Driving Routes - The best way to explore Ireland's beautiful landscape

Ireland, although small in size, has so much to offer in terms of beauty, history, culture and activities. The rugged landscape is both beautiful and diverse as every turn uncovers a magnificently different view. History that stretches back millenia can be found throughout the Irish countryside. With so much on offer and varying locations it's best to discover Ireland via car. If you arrive at Dublin Airport you'll be close by to many major roadways which have excellent connections to the rest of the country.

You could travel north of Dublin to County Meath and explore the historic Boyne Valley which is home to over 5000 years of history including a fascinating megalithic tomb that predates the Egyptian Pyramids. This is also the area where St. Patrick, Ireland's patron Saint, began spreading the christian faith and you'll find grand abbeys, round towers and the ruins of several monasteries.

If you find yourself in County Galway you could visit the picturesque coastal town of Clifden where you'll find the Sky Road, an 11 kilometre circular route that takes you high above sea level where you’ll find beautiful views of Clifden Bay and its offshore islands, crashing waves of the Atlantic and a wonderful view over Connemara, easily one of the most beautiful regions in the country.

Further south in County Kerry you’ll find the famous Ring of Kerry. This coastal route is 144km of true bliss that will bring you on a journey of discovery through 10,000 years of history, rugged and majestic landscapes overlooking the crashing waters of the Atlantic Ocean. Other than beautiful scenery and a fascinating history you’ll find traditional music, Kerry hospitality and the world famous Irish craic.

The Wild Atlantic Way

The Wild Atlantic Way is the longest defined coastal driving route in the world and stretches from the northern heights of Donegal along the beautiful west coast to West Cork in the south. This 2,500km route will help you uncover some of the most majestic views Ireland has to offer while stopping at some of the top attractions such as the Cliffs of Moher and the Connemara region.

The goal of this route is to bring the stunningly raw beauty of the west coast to the forefront of Irish tourism. There are over 150 discovery points along the route and each boasts a unique allure. The route is carefully planned to link destinations and attractions, giving visitors the chance to explore the land, engage in outdoor sports and bask in traditional culture. The route links with walking paths, cycling routes and discovery points giving drivers as many reasons to get out of the car as they have to drive on.

Whether you’re planning on touring the entire Wild Atlantic Way or just a section along the way, we are on hand to provide great value car rental at various locations along the route including Cork City, Cork Airport, Kerry Airport, Shannon Airport, Galway City and Ireland West Knock Airport.
