Northern Ireland Weather

Northern Ireland's climate is much milder than expected (considering its location), as all of the British Isles are warmed some by the Gulf Stream and North Atlantic Drift.

There are exceptions to every rule, but generally winters in Northern Ireland are damp, mild and windy, with some snow in the upper elevations. Summers are pleasant with temperatures on the cool side, and mostly partly-cloudy skies.

Northern Ireland can certainly be rainy, but its reputation as a constantly rainy (always carry an umbrella) destination is exaggerated.
