Weather In Cork; Best Weather This Weekend for St. Brigid’s Bank Holiday


In honor of St. Brigid’s Day, Ireland is celebrating a bank holiday this weekend and the people of Cork and Munster are set to enjoy the best of the weather in all of Ireland. According to Met Eireann, conditions across Munster will be sunny and bright with very little chance of significant rain over the weekend.

Temperatures in Cork City will be warmer than in Lisbon today, although overnight lows might dip as low as -1C.

Saturday will bring long sunny spells throughout much of Munster with the highest temperatures ranging from 8C-11C depending on where you are in Cork.

Make sure you have your coat handy, though as Sunday won’t be quite as warm!
