Weather in Ireland can be very unpredictable, however, the island does not experience extreme temperatures that other nations at the same latitude do. Being an island, the climate of Ireland is heavily influenced by the Atlantic Ocean.
June, July and August are the warmest months in Ireland, while January and February tend to be the coldest. Summer temperatures average between 15-20˚C (59-68˚F), but can reach as high as 25˚C (77˚F). The average winter temperature is 7˚C (44.6˚F), and snow is seldom, even in the mountainous regions. Rainfall tends to be higher in the northwest, west and southwestern parts of the country, with more rain coming in the winter than in the summer.
