Climate:
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.
