Car Rental Dublin Vehicles

Dublin Airport serves as the first step for many travelling to Ireland, particularly those traveling from the United States and United Kingdom. Its direct road links to so many major destinations ensures that wherever you need to be, you’re never more than a few hours’ drive away.

Hiring a car to tour Ireland has been a popular vacation for years. The Ireland’s tourism authorities have lent a helping hand by marking and promoting driving routes that allow visitors to maximize their time and experience.

Presented here are two of Ireland’s most popular driving tours in :

The Wild Atlantic Way

Ireland’s premier touring route, Wild Atlantic Way is a 2500 kilometres of untamed, unspoiled countryside that follows along Ireland’s Atlantic shores. This driving tour features 157 discovery points, and over 3500 attractions and activities.

Beginning in Kinsale, Co. Cork, and follows a signed route that takes you around the spectacular coastal roads, this route has proved extremely popular with our car hire customers.

When you are heading towards the West in your car from Dublin Airport, you’ll encounter Dingle, the Ring of Kerry and the North Kerry Head peninsulas, considered to be some of Ireland’s most outstanding countryside.

Take the cable car to Dursey Island as the night draws in and you can experience ‘Europe’s last sunset’, 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.

Cliffs of Moher

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, you’ll soon find Ireland’s northernmost county, Donegal. Here, Europe’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 realize the car hire experience was truly worth it.

With our detailed road trip itineraries, it’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 Ireland’s Ancient East allows you to journey through the history, myths, and legends that helped forge Ireland’s reputation as a land of magic and wonder.

Ireland’s Ancient East is a new ‘touring region’ 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.

Ireland’s Ancient East has no set touring route, it’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.
