Planning a trip to Ireland? The number one thing you need to know is how unpredictable the weather can be on the Emerald Isle. So, to help make the packing process a little easier plan for rain, bring layers, and remove as needed.

Overall the weather in Ireland is mild, and in the summer the average temperature around 66°F (20 °C). When preparing for this trip, I relied heavily on lightweight sweaters and flannel shirts for my tops and jeans for my bottoms, and then I layered with vests and pullovers. For city wandering I brought a pair of Sperry Boat Shoes, and for wetter days/more adventurous days I wore a pair of Sperry Duck Shoes. I also lived in my rain coat paired with different beanies, scarves and gloves as needed. And yes, I do recommend packing one pair of gloves! We had one day of freezing wind while walking around and I was so glad to have them in my bag.
Below are some of the outfits I packed with me, but be prepared for a lot of pictures of my North Face rain jacket. This jacket was never far from reach during the ten days we were in Ireland. For the most part, I was extremely happy with the outfits I planned and would not change what I brought with me to Ireland.
