So the native Ulster fry has tempted you. So the cradle of the Titanic has made you wonder. So the stories of the Troubles and the indomitable bloom of the country surpassing them have intrigued you. In that case, it’s about time that you had your bite of the Norn Iron folks and their scenic lands lavishly laden with hills, mountains, landscapes, wavering coasts, rivers and loughs. The weather in United Kingdom all over is popular for its unpredictability quotient. But this very instability also allows for quick weather change from place to place. Hence there’s really no need to wipe your plans on occasion of a few drops especially if you’re en route to another place for it could result in getting out of the dampness into clear skies of another county. Although it must be said that the ones who plan months ahead for an Irish escapade are bound to be rewarded with cheap airfares, best suits for accommodation and a lavish spoonful of the events’ rich line-up.
The Beckett festival, Dalriada festival and the Belsonic 2012 are a few of the many events that happen in Northern Ireland around July and August. As can be expected these two months are the high season because of the settling down of the showers and the vibrant summer vibe going around. The outskirts of Belfast, and the counties of Armagh and Down of the total six counties, are probably the busiest of all tourist attractions. With the Titanic Belfast on Queen’s Island being a crowd-puller, the Belfast weather conditions in summer also allow for curious minds to explore its fine zoos, ornate botanical gardens and Belfast castle. The long daylight hours and the oceanic temperatures attract hordes of people in the summer which makes the fall and spring yet another great time of the year for an Irish experience. Although there are fewer chances of rain and outdoor activities like fishing, golfing, walking, cycling, canoeing along with other adventure activities are on, it is important to follow the local weather forecast for making good memories. These days it is easy to get a feed on the wind speed, humidity, chances of rain and tides before setting out for an exciting day. With a little foresight on weather, things like clothing, mode of transport, personal itinerary, adventure sports, attending festivals, indulging in the native food, astoundingly cheap vodka and beer can be taken care of easily. After all destinations as glorious as the Mourne mountains, Giant’s Causeway, the Sperrins and the Walled City of Derry call for a perfect weather and a dedicated abundance of time.
