What to wear around Cork area in the mid July?

I do know that Ireland's weather is like a lady's mood - unpredictable, but still can someone give me a general idea what to wear /bring when traveling around Cork in the mid of July? Shorts, long pants, long sleeves, short sleeves, dress, or no dress?

Our weather is notoriously unpredictable - to the point that you can have four seasons in one day!. Layers are the way to go generally, so a vest top/t-shirt, cardigan and light jacket for example. It always pays to have an umbrella or rain slicker to hand. I would suggest a mix of long pants in light to mid fabrics (you don't need winter pants), skirts/dresses, possibly a pair of shorts or two if room allows, the aforementioned vests/t-shirts, cardigans, light jumpers etc. It shouldn't get TOO cold (famous last words!) but it will get cooler in the evenings.

If you plan on visiting the Cork castle to kiss the Blarney stone, don't wear a dress. They flip you backwards to kiss the stone.
So wear pants or some sort of leggings. :)
