Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Ireland Snow Conditions

@8611, I'm near Portrush on N Coast and have a clear view across to the Innishowen Penninsula. Slieve Snaght looks pretty loaded. The Antrim hills to the East also have a good covering. The vis was so good today we could see the snow covered tops of Aran behind the Mull of Kintyre.

Word seems to have got out on social media and alot of people about on the Antrim Hills.

Good to hear people getting out. Clear day good for the soul in the current circumstances too I think.

I was back in the Antrim Hills today. Glenravel/ Glenarrif. Surprisingly good snow. I did a walking loop of 16 Km between 200m and 350m. Lovely snow the whole way round! Wish I had the touring skis now!

That's mad, not a sniff of snow in Galway until around 600m and then only a little bit. Lugnaquilla in Wicklow looks plastered from that facebook page so hope to get up it at some point next week, without skis first. 5k travel limit in the Republic won't make that easy.

@8611, I was in the Sperrins today. Not as much as the Antrim Hills despite their slight altitude advantage. I only got to around 400m and there was a sprinkling. Cover above 500m though.

Got to Seefin 620m in South Dublin today. Plenty snow higher up. Access roads very poor from the South.

Not sure how much downhill skiing would be viable, but you could certainly ski tour across the tops of the Dublin mountains, over to Kippure or West over Seefingan and above the firing range. Saw a video of lads skiing down North side of Kippure, proper skiing.

A spin over the tops of the mountains above Sally Gap toward Wicklow Gap would definitely be viable too.

All of this is making me rue not having touring skis.

In the meantime here are some Donegal lads enjoying Errigal - great mountain with a class summit ridge:

Got to the top of kippure (757m) just 5 days after that post and apart from a few tiny pockets of snow it was all gone. You clearly have to grab your window quick, which I didn't.

Talk of snow today higher up in Wicklow and then later in the North and West of the country, anyone any updates or get anything done?

Decent snowfall overnight, south side of Dublin mountains around Seehan had a nice whitening, but not realistically skiable. This was at around 500m. Cloud was in so couldn't see further over to the Wicklow side but I suspect more up high there and due to be cold next few days so should keep.
