Car Tours from Navan
Navan is far enough outside of Dublin to significantly diminish public transport options. If you hire a car in Navan, you’ll be able to explore the whole of County Meath at your leisure, without having to worry with public transport schedules, expensive taxi fares or crowded package tours. In so many words, private transport is essential to the visitor experience in County Meath.
There’s not much to see and do in Navan city proper. Dubliners come here for the extensive shopping options, but this is less attractive for tourists and other visitors. Indeed, Navan’s most attractive feature is that it provides car hire for exploring County Meath.
Don’t let Navan’s workaday atmosphere mislead you—County Meath is chocked full of incredible sites and attractions. The prehistoric sites of the Boyne Valley are world-class and one-of-a-kind. Just a few minutes’ drive from Navan city centre delivers drivers to Brú na Bóinne visitor’s centre, the gateway to millennia-old passage tombs and stone circles.
Likewise, you can easily hire a car in Navan and quickly connect to smaller, historic towns brimming with charm and charisma. The towns of Trim and Kells are tourism headliners, but you can just as easily stop by quaint B&Bs and self-catering cottages in the countryside that provide an ideal base from which to explore the countryside immediately outside of Dublin.
For those arriving in Navan from elsewhere in Ireland, it’s easy to hire a car. Buses from elsewhere drop passengers at St Joseph’s Mercy Convent. From here, it’s only 10 minutes’ walk to the car rental depot on Academy Street. Taxis and other modes of public transport also connect here.
