    After this week, I think we'd have to day yes to this thread.


    Wednesday was the best day and was totally clear in Dublin at least. All the other days were nice after Wednesday too but not 100% clear

    If it continues like this I will be very happy

    I'm an outdoor sorts - cycling and hiking and I love camping in the summer months - so the weather here doesn't bother me. Invest in some good quality clothes - especially for the rain - and it'll make it much more enjoyable. The amount of people that dress completely inappropriately for our weather and are unprepared when it turns is amazing.

    So true & even more so the people who work outdoors with hopeless clothing. On any wet day you will see the lads, in their hoodies, getting soaked. It amazes me how workmen will spend thousands on their tools & so little on staying warm & dry.

    I just walked the dogs along the shore & my Windwall Fleece over a polo shirt was perfect. Proper windproof clothing is as essential as waterproofs.

    In all fairness only one of the days was truly sunny. The weather has been great, not complaining at all but a whole sunny day is a whole sunny day

    can't the authorities make sunny days holidays so nobody has to work?

    You can see the sunshine graph of April 2016 in this document in the link above and look at the 20th. Was it that day? Plus temperatures were widely between 14-18c basking in the sunshine that day across the country.

    Yep... only two differences

    *More cloud - though not much
    *Cooler days and nights

    However, the positive thing about cooler days at this time of year is the fact that the sun is very strong and it will not feel quite cool in the sun!

    Yep Summer 2015's good days here at Grange

    June 7th, 8th, 9th, 10th, 18th, 23rd, 30th
    July 3rd
    August 12th, 13th, 18th

    ^ Hardly much!

    The mad fact is that there was no whole sunny day in Ireland last Summer.

    I have apples, pears, plums, greengages, various currants and figs growing and fruiting in the garden.

    Citrus fruits will not grow out of doors here, but some people have had success with them in conservatories.

    I know someone who has grapes and kiwis growing outdoors.

    Plenty of fruits other than berries grow here.

    I don't know about normal, but we usually get at least one run of great weather like this per year. The question is how long it lasts.
