Car hire in Ireland can be a little confusing should you cross the border between Northern Ireland and Eire (The Republic of Ireland) as in the former (which is part of the UK), distances are expressed in miles and speeds in mph, whereas kilometres are used in the latter. Apart from this hiring a car is a great way to get out and about and see the real Ireland.
Places to visit by means of car hire are varied in this destination. In the Republic of Ireland, consider a trip to Brú na Bóinne, an internationally renowned grouping of Neolithic standing stones, tombs, and henges. Another fabulous historical site is that of Skellig Michael Monastery, and Ireland lends itself to exploration by car rental as it is simply so astounding in its natural beauty. Places such as the Cliffs of Moher, Ring of Kerry and the Burren simply beg to be enjoyed at leisure, and the coves, islands, beaches and mountains of West Cork are all worthy of day trips.
Northern Ireland is equally blessed, with its North Coast and Giant’s Causeway, the Mourne Mountains and Fermanagh Lakelands being just some of the areas that will inspire on a road trip.
