What temperature can Irish people truly enjoy?

    What temperature can Irish people truly enjoy?

    I mean, I absolute start to bake at any temperature above 25C. I have to be near or in cool water to cope.

    But I hear people on holidays saying it's a "lovely" 30C+. That to me is just too much. Without air-con, it's unbearable. I also cant sleep on foreign holidays if it's mid-20s at night. And cities are even worse. Anything above 25C in a city is oven-like.

    My optimum warm temperature is probably 22C-23C and a few clouds in the blue sky.

    Between 20-23 for me is heaven in summer. I've been to Cyprus & Florida that were 40 and it was sickening.

    After winter I love 14 +.

    Nothing better than a warm spring sun on the face to bring a smile to my face.

    Winter: 3-6c
    Spring: 15-18c
    Summer: 18-20c
    Autumn: (unless it's November 2010....) 13-15c

    Its all about the humidity and wind really. A cold +3c with a 25mph wind and humidity in the high 80s is horrific when compared to say the -14c we had on Christmas morning 2010.

    In Paris a few years ago and was shocked to learn that it was 30c or 31c, felt more like a 22c or 23c here on a summers day.

    So, it's not just the temperature.

    Humidly is the killer here. 20 and a light northerly is heaven for me. 25 and a east/southerly is hell!

    Christmas morning 2010 was beautiful! :eek::eek:. Now you're actually making me sad because I miss that Christmas so much.

    Its really down to each individual. While I know some real sun worshippers, I suffer badly with an Irish summer, never mind a hot country. If it's a cloudless day or there is high humidity I avoid leaving the house. Dawn and dusk are my friends.

    I'm at my happiest around October, temps 8-13 degrees. I'm a wuss :)

    30*C in the Summer
    -30*C in the Winter

    I would like Northeast USA's climate.

    Low 20s to mid 20s is fine.
    When it gets to around 30C in Ireland, it takes a while to get use to it, and I rather have a siesta and enjoy the early morning and late evening.

    27C, retirement to the land where the rain don't fall cannot come quick enough.

    I find it depends on wind speeds for me.
    So in calm wind anything from 16c to 23c is good. But with wind its more like 20c - 25c.

    Unless your at the beach, in which case 23-30+ is what I would want, ie july 2013
