Chauffeurdriven vacations in Ireland in September/October 2014

Many people ask me this question, "When is the best time to visit Ireland." I can tell you when it might not be a great time to come here, but with regard to he best time, that is not easy to answer. The bulk of my tours happen between the months of March, and the end of October, and in that period the weather can be quiet unpredictable. People come in March because they want to be here for St Patrick's day, but March can be tricky as it can be cold and wet and wild. You can be lucky though, so i cannot say that you should not come then. The chance of finding warmer, and better better weather, here in April increase, and May can be a lovely month. June July and August, and indeed September, offer a much better chance, but Irish weather, even in the Summer months, remains unpredictable.
The one thing i will say though, is that we have much better weather than we are given credit for having.
The two photos above were taken in the month of September, and as you can see September can be a very nice month to come here, as can October. Indeed many people prefer to come here before the Summer, maybe April or May, and later on again in September or October, and there are many good reasons for that.
First of all, air fares can be more reasonable. Then many people prefer to come in the off season because they know it will be a lot quieter. The daylight hours are still long, and it is never that cold and never that warm. All you need to do is come prepared, light rainwear always, and warm underwear, and a good sweater or two. Dress accordingly in other words. Nobody comes to Ireland to sunbathe, but you can enjoy a swim here, if you come during the Summer months. Remember....our west coast is the beneficiary of the warm waters of the Gulf Stream. Many people are surprised when they see so many people enjoying this particular activity on our many wonderful beaches.I grew up beside the beaches in Salthill Galway. We swam all through the Summer months and we were as brown as berries. The water on many of our beaches is crystal clear and rich with iodine from the seaweed.
Please do not complain because we get the rain we need to keep the grass green for you, and all of the wonderful flowers and shrubs that you will no doubt fall in love with. As the song says, "You can't have one without the other".

I like to say that Ireland is always beautiful, it is just that some days she wears a different dress.
Come and see for yourself.
