Best Times to Visit Dublin

The best time to visit Dublin is June through August 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 offer a happy medium – moderate temperatures (again, for Ireland), crowds and prices.

June-August

Travel in the summer for the best weather – but be prepared to also encounter the highest prices and biggest crowds. Average highs hover in the mid-60s with lows in the upper 40s and low 50s, so it's a good idea to pack layers and a light jacket. 

Key Events:

September-November

Temperatures in the fall are mild – highs ranging from the upper 40s to low 60s – so bring jackets, sweaters and scarves. Fall also ushers in multiple art and theater festivals. Another plus: hotel prices will be falling as well. 

Key Events:

December-February

Dublin winters are chilly, with temperatures in the 30s and 40s, so make sure to pack a warm winter coat. It's also the time of year that sees the most rainfall and possibly some snow. Travelers who visit this time of year can usually score pretty significant deals on their hotels and airfare. And remember that pints in pubs are a great antidote to chattering teeth and goosebumps. 

Key Events:

March-May

The spring season brings more sunshine and warmer temperatures, but with highs in the 50s, you'll still want to pack some sweaters along with your T-shirts. Visitors this time of year are few with one exception: St. Patrick's Day. If you plan to travel over the holiday, make sure to book well in advance.
