The peak season in Ireland is July and August. While this is the time of year that you’ll likely have the warmest and clearest weather, it’s also the time that most tourists visit, hotels get booked up and prices sky rocket.

Shoulder Season

Spring and Fall are definitely the shoulder seasons in Ireland. This is the best time to visit the country for a combination of decent weather and fewer crowds. Keep in mind that easter is a popular holiday here and things can get busy around that time.

Ireland definitely isn’t a budget destination, but if you’re careful with your money, staying in hostels and dorm rooms, you can actually get by on quite little. For the more luxurious traveller, the sky is the limit. Michelin Star restaurants, 5-star accommodation and fantastic nightlife, this is a place where it pays to have some extra pounds in your wallet.

Budget €45 / Day

Hostel accommodation, still central in Ireland, should be available for €12 ($14) per person so it is possible to live on €45 ($55) a day including drinks, food and transport.

Mid-Range €130 / Day

You can get a double room in most places in Ireland for around €45 ($53) and then if you have a few drinks in a pub and a dinner, and perhaps a rental car for your trip.

Top-€200 / Day

Stay at beautiful boutique hotels and eat at top restaurants and you will spend up to  €300 ($360) for a couple before you even consider wine with dinner, drinks in a popular pub, taxis and drivers.



There are plenty of great ways to get around Ireland including public transport, private drivers, rental cars, RVs and caravans. Your mode of transport will likely depend most on your budget, and your preferred style of travel.
