With its delightful landscapes and quiet roads, Ireland almost demands car rental to take advantage of all it offers. Enfield’s enviable location makes it an ideal starting point for your road trip as it lies on the main motorway that connects Dublin in the east to Galway in the west. What’s more with the M50 Dublin circular just 20 miles away you can very quickly connect to the fastest routes north and south.
As one might expect of Ireland’s capital city, Dublin offers a Park and Ride service to those wanting to visit the city without the hassle of taking the car itself into the city centre. From Enfield it’s possible to be at the Luas Red Cow Park and Ride station in just 25 minutes where you can hop onto a tram into the city centre.
Located as you are on the main route from Dublin to the west coast, it’s possible to reach the city of Galway, often referred to as Ireland's Cultural Heart, in around an hour and a half in your rental car.
Once there, as well as this lively city itself, you will also discover Connemara, the peninsula of Western Galway, which is considered one of the world’s most beautiful places. Home as well to Kylemore Abbey, one of Ireland’s most delightful estates, this achingly rugged and frequently boggy landscape, with its rich abundance of glorious fauna has long been a source of inspiration, with Oscar Wilde having once described it as possessing a ‘savage beauty’.
