Time in the Republic of Ireland

Time (Ireland) Act 1916

Ireland uses Irish Standard Time (IST, UTC+01:00; Am Caighdeánach Éireannach) in the summer months and Greenwich Mean Time (UTC+00:00; Meán-Am Greenwich) in the winter period.

Seán Kelly, MEP, has been lobbying to end the bi-annual clock change in the EU, but is in favour of Ireland adopting year round summertime or Central European Time instead of its present, closer to solar time, Western European Time.
