water temps in Ireland« on: July 19 2004 10:07:00 »
I'm none too sure what the premise is as the basis for deciding what type of suit should be worn at different types of the year, but if you want to go by the locals habits then the following applies:
June to end Sept: 3/2mm Steamer - booties required for foot protection rather than warmth
Rest of year: 5/4mm steamer + boots. Gloves & hood dependant on weather.
you can get away with a shortie in August if the weather cooperates. the water temp in the mid-west of Ireland (Co Clare) has not dropped below 10Celsius for the past 4 winters, and generally reaches 15 degrees in July, and can get as high as 17 by the end of August. Generally there is a slight difference in temp around ireland eg North is colder all the time, East coast is colder in winter, south coast is warmer all the time.
