    You're Going to Be Cool and Wet!

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Luggage and bags: When traveling within Europe, extra charges generally apply to anything more than a 20lb (9kg) carry on bag. Check with your airline! Baggage prepurchased online may be much cheaper than at the time of check-in.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: There's no secret to why Ireland is the "Emerald Isle". The DRIEST year on record, 1887, received 14inches (356.6mm) of rain, which is about average for the western half of the United States. The WETTEST year, 1960, received over 13feet (3964.9mm)! With mean daily temperatures between 37F (2.7c) in January, and 67F (19.4c) in July, and less than 5 hours of sunshine per day (summer mean), the odds are you're gong to be cool and damp. MUST: waterproof outerwear, layers, and waterproof or water tolerant footwear.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Common OTC (over the counter) medicines such as expectorants and antiflatulants available in the US seem to be non-existent. You may want to take some with you, but be sure they are in their original package and clearly labeled!

    Photo Equipment: Your most stunnng photo opps are probably in the most remote areas, bring LOTS of batteries, media cards, and/or film. Common supplies are available in most towns, but you're likely to spend a lot of your time OUT OF TOWN!
