Car Rental Dublin Airport

As soon as you land in Dublin Airport, the Irish Car Rentals expert team will be the first to welcome you and help start your adventure in Dublin or further afield. We have three rental desks at Dublin Airport — Terminal 1, Terminal 2 and at Eastlands car rental depot (just a quick free shuttle bus trip from the terminals). At the airport Irish Car Rentals customers are served at the Europcar desk, who supply our diverse and flexible fleet of cars, SUVs and people carriers, both manual and automatic. We are growing our range of hybrid and electric car rental options. Your car of choice will be among the latest models available, so you can drive in comfort and luxury to Dublin city centre.

Buzz on both sides of the Liffey

Whether you’re a first-time visitor or a regular, if you’re in Dublin on business or on holiday, Dublin city centre is always a buzz — especially by car. Get behind the wheel and cross the many Liffey bridges along the Quays, and take in the wonderful sights and sounds. Dublin city’s top attractions are all a short drive apart, barely a mile from either side of the Liffey.

Just north of the river, Ireland’s most famous boulevard, O’Connell Street is home to the historic GPO, the site of the 1916 Easter Rising, as well as the 121-metre Spire. Also on the Northside, the Old Jameson Distillery is a celebration of the famous Irish whiskey, while you can catch a GAA match at Croke Park, or the world’s biggest acts at the 3Arena concert venue.

On the Southside, drive through grand Georgian streets and red brick terraces on the way to St Stephen’s Green, Trinity College to see the priceless Book of Kells, the National Gallery or the Guinness Storehouse. Just over the decorative cast iron Hal’penny Bridge, Temple Bar is one of the world’s most celebrated cultural and nightlife districts, where every doorway is an art gallery, a boutique store, a quirky restaurant or a pub with live traditional and contemporary music all day, into the night. It’s the district that never sleeps.

Drive the Dublin Coast

Away from the boisterous bustle of the city centre, within minutes you can explore some of Ireland’s most rewarding scenery along Dublin’s coastline. It’s the hub of Ireland’s Ancient East, with winding roads opening into stunning seascapes and quaint, vibrant villages. Thousands of visitors, from Ireland and abroad, flock to Howth and Malahide to the north, and Dalkey and Killiney to the south, to soak in the easygoing vibes, stroll along the picturesque promenades and indulge in the sumptuous seafood at local restaurants and pubs. It’s a gift of natural beauty on Dublin’s doorstep. Book your car rental Dublin Airport directly.
