Enjoy the unending delights and year-round charm of Dublin as you stroll through the cobbled streets, rest by the Iveagh Garden and waterfall and soak up the historic scenic spots. Typically, the best time to visit Dublin is during the summer months of June, July and August. During this time, the temperature is relatively warm, with inevitable rain, and festivals in Dublin fill the streets. However, it is also the most pricey time to visit, with high hotel and flight prices. It can be fairly crowded, so steer clear of these months if crowds aren’t your thing. Whatever the weather, there are plenty of things to do in Dublin, from ancient, gothic castles to live music and art. If you’re looking for a deal and fewer tourists, bundle up in your best warm coat and head to Dublin in November, December or January. The winter season is the cheapest time to travel to Ireland. Autumn and Spring offer a happy medium, moderate temperatures, crowds and prices and beautiful seasonal foliage. Ireland’s temperature by month fluctuates, so it’s best to be ready for anything; rain or shine. Regardless of the best time to visit Dublin, Ireland’s capital is a vibrant city with fairytales, folklore, political revolutions, poetry and great pubs to be explored.
