Navan Car Rental Location
Navan lies in the Boyne River valley immediately off of the M3 in the centre of County Meath. This city is growing rapidly, as more and more Dubliners opt to live here and commute to work on a daily basis. From touristsâ€™ perspective, Navan is an ideal base from which to explore sightseeing attractions in the Dublin area.
The Irish Car Rentals Navan depot lies on Academy Street, which can be reached from R147 while driving northbound for the city centre. Bus Ă‰reann operates service from Dublin to Navan, and buses take about an hour to arrive. Passengers are let off within ten minutesâ€™ walk of the depot at St Josephâ€™s Mercy Convent. After picking up your hire car, you can stop by Maxol petrol station on Academy Street to fuel up.
The only other viable means of getting around the city is by taxi. Bear in mind that a moderate fare costs as much as a dayâ€™s rental, so those planning on doing any amount of commuting around the city or exploring the countryside are well-advised to hire a car, save on taxi fares and enjoy the freedom of coming and going as you please.
If you have a hire car in Navan, consider exploring Mullingar and Drogheda. These two towns have their own selection of attractions, and theyâ€™re easy to reach by car.
Mullingar (52 km south-west of Navan via the N1 and N52) Mullingarâ€™s lakes â€“ Lough Lene, Lough Ennel and Lough Owen â€“ are open to anglers, and rods and tackle can be rented on site. Greyhound races are hosted here, but the townâ€™s biggest claim to fame is its mention in James Joyceâ€™s Finnegans Wake and Ulysses. If possible, come on a Sunday to enjoy the weekly farmersâ€™ market.
Drogheda (26 km north-east of Navan via the N51) Drogheda lies on Irelandâ€™s east coast at the confluence of the River Boyne and holds a clutch of historic buildings. Five kilometres to the east, BrĂş Na BĂłinne Archaeological Park is the main attraction. Stay the night, and enjoy the towns restaurant and pub scene, then drive out to the park the following day to take in Newgrange passage tomb.
