Plan Your The Southeast Vacation

Going to Ireland for the sunshine might sound like a joke, but not if you head to the golden beaches and blue surf of the Southeast. Receiving almost double the rays found anywhere else, the shore resorts buzz with activity from May to October. The Irish like to label their regions, and "Ireland's Sunny Southeast" is the tag they've applied to counties Wexford, Carlow, Kilkenny, Tipperary, and Waterford. The moniker is by no means merely fanciful: the weather station on the coast at Rosslare reports that this region receives more hours of sunshine than any other part of the country. Little wonder the outdoors-loving Irish have made the Southeast's coast a popular warm-weather vacation destination.
