There are certain questions in life that don’t have a precise answer. Some good examples would be questions like: “Am I going to find true love?“, “When will I win the lottery?”, “Is there life after death?” or… “Is it going to rain today in Ireland?“, “Should I get a jacket or just a t-shirt for a walk in Dublin?”.
You probably guessed it by now. The weather in Ireland is quite unpredictable.
One moment you could be basking in the Sun’s warmth, the next moment you’ll be trying to find cover from the rain. Weather in Ireland is unpredictable but not extreme. If you’re planning to visit this beautiful country, you should be prepared for rain showers while also packing clothes for warm weather.
Either way, talking about the Irish weather is something that comes up often when discussing with locals, so why not learn how to talk about the weather in Irish Gaelic? You never know when you’ll find yourself in the Gaeltacht or talking to a native Irish speaker.
