Traditional pubs are important for Irish people of all ages. They like to meet there to catch up with their friends, relax, unwind and enjoy a Guiness or Powers or Jameson whiskey and listen to a traditional music session.

Ireland’s climate is considered to be mild and changeable. This is due to the Gulf Stream in the Atlantic Ocean. Temperatures range from 15 to 20 degrees in summer, around 10 degrees in spring and autumn and 4 to 7 degrees in winter. Irish weather is never predictable and you should be prepared for the unexpected.
