The temperatures do not vary much and range from on average between 4C and 7C in January and between 14C and 16C in July. The climate is generally wet explaining the dominant green colours of the landscape. The main cruise season is from mid-May to mid-September.
The Euro is the current currency of the Republic of Ireland.
The Great British Pound is the currency of Northern Ireland.
