Location information for Dublin

By far the largest city in Ireland, Dublin is the cultural, financial, and political centre of the country. The city is cloaked in history, but still manages to radiate a vibrant, modern persona. Driving in and around the city will get tourists to Dublin's landmarks faster, so compare car hire prices and deals before arrival to save money.



Dublin International Airport is in the northern reaches of the city, and is Ireland's main gateway. Public transportation in Dublin is not great, but it's improving with each passing year. Walking is still the preferred option for sightseeing the centre of town, while exploring the countryside surrounding the city is only attainable by car hire in Dublin.

Car Hire Dublin

There are plenty of beautiful counties that surround Dublin, so having access to a private vehicle is recommended for tourists. The scenic drives to places like Meath and Kildare are worth the trip alone. Car rental in Dublin is becoming more popular due to its reliability and affordability. Suppliers in the city include Budget, Hertz, Sixt and Advantage.


Avoid driving in the city centre altogether as traffic can be tight throughout Dublin. Roads outside the downtown districts of the city are more open and inviting for travelling. They are generally safe and in great condition. Annoying parking issues in the city are not a problem in the outer areas of Dublin.

Things To See and Do

Head to County Meath, just 45kms away from Dublin, to view an impressive display of megalithic tombs. Tourists who enjoy the outdoors should head directly to Wicklow, which boasts some of the most breathtaking landscapes in Ireland, hence its nickname the ‘Garden of Ireland'. Also, Howth is a great spot close to the city, at only 14kms from the capital.

Best Time To Visit

Anytime of the year is fine to visit Dublin, as the city boasts a relatively stable climate and temperature between 14°C and 17°C. However, the summer months of May through to August are more conducive for travelling than December to February, when daytime temperatures are only about 3C.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
