Dublin City by Rental Car

Dublin city is filled with impressive architecture, not to mention the famous cobbled lanes of Temple Bar area in the heart of the city.  The River Liffey separates the city into North and South.  Take your rental car into North County Dublin to explore the peninsula of Howth Head.  After a day of walking the shoreline, enjoy fine cuisine in Howth town, or return to the city center and sample one of the multitude of restaurants or be entertained by street performers. 

The rich, colourful Irish history awaits in attractions such as Dublin Castle, Christ Church Cathedral, the National Museum of Ireland and, for art lovers, the National Gallery of Ireland.  You could visit Phoenix Park to take a walk in the grounds and visit Dublin Zoo.  Are you in the mood for shopping?  Park your rental car at Irelands biggest shopping mall, Dundrum Town Centre, for shopping, movies, restaurants and more.

After all that activity, you’ll need some pampering.  There are many spa hotels and salons in Dublin.  If your idea of relaxation is a full round on the golf course, Ireland has many world class venues, such as the K-Club, where the Ryder Cup was played in 2006.  To reach it, take your hire car just 30km through some of Irelands most magical countryside.   

Get into the wilds in your car rental.

A car hire at Dublin Airport Car Rental gives you the freedom to make exciting daytrips.  Here are just a few, all within an hours drive of the city center.

Driving South takes you to Wicklow, the “Garden of Ireland”, through Glendalough, a glacial valley, where you can explore the monastic history of Ireland.  The view as you drive along the valley rim, looking down on the lakes below, is a classic panorama of Irish countryside.  Relax with a meal and handmade shopping in Avoca Handweavers on your way back to the city.

Another day trip in your rental car takes you west to Meath and the Hill of Tara, the former seat of the High Kings of Ireland.  The thrill of driving through leafy green back-roads that wind through rolling valleys dotted with grazing sheep is an experience unique to Ireland and not to be missed.

When your stay in Dublin is over, Dublin Airport Car Rental helps to ease your sadness by allowing you to conveniently return your rental car and go directly to your flight.  There are no buses or taxis to worry about meaning that, from start to finish, your time in Ireland is at your own pace.
