St Patricks day in Ireland with Dovechauffeurdrive tours and Dave Hogan
The Cliffs of Moher on the Wild Atlantic Way.
Traveling to Ireland at any time needs proper planning, and one of the most important things to remember, is that you have to bring the right clothing with you. You will get all kinds of misleading advice from people who have been here before, and they are only going on maybe what they have experienced during their brief visit here.
I love Irish weather. It never gets too hot and it never gets too cold. We would literally melt here if our temperatures reached into the nineties, or even the eighties. We would freeze to death if it went any distance into the minuses. That does not mean that you do not need proper clothing. The air here is really good, clean and fresh, but the humidity levels in our atmosphere are higher than many places, and that leads to to air feeling chilly. Many visitors love this, especially those coming from places where they experience a lot of hot weather. You need to bring good warm sweaters,especially for the evenings, and you need your light weatherproofs. We do get a good deal of rain, but generally showers, and they are easy to deal with. When you see the wonderful flowers, and shrubs, and trees of all kinds, you will see just how much the rain brings to our lovely countryside.You do not need to bring an excessive amount of anything, but warm underclothing and warm sweaters, your rain gear, are a must. You have no need for fancy evening wear, unless you have a special occasion in mind. Smart casual is acceptable everywhere.
Umbrellas are not really ideal,especially at the cliffs, as you may find yourself blown all the way back to the USA.
In the meantime, enjoy your planning, and if you need me just e-mail me. Maybe a tour with me can solve all of your planning problems and difficulties. It just might be a lot safer also.
Regards for now
