Car rental can be arranged in advance of your holiday, leaving you free to pick up your car from Dublin airport on arrival and get straight to the heart of Dublin. It also allows you to explore the Irish seaside and countryside beyond the capital city.
In under an hour you could take a scenic drive over the spectacular mountains to reach Glendalough, County Wicklow’s spectacularly beautiful lakes. The serenity and natural beauty here will enthral and captivate you. To get back to Dublin you can opt for the flatter, quicker motorway route home.
A drive south along the coast near Dublin offers you romantic seascapes and charming villages where you can find cafes, marinas and piers to explore at your leisure. Killiney is said to resemble the Bay of Naples and the promenade at Bray, or the coastal walk to Greystones, offers fantastic views over the Irish sea.
