What is the weather in November early December?

We are looking at an air/lodging package to stay at the Adare Manor Villas. The winter are months are offered at a reduced rate. What is the weather like over Thanksgiving week and the week after? Would that be better than February? I understand the days are short. Our other option is to book at a higher rate and arrive around the first of November. Advice?

It's difficult to differentiate significantly between November and February in terms of which is the better option for a vacation. Overall, be prepared for short days with a fair prospect of rainfall and some frosts in both months. Average daily temperatures would be about 8 degrees C in November and 6 degrees C in February with a greater possibility of frosts and snow in February. Historically rainfall would be somewhat less in February than in November.

However, current fluctuations in weather pattens makes any form of forecasting impossible - right now, we are having one of the wettest summers on record.

Given a choice, I'd go in November but I'm unsure if early November could be guaranteed to be any better than the latter part of the month.

I would agree with everything said above - personally I would opt for the end of November as you will be arriving at the start of the run up to Christmas which does seem to get earlier every year - evenings will be very short though dark around 4.30 pm - but the festive atmosphere should make it a nice time to visit.

Good luck with your decision.

I have been to Ireland 2 times in February and the weather, although daylight short, was very nice. I had worse weather in July..

The weather in either November or February could be anything, the only set thing is the short daylight hours, once the clocks change at the end of October it does seem very dark, very early!!

You may get bright frosty days, snow, ice or worse, those horrible drizzly days when it never seems to get light.

However, the pubs will be warm and cosy, and as said, in late November, therew ill be Christmasy stuff about.
