Montreal, Canada to Dublin is an approximately 10- hour flight. You'll lose 5 hours traveling from Montreal to Dublin due to the time zone difference. Prepare for a bit cooler weather when traveling from Montreal in August: high temperatures in Dublin hover around 22°C and lows are around 12°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 12th (Wed) early enough to drive to Liscannor.
