    Generally, summer is best because of warmer usually) weather and plethora of summer events and festivals. Of course, it's also busy and expensive. Go in the shoulder seasons (late September-October; February to late March) for the best shot at sale airline fares and better hotel availability. Time your trip with a big event like St. Patrick's Day or the annual Six Nations rugby tournament and you're guarantee a festive time. And let's be honest, the craic in Dublin is legendary whatever the time of year, whatever the weather's like outside!

    Think I can help as I am Scottish! Don't worry a bit about culture shock; in fact, you'll probably notice a lot of similarities between Canada and both Scotland and Ireland in terms of heritage and culture. It's not a great exchange rate between Canadian dollars and pounds/euros right now, so I think your biggest shock will be prices. That aside, you'll enjoy the hospitality and the great variety of things to see and do. Fairly long flight for you (I'm assuming through Toronto), so try get some sleep on the overnight flight and then avoid napping your first day in-country, opting instead for an early night so you can hit the ground running and ward off the worst effects of jet lag. Other stuff? Plan for rainy, overcast weather during at least some of your trip, so pack accordingly. Pack comfortable shoes, too, as you'll probably be doing plenty of walking and/or riding public transport.
