Have you guessed?

We promise you you haven't guessed correctly. 

*drum roll*

Data has revealed that Dublin Airport had more sunshine than anywhere else in the country last year.

According to Met Eireann's Annual Weather Summary the airport basked in the rays of the sun for a total of 1,412 hours over the past 12 months.

Not too shabby.

The survey has also indicated that 2016 was the 17th hottest year since 1900.

The Met Eireann report says:

The stormy end of 2015 continued into early 2016, as the north Atlantic Jet Stream continued to steer windy, wet and yet very mild weather over Ireland during January and much of February.

So, there you have it. 

Let us know where you guessed in the comments!
