    The weather is pretty much the same the whole year around. During the summer, it never gets very warm, never beyond 23, 24 degrees. And the good news is that during the winter, it never goes below five degrees or very rarely, it does. Is a windy weather as well, and it rains, but typically rains maybe a little bit, but then it stops. So we have the we say that we have four seasons in one day. But you will enjoy many bright days if you're studying in Trinity.

    Weather in Ireland can be quite changeable, it can vary from around zero, the lowest temperatures to mid 20s, so it doesn't get too hot, it doesn't get too cold, but we do get quite a bit of rain. So they say in Ireland, if you don't like the weather, wait five minutes because it'll change. We are an island off the coast of on the Atlantic. So there are changeable weather conditions. But in the main, it's pretty mild.

    Describe the Irish weather in one word I would use changeable. So the weather changes very, very frequently. It can go from bright and sunny to windy and rainy in the space of an hour. So best thing to do is to wear layers, to bring some waterproof clothes and an umbrella is always very, very useful. So more rain and a little bit colder than you're used to maybe, but very pleasant weather as well. So not not too cold, not too hot.
