RTE is the name of the TV channel with the broadcasting rights to the Winter Olympics 2018. But, do you know the name of any Irish athlete that will participate in the Winter Olympics 2018? I don’t! Why is that important? The people of Ireland has little to no interest in the Winter Olympics, due to the fact that they have no famous athletes participating. The result is, therefore, people are not interested in watching the broadcasts. So, even though RTE has the rights to air the event, they will probably only air summaries from the happenings, and maybe a few events live. I am not sure about this, but that is at least what I expect to happen.

RTE is a free channel, and you can watch RTE in your hotel room, in pubs and also on the Internet. But, what should you do if you want to watch the Winer Olympics online, all the events, all the competitions, and it cannot be done on RTE? In this article in the IP Address Guide, you will find instructions on how to watch the Winter Olympics 2018 online, so I recommend for you to read the article, and hopefully, it will help you out!

What kind of weather to expect in Dublin in February?

As you come to Dublin in February, do not expect snow. You can expect some wind, some rain, but you will most likely not meet any snow at all.

We hope you will have a pleasant stay in Dublin during the Winter Olympics!


How can I watch the Winter Olympics live online in Ireland?

I’ll be heading of to Ireland and to Dublin next week and I would really like to watch the Winter Olympics. But, as far as I can see RTE will not broadcast from the Winter Olympics. So, what can I do to be able to watch the Winter games live online?

BBC in the UK will broadcast a whole lot from the WInter Olympics, so if you stay in a hotel which has BBC Two among the channels available, then make sure to take a look at that, because there you will find a whole lot of goodies. If that does not work for you, then you can watch BBC2 in online, but you do need to have a UK IP address for that to work. That can easily be done, and you can read more about getting yourself a UK IP address here. Once you have that, feel free to enjoy and to watch the Winter Olympics.
