Your car rental in Ireland will allow you to explore its capital, Dublin. Considered one of the world’s hottest metropolises, Dublin is an ideal base for your holiday. Between pubs where to taste the famous Guinness that is the pride of the whole country, the rugby matches with the unique euphoria in the Croke Park stadium and its dozens of monuments where to discover the historical and cultural heritage of the city, like the castle Dublin, the cultural legacy of writer James Joyce or Christ Church Cathedral, the capital of Ireland, offers a wealth of tourism opportunities. The highlight of the city is Trinity College Dublin, the oldest university on the island. In the evening, head to the Temple Bar area for a few local beers and enjoy the pub vibe.
Connemara National Park
Book a car rental to discover the famous Connemara National Park that has inspired one of Michel Sardou’s most famous songs (Connemaraaaaaa!). Here is spread over almost two thousand hectares, a sublime and wild landscape where rare species live and protected wildlife, such as the deer or the famous pony of the region, in addition there graze hordes of sheep. Hiking enthusiasts will be able to have fun in the many trails that cross the park and even afford the ascent of Twelve Bens.
The small town of Galway is a perfect in-between, between urban life and the postcard decor, and is placed on the sea and on the banks of the Corrib River, feet in the water. Park your car in Ireland to get some sea air or take a walk along the river, in one of the colorful boats that can be seen at the port. Important monuments are not missing either: the Notre-Dame cathedral, the university or the Eyre Square are all important places to visit on site.
Make your way with your car rental on the third largest city in the country: Limerick. Nestled on the western side of the island, on the shores of the beautiful Shannon River, it is the most “arty” (avant-garde) city in all of Ireland. Museum lovers will therefore be able to rent a car for a walk from galleries to exhibitions, starting with the Hunt Museum or the city museum, which hides a beautiful collection of self-portraits. The Gaelic culture is also very present and besides the presence of a beautiful cathedral Anglican, the place would be the scene of many Arthurian legends. What to take in all the magic of Ireland!
Cliffs of Moher
Then head towards County Clare to explore the different castles that cover the landscape (Doonagore, Craggaunowen, Ballinalacken and O’Dea). You will ride along the cliffs of Moher (Cliffs of Moher) near Burren. These typical postcard cliffs sent from this region suddenly fall into the ocean and are dressed in a flamboyant green hat! It is not far from here that you will be able to admire the famous dolmen of Ireland, or to offer a small bouquet of blue flowers of wild gentians, which remains the symbol of the region. This is a very nice place of almost three hundred meters that you will reach by booking a car rental in Ireland.
Ring of Kerry
“A ring to govern them all” is a little slogan that could be offered the Ring of Kerry as it is touristy. This incredible landscape of nearly two hundred kilometers, accessible with a car rental in Ireland, forms a beautiful loop conducive to hiking, in a very green scenery, stung many lakes and even small mountains that we can climb to enjoy a breathtaking panorama of Killarney Park. There are also nice monuments, such as Muckross Abbey.
Finally, in the south of the country lies the city of Cork, with the second largest port in the country. A car rental can take you there but it can also start there, because of the ferries that, since Roscoff in Brittany, make regular trips during the spring and summer. This is an opportunity to go for a walk on the docks or attend the Cork Jazz Festival! Nine kilometers away is Blarney Castle, dating back to the 15th century, which is particularly popular with tourists because its battlements are incorporated with the Stone of Eloquence which gives the gift of Atticism to those who kiss it upside down ! To you contortions!
