Need Help with Packing Hints for Ireland in October

Jump to last reply

Okay, I know this has been covered before but I still need some help. We are leaving for Ireland on October 8th and will be there for two weeks traveling counterclockwise to Dublin, Cork, Killarney, Doolin and back to Dublin (basically). We are thinking the weather will be cool but we're still confused as to what to bring for clothes.

I am traveling with my mother and every time we go to Europe the weather is never what we planned for. It is frustrating to say the least. We like to pack light so guessing what the weather will be like is important.

I guess my question is this....will it be sweater weather in October? With jackets? Boots? We both live in Southern states and it is hot where we live so cooler temps are even cooler for us. The weather websites say 50-60 degrees which could be warm or cold.
We are just so unsure of what to pack. Sorry to ask a question that has been covered here in the past but any help would be appreciated. :) Thank you so much!
