Rain Gear Tips (5)

Pack your brolly!!!

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear Cork is probably one of the wettest places in Ireland so an unbrella is a must. Don't let that put you off though as it's also one of the sunniest - you just need a brolly for the showers!!

Pop into Pennys or Dunnes on Patrick Street (the main street) for a cheap one if you're forgetful like me and have long since lost your last brolly :)

Rain, Rain go away

Luggage and bags Recommend packing just enough to do a carry on bag - it's so much easier and you can do laundry in your room sink. Most rooms will have radiators which you can dry your clothes on.

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear Definitely comfortable - waterproof shoes. Streets and sidewalks can be a bit slippery - some are uphil which is bad when really wet. We both took shoes made by Born and they held up wonderfully and were comfortable. Pack a rain coat and/or umbrella. If you go in fall - the wind can be pretty chilly definitely take layers because it's chilly outside and warm inside.

Toiletries and Medical Supplies Pack light - anything you need to can pick up at Boots the Chemist.

Photo Equipment Something that doesn't get affected by too much water...

Packing List

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear Bring an umbrella! The weather changes hourly in Ireland and it rains most days during the autumn/winter/spring months. It's very rare to see snow or ice in the city, but a warm jumper keeps the chills away when the weather turns cold.
