Euro/Northern Ireland?

We wll be travelling around the coast of Ireland in mid September and was wondering if we will need to change our money into pounds when we get into Northern Ireland or will they except Euro's? I also would like to know what the weather is usually like then.

Thanks

Oma,

My problem with you, is that you keep saying that Northern Ireland is more expensive than The Republic of Ireland. You said it again twice in your last post. And people look on TripAdvisor for just that sort of information.

And the simple truth is, that Northern Ireland is no more (nor no less) expensive than The Republic. Five different people on this thread agree on that fact. And no one else supports your position.

You are very confused to think that the exchange rate "costs" you money. Yes, you get fewer pounds than euros per US dollar - but each pound buys more merchandise than a euro. The exchange rate in this case is a total wash.

It's lovely that you think Northern Ireland is a nice spot. But you should quit telling people it's more expensive - It's not.
