Top tips

  • As its part of the UK, the currency is the British Pound
  • Driving is easy but the bus network, especially between cities, is fantastic
  • Take a city tour in Dublin and in Derry/Londonderry, there are plenty of hop-on, hop off bus tours and taxi tours available
  • School summer holidays start early here, visit in May or September to avoid the crowds at sites like the Giants Causeway
  • Avoid, or chose! to travel around the 12th July. This fortnight is known as ‘marching season’ and is a historically controversial period when Unionists celebrate the Battle of the Boyne

When To Go

Northern Ireland has a bit of a reputation for being… well… wet.

November – February – The low season brings short days and low temperatures. But due to the temperate climate of the surrounding ocean, temperatures rarely go below freezing, and it is slightly warmer than most other parts of the British Isles.

March – May – Springtime in Northern Ireland brings a fair amount of rain, but with nature in full bloom it is an ideal time to visit. It is also well suited to those who want to miss the crowds found in the summer season.

June – September –  Summertime see’s the best weather and therefore the most crowds. Temperatures hover in the low to mid twenties but Belfast in particular can still be a bit windy.

September – November –  Autumn colours are simply spectacular this time of year, but expect a windy visit.
