An Irish summer is a time of long, warm days and short, cool nights. The sun shines brightly in the sky, and the air is filled with the sound of birdsong. The countryside is lush and green, and the flowers are in bloom. People enjoy spending time outdoors, swimming in the sea, hiking in the mountains, or simply relaxing in the sun. Irish summers are a time for family and friends to come together and enjoy each other’s company. They are a time to make memories that will last a lifetime.

Summer is a special time indeed in the Emerald Isle. Whether you are a first time visitor or just want to brush up on your Gaeilge, here are a few words in Irish about Summer.
