Best Times to Visit Dublin

The best time to visit Dublin is in the summertime when temperatures are warm (for Ireland anyway) and festivals fill the streets. This also constitutes the most expensive time to visit, with high hotel rates and airfare prices. It's also the most crowded time of year. If you're looking for a deal and fewer tourists, come in the winter with your heaviest coat. Spring and fall make the happy medium -- moderate temperatures (again, for Ireland), crowds and prices.

If you are traveling over St. Patrick's, be sure to book your room well in advance.
