    The great Dublin-born playwright and wit Oscar Wilde once said: “Everything in moderation. Including moderation”. And when it comes to weather, Ireland follows his advice. We enjoy a temperate climate with mild winters and cool summers. Usually, we get a little rain (yes, we admit it), a little sun, a nice breeze to blow the cobwebs away… But every now and then Ireland throws moderation to the winds and surprises you with moments of pure weather drama and unsurpassed beauty.

    Thrilling lightning storms, rainbows that light up the sky, wind-whipped waves crashing against jagged cliffs. And then there are the quiet moments – dappled clouds in a summer sky, early-morning frost that sparkles in the sunlight and the shadows of clouds chasing across mountainsides. We’ve collected some of Ireland’s most incredible weather images here to prove our point. Enjoy!
