    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.

    This is a very popular question about Ireland. We like to say we get four seasons in one day. Overall, we have a very mild climate that allows our students to enjoy the outdoors and explore our beautiful countryside, beaches and mountains.
