise you could be fine and have some bright mild days. Its pretty unpredictable.

@flutterbymagik:  Im originally from ireland/ the north of it, generally we have 2-3 weeks of summer weather usually about may/june, the odd week in sept can be nice. other than that its much the same as described by above posters, rainy one min, sunny the next. In general tho ireland is the place to go for beautiful scenery, friendly locals, historic buildings/areas. I like the west coast galway/mayo sligo, but dubin is such a nice city, temple bar is a very expensive area but with lots of friendly people, can be a bit loud to stay in and expensive. We went into templebar and met a local man in the pub (they just chat away to ya its great) he was going across the bridge to a more traditional local pub where the price of a pint was 1/2 the price of a pint in temple bar, we went with him, and it literally was 5 mins away, and it had locals sitting playing music, and a bar that you didnt have to que at and pints at half the cost ( bars called MacNeills.. just incase u ever go), more relaxing than the buzz of templebar and more realistic. if you get chatting to the locals they always advise u the best places to visit!! enjoy!

@flutterbymagik:  Weather is very unpredictable here. (eg, the weather was warmer this March than it has been this Summer) That being said, weather doesn’t tend to really cool down until the end of October. I would bring lots of jeans, jumpers, raincoats and maybe a warm jacket. If you want advice about what to do let me know 🙂

It’s not freezing in October, cold but not too bad during the day, early morning and evenings would be cold enough though. Lots of showers too. If your heading to Ireland you have to visit the Kerry area, nicest part of Ireland IMO!
