Whether you're planning on touring Ireland's major cities like Dublin and Cork, or would prefer to experience the Emerald Isle off the beaten path, there are countless breathtaking drivings in Ireland that are just waiting to be explored.
The lush green landscape of Ireland awaits you when you travel by rental car, and your gateways to some of the best cities in the world, like Dublin and Galway, are just a convenient and scenic drive away!
When traveling in Ireland for the first time, spending time in the coastal city of Dublin is a must. Dublin is an international city that incorporates both classic and modern Irish culture. Guinness beer is never in short supply in this city, and you'll have your choice among hundreds of bars, pubs, and restaurants to indulge in. But when it's time to experience Irish life outside the hubbub of Dublin, the quaint, inland city of Cork is only 220 km away. When you travel along the M7 and M8 routes from Dublin, you can be to Cork in 3 hours or less. You can enjoy the city center of Cork on an island wedged right in the River Lee, and during the journey from Dublin, you can bask in the breathtaking sights of the Irish countryside, as well as the Silvermine and Galty mountain ranges.
The harbour city of Galway offers fresh views of the North Atlantic Ocean amidst a quaint, homey city center. If you wish to see both the Northern Atlantic coast as well as the channel of water between Ireland and England, then you'll want to also visit the city of Waterford (Port Láirge). Port Láirge and Galway are 172 km apart, and when you travel across the M6 route, you can see the Shannon Basin, as well as the Silvermines and Wicklow mountain ranges, with an arrival to Port Láirge in just 3 hours!
While Ireland's major port cities are truly necessary to the Irish experience, the country is composed of dozens of wonderful towns and villages that offer an even more authentic experience. Ireland is a country that should be experienced outside of its major cities, and the easiest and most optimal way to do so is traveling by rental car.
