As the raindrops dance their jig across our beautiful green hills, it's all too easy to stay inside with a hot cuppa. But why should a bit of rain stop your adventures? With the right waterproof trousers, you can face the Irish weather head-on and keep exploring. So let's look at the top 3 rain bottoms that'll help you make the most of any day, come rain or shine!
