end of March or mid-May?


hi - I just found this forum a few minutes ago .... I'll have lots of questions that hopefully archive searches will answer (I don't want to duplicate the "same ol' questions"!).  But for starters my question is:  which is a better time to travel to Ireland - the last week of March/early April or the last half of May?  I have a feeling it is May
regarding weather.  What events/activities would I be missing if I choose either set of dates?


thanks
Meggen

Meggen,


Welcome to my forum. Your feelings are right -- mid-May is generally better than then end of March. Not only is the weather usually better and a bit warmer but more sightseeing attractions will be open then. In fact 99% of them are open in mid-May. Also all the trees and flowers are blooming, little lambs are in the fields (and maybe on the roads) & it is my all-time favorite month in Ireland.

thanks Michele,
mid-May it is then!  ok - now I can start some serious planning for a first trip to Ireland with my two kids - 17yrs,19yrs.  Little lambs are certainly cute and there must be "even
more cute" baby goats running about too!  sounds like fun
