The west coast of the country is also experiences high winds on a par with Scotland and Norway. Summer days are long and snow often falls in mountainous areas in the winter. The gentle coastlines of east part of the Ireland contrast with the rugged west coast which have some of the highest sea cliffs in Europe.
