Dublin Airport Car Hire
Dublin Airport serves as the first step for many travelling to Ireland, particularly those traveling from the United States. Its direct road links to so many major destinations in the Emerald Isle ensure that wherever you need to be, youâ€™re never more than a few hoursâ€™ drive away.
Hiring a car to tour Ireland has been a popular vacation for years. So, to capitalise on that, Irelandâ€™s tourism authorities have lent a helping hand by marking and promoting various driving routes that allow visitors to maximise their time and experience as much of the land as possible. Presented here are two of Irelandâ€™s most popular driving tours:
The Wild Atlantic Way
Irelandâ€™s premier touring route, is a 2500 kilometres of untamed, unspoilt countryside that follows along Irelandâ€™s Atlantic shores. This driving tour features 157 discovery points, and over 3500 attractions and activities, from its begin in Kinsale, Co. Cork, and follows a suggested route that takes you around the spectacular coastal roads. This route has proved extremely popular with our Car Hire Dublin Airport.
When you are heading towards the West in your car from Dublin Airport, youâ€™ll encounter Dingle, the Ring of Kerry and the North Kerry Head peninsulas, considered to be some of Irelandâ€™s most outstanding countryside. Take the cable car to Dursey Island as the night draws in and you can experience â€˜Europeâ€™s last sunsetâ€™, as you are as west as you can go before you reach America.
In Co. Clare, the magnificent Cliffs of Moher, the mysterious Aran Islands, and some remarkable views of the mouth of the River Shannon, from Loop Head Lighthouse, bring visitors from all over, regardless of the weather or the time of year.
The Connemara Loop and lively Galway City await you in Co. Galway. On the southern Connemara beaches, you may even see the famous ponies making their way across low tide to the distant islands beyond.
In Co. Mayo, the awesome sight of Croagh Patrick mountain looms over the surrounding countryside, and you can take a road bridge to Achill Island and visit its strange deserted village. Sligo seaside town is famous for its seafood and surfing, thanks to the waves off Mullaghmore Head.
Continuing north, youâ€™ll soon find Irelandâ€™s northernmost county, Donegal. Here, Europeâ€™s highest sea cliffs, known as Sliabh Laig, the enigmatic Tory Island, and the spectacular Five Finger Strand beach on the Irishtown peninsula can all be found. If you check the weather at the right time of year, Donegal can also be a fantastic setting from which to experience the aurora borealis which will make you realise the car hire experience was truly worth it.
Itâ€™s possible to complete the route in a week or two.
Ireland's Ancient East
Involving seventeen counties and over 5,000 years of history, touring Irelandâ€™s Ancient East allows you to journey through the history, myths and legends that helped forge Irelandâ€™s reputation as a land of magic and wonder.
Irelandâ€™s Ancient East is a new â€˜touring regionâ€™ that has proved popular with visitors, it features these unique areas:
The Land of 5000 Dawns includes the counties Cavan, Longford, Louth, Meath, Monaghan, and Westmeath. From the woodland trails of Belvedere House to the ancient passage tombs of Newgrange, history, myth and legend meet dramatically in nearly every valley or village. Also in the land of 5000 Dawns is much of the beautiful Boyne Valley, along with all the attractions and ancient sites it encompasses, some dating back as far as 3200BC.
Irelandâ€™s Ancient East has no set touring route, itâ€™s more of a collection themed driving routes, guided and self-guided walks, festivals, events and river tours designed to complement the existing heritage sites, buildings and monuments, and to allow a truly exceptional experience for all its visitors. If you are eager to see these routes and are coming from abroad, booking a car rental in Dublin Airport is a must for an experience you will never forget.
