Long term daily series of temperature and precipitation including four Irish meteorological stations together with time series plots are available from the European Climate Assessment & Dataset website.

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 and soil temperatures, rainfall, wind, pressure, weather, cloud, visibility, humidity, sunshine. Some have extra elements such as solar radiation, evaporation and soil moisture deficits.
  • Climate stations record meteorological elements on a daily basis, such as rainfall, maximum and minimum temperatures. Some record soil and earth temperatures, sunshine, solar radiation and evaporation.
  • There are approximately 550 Rainfall stations which record rainfall amounts on a daily basis.
We can supply data via E-mail, Fax, post, FTP, CD ROM and floppy disc. 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. Not all observed elements are available for the synoptic stations at Birr, Kilkenny, Mullingar and Clones, where some observations are automated. 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.
