    There isn't really a best time. At best the weather can be unpredictable however presently its' high season and summer and in general the weather is nice. The kids are off school so choose your accommodation carefully if you prefer not to have the sound of noisy kids around.

    While technicallly prices are higher at this time of year, in reality too many hotels were built during the boom years and hotelier are desperate to fill them. Therefore good deals can be had all year around, even more so in the Spring and Autumn. September can be a really good month, the kids are back at school, the high season is over so it's quieter so you should be able to pick up some really good deals. Often surpriisingly the weather can be better in September but this varies and we're having quite a good, sunny summer this year and plenty of summer festivals. This is Ireland, you can get the 4 seasons in one day however that's part of the charm of the country. Autumn is a beautiful time to visit when the trees turn red and golden and Spring is also due to the spring flowers and often beautiful mild weather.. Winter outside the holidays is the low season however every season has its charm. You'll probably get very good deals then however the weather will be chillier.& very occasionaly you can get snowed in. The country looks starker then. over 6 years ago

    I went during the winter because it is cheaper, but it was extremely cold, snow on the ground in many parts of the country. It depends on if you would rather save money or stay warm. over 6 years ago

    Hilary offers some great advice but the trick is to be prepared for anything and everything! I prefer out of season, purely from a selfish point of view that I dont want to travel with hordes of other people!

    So a wet day in the middle of November would be perfect for me - no tourists, no one around! LOL.

    Ireland is such a lovely place - I really liked Cork and Galway, and of course, Dublin. over 6 years ago

    Went to Ireland twice, both in March. Wear warm clothes and take an umbrella, but there are no lines and easy to get dinner reservations. over 6 years ago

    It really depends what you want to do! You can potentially experience 4 seasons in one afternoon which makes it tough to plan what to wear. Apart from that really anytime at all is a great time to come! over 6 years ago

    End of May. It's right before high season when the price goes up. June is also great but the price goes up. Weather is unpredictable at the best of times. Either way, I found lines were short at this time of year. You will have an amazing time. Ireland is a wonderful place to visit and the people are amazing... over 6 years ago

    I'm here right now as I waited for the ticket prices to drop at the end of August. The weather is definitely unpredictable, but at some stage it will definitely rain. Come prepared for a little bit of everything. Of course, I'm from Texas so I'm a little chilly.
    If you are looking for great deals check out the Groupon offers. Sligo was fantastic, and County Kerry was GORGEOUS. Ireland itself is quite expensive even if you disregard any exchange rates. Try Northern Ireland if you can - Belfast has a lot to offer and Giant's Causeway in Antrim is a must see. over 6 years ago
