What to pack in your suitcase for a winter holiday in Ireland

In the cold months of winter, despite the torrential rain, and somewhat dreary days the Country of Ireland can still be a bastion of beauty and many families, couples and singletons specifically choose to visit there for a holiday over the Festive period.  When packing a suitcase for this much anticipated week, winter vacation in Ireland, remember the weather and be prepared for every eventuality. Plenty of warm, fleecy socks, sturdy walking boots, several pairs of thermal underwear, and stretchy leggings. A pair of jeans and at least one, warm, colourful womens merino wool sweater from a company such as https://www.shamrockgift.com/aran-sweaters/womens-aran-sweaters/womens-merino-wool-irish-sweater is essential.

Two pairs of fleecy pyjamas and a dressing-gown, a lightweight, waterproof coat, a thicker, fleece lined jacket, a pair of wellington boots, some pretty tops and a woollen dress for the evenings. The Emerald Isle can be incredibly kind to its visitors and the continental Christmas market in Belfast is a hub of activity even when snow falls over Donegall’s Square and all the iconic buildings there.

If you are lucky enough to be in County Sligo for your winter holiday, then a stroll along the Strandhill Beach with the Knocknarea Mountains looming in the background is a must. The calm, tranquil and frosty waters match perfectly with the numbingly cold winter air, and you will be very glad you packed so carefully all your warm and practical clothing in the suitcase.
