Winter in Ireland

Cosy nights and adventure-filled days, Ireland is the perfect winter destination!

With cultural cities welcoming you in with open arms, winter warmers on hand to keep you toasty, and all sorts of festivals to keep you smiling, Ireland is a winter getaway with a difference!

With Christmas just over and the January blues setting in, Winter is the perfect time to take a a city break. I can’t thoik of a better place to go in Ireland during the winter than the the welcoming cities of Dublin, Galway, Cork or Belfast With interesting museums, extraordinary shows and a warm welcome from locals, Ireland’s cities are ideal for a winter trip.

In Ireland, we provide a warm welcome throughout the year– but winter brings extra winter warmers to keep you cosy throughout your stay. Taste tasty dishes, delight in a piping hot Irish coffee by the fireplace in the local club.

Winter is a season of celebration, and in Ireland we celebrate in style! Starting with Atlantic Sessions, where you’ll hear Northern Ireland’s finest musicians carry out along the spectacular northern coastline, followed by the constantly incredible New Year’s Festival in Dublin, which brings everybody together in event and hope of what’s to come in the brand-new year, and Tradfest, which showcases Ireland’s flourishing trad music scene in Dublin’s Temple Bar.

Obviously, there’s no need to stay indoors in winter, thanks to our moderate environment, while the weather condition might be a little chilly, it’s still ideal for checking out the outdoors.

Take a journey around the Ring of Kerry, trek the Sperrin Mountains, or head north to go after the Northern Lights.
