Green and Grey in an Irish Winter

I often get asked about how the weather is in Ireland in winter.

Well, it's hard to say anything definitive but in general, Ireland is green all year round including in winter.

Just like in the image above from the west of Ireland in December.

Typically a winter daytime temperature will be around 5C but colder conditions and snow sometimes occur. The mild winter temperature is what allows the grass to keep its healthy green colour, blanketing the countryside.

And of course it is often sunny in winter, so although it might not be as warm as you are used to, the weather isn't usually extreme.

Join Panoramic Ireland to photograph the Irish countryside in winter, spring, summer and autumn. From the Antrim Coast to West Cork, Dublin to Galway.
