Join the Irish Weather Network

The Irish Weather Network (IWN) is always looking for new members to contribute their data to the network. Our goal is to have the single most comprehensive view of weather conditions across Ireland and Northern Ireland. If you are a personal weather station owner / operator, please let us know and we will consider adding you to our network. We are especially looking for stations in the more remote parts of our service area.

System requirements: Contributors must of course have a personal weather station and that station must be connected to the Internet and continually updating to a website. At the current time, we can pull data from users of Weather Display, WeatherLink ,Virtual Weather Station and Cumulus. To view instructions on how to configure these software programs to work with the IWN, please click here. If you meet these requirements and would like to join, please complete the form below. If you have any questions, please contact us.
