Sports of all types specially Gaelic Football and Hurling. The Irish are the world's most sports loving nation, so join them in enjoying the many sports which are played here.

When to go

Ireland is a country where you can experience four seasons in one day. The seasons are all fairly mild, but in any one day it could change from sunny to fairly cold rapidly. Always be prepared for rain, since the rain comes down quickly and with little prior notice.

During the summer season from May until mid September the days are reasonably warm and long enough for you to enjoy the place. These are the peak tourist seasons, and the most crowded times in Ireland. The spring and autumn months are slightly colder and if you want to avoid the crowds you should visit Ireland during those months.
