Car Hire Ireland

Ireland is separated from the rest of the UK by the North Sea. There is plenty of history in Ireland, from the amazing ruins of Clonmacnoise and Glendalough to Bru na Boinne’s breathtaking prehistoric sites. While travelling with friends or family, one of the most comfortable and affordable ways to explore this island steeped in folklore, myth and legend is to use car hire in Ireland.

Firstly, Ireland comprises much more than its famed capital of Dublin. The Ring of Kerry is a circular tourist route that is over a hundred and eleven miles long in County Kerry in the country’s southwest. It is the most diverse of the big circle drives in Ireland with villages, emerald pastures and beautiful coastal scenery.

You can reach this spectacular place in less than five hours by car from Dublin. If you are someone who likes visiting offbeat places, do not miss going to the ancient and mystic Aran Islands. The Aran Islands are located about three hundred kilometres from Dublin.
