Recently I've been traveling around Ireland. Today is July 31. At my home in Florida I see the temperature is projected to be 93 degrees F. Here in Dublin it is a push to get close to 65 degrees F! This has been true almost everyday during the last two weeks. My group and I have logged almost 1200 miles traveling around the island in a counter-clockwise direction from Dublin. The weather has been mostly wonderful. Yes, there were several day of rain, but we took the philosophy of "if you don't like the weather, wait ten minutes and it will change."
So, if you want an escape from the hot summer heat... Ireland is the spot!
