Clothing Tips for Ireland

Wondering what to bring? You'll need to be adaptable, so go for layers that you can put on or take off as the temperature changes. Bring a sweater, even in summer; waterproofs to accompany all outdoor activities; sunglasses; and comfortable walking shoes. Don't be fooled into thinking you won't need sunscreen in the summer months – when the sun shines in Ireland it's quite strong, so wear sunscreen and bring a sunhat. Short-term forecasts are viewable at Met Éireann.
Okay, it does rain in Ireland, but long bouts of rain are pretty rare. So, you can either put on suitable clothes, or duck into a nice cosy pub to wait out the shower. You can imagine which one is our favorite strategy.

Please see photo above for our color scheme for the wedding. We would love it if you wore any of these color ranges to the wedding; otherwise neutrals, pastels, and metallics like: nude, black, pinks, lilac, gold, and grey are preferred. Please see pictures below for examples of what other guests have worn to a wedding at Markree Castle.
