The weather in Ireland is fairly changeable but May till September are the best times to visit.
Typical winter weather in Ireland is clouds and rain with the occasional sunny spell. The mountains may have snow on them for a number of weeks in winter, but falls on the lower ground on only a few days a year, and is generally not a feature of the Irish climate. Temperatures hover around a January average of 5ºC. Overnight temperatures often drop below freezing point, and ice and frosts are common. There is nothing quite like a clear crisp winters evening in Ireland, the stars a clear as there is little light pollution. Each winter there are a few days when the temperature does not rise above freezing point all day, and rivers and lakes can partially freeze over but this usually doesn’t last for too long.
Typically, summers in Ireland have warm, sunny weather and a sky dotted with gentle fluffy clouds. Light rain occasionally occurs on days like these, but summer rain is usually restricted to a few wet days.
In July and August, the conditions can bcome very humid and thunder storms can occur with lightning. The average July temperature is around 15ºC, although temperatures in excess of 30ºC are not unheard of.
One of the main financial outgoings in a home in Ireland is the heating costs due to the fluctuations in the temperature. If you live in and are looking for Oil Heating Services in Dublin then I would reccommend Update Heating.
