Climate in Ireland from May to August
It is no coincidence that this multifaceted location is called ‘Green Ireland’. This is because one of the many peculiarities that characterises this country is its rainy weather. It is not easy to predict the weather because it turns out to be unstable. In fact, not a day goes by that in some cities one witnesses at least five minutes of rain, often very violent due to strong gusts of wind.
Light is also a determining factor in Ireland. The hours of sunshine are few throughout the year, only from May until June you can enjoy 6 hours of light, while at all other times, the days are rather short.
Let’s look specifically at what the climate is like on the island of Ireland, taking the capital city of Dublin as a reference point.

For those who love the sea and want to bathe in Dublin’s waters, it should be noted that the temperature is very low. It reaches 15° in July and 16° in August so bathing is not advisable for those who suffer from the cold.
