Ireland's climate is milder than expected (considering its location), as it is warmed some by the Gulf Stream and North Atlantic Drift.

Those currents bring lots of rain to Ireland, especially along its Atlantic Ocean coastline, where daily rainfall is commonplace.

Winters are quite moderate, and temperatures below freezing are rare. The higher elevations do receive some snow, seldom heavy.

Summers across the country are pleasant as temperatures remain mild. The east coast is warmer, with occasional highs in the low 80's.

What is the National Animal of Ireland?

The national land animal is not very clear although the Irish Hare has been treated as the national animal. It can be noted that the hare was not the original idea for a national animal. Initially the Irish elk is what was defined as the national animal, an iconic mammal that was found in the whole of Northern Europe. Since this mammal no longer exists, the next possible contender for the spot was the red deer. This was not well received as its origin was also not very clear. Some people still consider the red deer as the national animal.
