Sunny Southeast

The southeast of the island of Ireland is known as the “Sunny Southeast” thanks to its sunny weather and pleasant ocean breezes.  A tour of the Sunny Southeast in your Waterford Airport car hire from Hertz begins in Waterford city.  Take in some city sights including the Waterford Crystal Factory and Showrooms, Waterford Treasures Museum and Reginalds Tower.  Travel east towards Wexford; you will tour through one beautiful fishing village on the water after another.  See the Wexford Keys, then scenic car hire driving through the Slaney Valley and Vale of Avoca. 

Stop in for a Guinness at a local pub and ask where the nearest Avoca Handweavers store is, where you can pick up organic products and handmade clothing with a distinctly Celtic feel.  Approaching the capital, Dublin, you will travel through the “Garden of Ireland”, County Wicklow, and Glendalough.  Spend a morning strolling through the woods, visit Powerscourt House and Gardens, then climb into the hills and look down on Powerscourt Waterfall, with views for miles across the landscape and out over the ocean.

Luckily, most Waterford Airport car rental companies will allow you to return your car hire in Waterford; or to a different drop off location, usually in another major city.  You may decide to end your rental car road trip in Dublin; before dropping off the keys, visit Howth Village and Dollymount Strand.  Then spend a couple of days on foot through the historic centre of Dublin.  On a sunny day eat a picnic in the grounds of Trinity College and see the Book of Kells in the breathtaking library on campus.
