Ireland in December


Ireland in December : Travel budget & tourist seasons.


Budget your trip depending on your departure time.

Beyond the tourist season (low, medium or high season) of the destination country, prices of your flight, hotel or all-inclusive stays may also vary depending on the demand in your country (our rates are evaluated from western Europe).

Thus, from western Europe, a stay will often be more expensive for a start during the school holidays.

In December, here's what you can expect on average:

  • All-inclusive stays: 845 € / week

  • Round-trip flight: 90 €

  • Tourist season: low

Ireland: Climate & Weather


Here, humidity is not an empty word: In some areas, it rains more than 250 days a year! However, changes in the weather are quick and very frequent, even during a single hour. Sun and rain play hide and seek all the time, sometimes they invite mist and rainbows.

May and June are the sunniest months and are therefore more pleasant to discover the country. Winter is temperate in general.

September also offers good weather, after the summer when temperatures rarely exceed 20°C with especially long days.
