Driving Routes in Ireland

There are almost 140 signposted driving routes in Ireland that will guide you through some beautiful places. With a rental car, everything from the 2500km long Wild Atlantic Way to the more achievable 225km Boyne Valley Route with 5,000 years of history to explore is on the agenda.

The Wild Atlantic Way

The Wild Atlantic Way is a 2,500 km route that travels along the West Coast of Ireland from County Donegal in the North to County Cork in the South. The Lonely Planet describes the Wild Atlantic Way “as an easy to navigate route where drivers can stop and learn about the must-sees and lesser-known diversions of this fascinating area.”

Whether you plan to tackle the entire route, or want to drive different sections, CARHIRE.ie offers six rental depots along the Wild Atlantic Way including Cork City, Cork Airport, Kerry Airport, Shannon Airport, Galway City and Ireland West Knock Airport. This means you can pick up a hire car at any one of these locations and do segments of the Wild Atlantic Way>

When driving the route, it makes sense to do it from South to North rather than the advertised North to South, to ensure you are driving on the side of the road closest to the sea. In addition, driving the route this way makes it easier to pull over and take in the views. For comfort CARHIRE.ie recommends you rent a medium sized car, preferably with diesel fuel.

Optional Services & Products

When you rent a car from CARHIRE.ie, there are a number of additional products and services you can avail of. These include items such as child safety seats, GPS Navigation system, additional drivers and cancellation cover which covers you in the case you need to cancel your rental. These optional services and products are available for your convenience.
