- Times to Travel: You will find that Northern Ireland's climate is much milder than expected (considering its location), as all of the British Isles are warmed some by the powerful Gulf Stream Current as it makes its way north through the waters of the North Atlantic Ocean from the Gulf of Mexico.
There certainly are exceptions, but in general terms winters are damp, mild and windy, and summers pleasant with frequent cloudy days. Precipitation is possible at most anytime, but Northen Ireland's reputation as a rainy destination is exaggerated.
Travelers agree that April through September are the best months to visit.
- NOTE: Before making your travel plans to any worldwide destination, we strongly recommend you authenticate important details regarding all applicable health, passport and visa requirments. The people at Travel Visa Pro can answer all of your questions!
