When planning a vacation during the winter months, Ireland is likely not the first place that comes to mind. With its reputation for being cold and rainy throughout the year, the winter seems like the least desirable time to visit.
Let's get this one out of the way. San Diego is the textbook example of beautiful year-round climate. It's never too hot and never too cold, with a very minimal amount of that pesky California fog to get in the way--when it does roll in, it burns off pretty quickly in the morning.
