Climate Data & Products

Historical climate data sets for our synoptic stations are available to download here. Long term daily series of precipitation, temperature and other elements together with time series plots are available from the European Climate Assessment & Dataset website. ECA&D is initiated by the European Climate Support Network ECSN, and is supported by the Network of European Meteorological Services EUMETNET.

All climate data recorded at our stations are supplied free of charge if requested under the Access to Information on the Environment Regulations (AIE).

You are required to:

  • Submit an application to our AIE Officer, by email to or in writing to AIE Officer, Met Éireann, Glasnevin Hill, Dublin 9

Our database has a large amount of information available from our Synoptic, Climate and Rainfall stations.

  • Synoptic stations record meteorological elements on an hourly basis, such as air temperature, rainfall, wind speed, wind direction, atmospheric pressure, relative humidity, vapour pressure and soil temperatures. Manual stations have extra elements such as weather, cloud, visibility and sunshine. Estimated daily evaporation, potential evapotranspiration and soil moisture deficits are also available.
  • Climatological stations record meteorological elements on a daily basis, such as rainfall and temperatures. Some record soil and earth temperatures, sunshine, solar radiation and evaporation.
  • Rainfall stations record daily rainfall amounts at 0900utc.
We can supply data via E-mail, Fax, post, FTP, CD ROM. Once we have your Order Form, we can supply you with a quote of the cost, if requested. If you know exactly what you need, and supply your payment details, we can begin your request immediately. Prepayment is required before requests are processed. Payment may be made by Visa, Mastercard, cheque, postal order, bank draft or purchase order number for regular customers. Some of the Climate and Rainfall stations do not have a complete unbroken record for any given element. Most data before 1941 are held in paper format only. From 1941 onwards most of our data are held in tables in an Ingres relational database. Climate data may not be reproduced, re-used or redistributed for any commercial purpose whatsoever, or distributed to a third party, without written permission from Met Éireann.
