First trip to Ireland this October? Good time of year?

Jump to last reply

We'd like to go to Europe this October, and Ireland has long been on our list of countries to visit.

Due to work constraints, we can only travel in early October. Other than the Ring of Kerry I don't have anything planned.

I realize we won't be there during festivals, but we're happy to miss the crowds.

I'm wondering if October is a good sightseeing time. I don't mind cool weather as I find it much easier to walk than in the heat of summer, but I'd prefer not to choose the rainiest month either, as we'd like to really appreciate the stunning scenery.

I understand there may well be some fog or mist, but if it's likely to be blustery and rainy for days on end, we maybe should think of going somewhere else.

I also really understand that no one can predict what will happen, I guess I'm just looking for the law of averages. Hopefully someone who lives there, or who travels there alot can put a light on this for us.

Many thanks.
