Car hire in Dublin

Car rental in Dublin is easy.
For anyone looking to explore beyond the city centre, renting a car will open up the city’s hinterland.

You can choose from all of the major international rental companies and some local options too but do your research beforehand to get the best rate for your needs. For shorter stints, a couple of companies in Dublin offer car sharing.

Be sure to check the vehicle properly before driving away and remember that all companies will charge extra if you drop the car off in a different place to where you picked it up.

Remember to greet passing drivers on small country roads (it’s pretty much obligatory, though sometimes a raised thumb will do) – and don’t forget to stick to the left-hand side at all times!
