How much does it really rain in Ireland?

Let’s be honest, it would be advisable to take the right clothes and also an umbrella when visiting Ireland. Ireland is not known as the Emerald Isle for no reason other than the constant lush green landscape. To maintain it needs a lot of water.

Ireland on average measures more than 1mm of rainfall a day. The average rainfall in the South and East of the Country is about 150 days of rain a year. The West Coast gets about 225 days a year. As you can see Ireland will get rain throughout the year,

The ancient Romans called Ireland the “Land of Eternal Winter” (or Hibernia) because of it. 

However, while there can be wet days, it doesn’t rain all the time. You can also encounter glorious weather in Ireland! One of the joys of the country is that you can experience all the seasons in a day. Therefore, it helps to be prepared! 

Fortunately Ireland and all of its attraction can be enjoyed almost any day of the year as the weather would rarely be extreme.

Hibernia is not 'Land of Eternal Winter', it's just Land of Winter, or Winterland. Poetic licence is one thing but this is exaggeration.
