Get out in the great green lung of the Irish countryside with a break in the small but beautiful village of Ashford in County Wicklow.
While remote, this rustic little village is nevertheless well connected to Ireland’s major road networks, meaning that renting a car is the best way to get here and to get about once you are here. Ashford is conveniently situated on the chuckling waters of the River Vartry, at the convergence of the R763, R764 and R772 roads.
Renting a car is essential in this remote area of Ireland, which has earned the nickname ‘The Garden of Ireland’ thanks to its varied and unspoiled flora and fauna. Reserve your car rental online today and you can pick it up at Dublin Airport as soon as your flight arrives. It’s only an hour’s drive from Dublin to Ashford via the M50 and N11 roads.
Known as the Great Sugar Loaf due to its sugar coated appearance, this large hill is a short drive in your rental car from Ashford and makes for wonderful walking and fantastic scenic photo opportunities. Although by no means the largest hill in the region, its flat green surrounds give it an imposing prominence. You can easily drive here in your rental car from Ashford via the N11 road, or the rural R755 and R764 routes.
