If we are looking at Ireland-Golf-Packages-when is the best Ireland Weather Forecast?

One sure thing is the weather in Ireland is warmer in the summer. Perhaps the best reason to go in summer is the daylight, which can last to 10:30 p.m. on the longest days. This makes it easy to play more than one round in a day.

If you decide to organise a golf travel package in Ireland in the winter months, December through March, note the average daily temperature can get quite low but unless their is snow golf courses are usually playable.

There’s never a truly bad time for an golf holiday in Ireland. Unlike parts of America, most golf courses in Ireland, especially the seaside links, are open year round. That’s because Ireland’s climate is temperate, seldom getting extremely hot or cold.

One thing is that just because the weather in Dublin -eastern Ireland is sunny doesn't mean it is the same say as northern Ireland weather as Ireland weather can be totally different even though places are only a few miles apart.

The Atlantic Ocean is the dominant influence on Ireland's climate and moderates the weather so we neither experiences extreme cold in winter or extreme heat in summer. 


The general impression that it rains quite a lot in Ireland is not really true.When rain does fall the amounts are generally very low ranging from 1-2 mm. per hour. Heavier rainfall does and can occur.
