Time in Ireland
The exact time in Ireland is based on the time zones for Ireland. We will always try to give you the exact time for Ireland. There might be slight differences, since the time zones for Ireland might change due to daylight savings time (DST).
Time changes in Ireland are usually done to adapt citizen and tourist activity to the solar cycle. This allows for greater usage of daylight, reducing dependency on electricity. That is why the time is sent ahead one hour in the spring for Ireland, and falls back one hour in the fall for Ireland. Adding an extra hour of daylight helps Ireland to improve its tourism and depend less on Ireland's electricity supplies.
