When I’ve been there in July and in August temperatures ranged 14°-21°C (which is 54-70°F). So definitely bring something thicker than a T-shirt!

I was just there in Letterkenney (County Donegal) which is close to Northern Ireland, in mid May. Eveeryone was saying it was colder than usual. I typically wore a sleeveless shirt or t shirt under a cardigan inside, and a jacket when we went out. Hiking on some bluffs, I definitely wished I had a hat as it was so windy! I’d definitely recommend taking layers!

Have fun! Where are you going in Ireland?

Be careful on the West Coast (of Ireland, that is), it’s VERY windy. When I went to the Cliffs of Moher the strong wind gave me the worst headache of my entire life. I couldn’t believe being in so much pain! SO get a jacket like the ones that one normally uses on a boat (wind-proof) but also get a *wool hat*. It’s not classy but you are going to need it.

i have been in June and we visited pretty much all the places you plan to. It is definitely normal for it to rain/sprinkle everyday, but it doesnt usually storm. I personally just lived in my lightly insulated rain jacket and it was perfect. I LOVED it tho it was never too hot or too cold and I didn’t mind the rain because it keeps everything looking gorgeous and makes for awesome rainbows! Your going to absolutely LOOVE it!

P.S. pack rainboots if you have them, mine came in quite handy!

Ditto about the winds on the west coast!  Even though it’s June, it’ll be best just to dress in layers.  Dublin has some of the craziest weather I’ve ever experienced — sunny one minute & then a downpour for about 10 minutes & then sunny again.  Even if the weather takes a turn for the worse (or better), you can always shop for some new clothes in Ireland! 

P.S.

Kilkenny is so pretty.  If time will allow, try to stop by the Irish National Stud Farm & Japanese Gardens between Kilkenny & Dublin.  Even if you’re not normally into horses, these beautiful animals are still impressive.
