If you are visiting Dublin soon, it is a good idea to consider hiring a car. Hiring a car from Dublin Airport will give you the freedom to explore not only the historical city of Dublin but also the area around the city. To see the beautiful scenery of Ireland, the most convenient way is by car. After leaving Dublin city centre, you'll find rural roads surrounded by beautiful Irish views. Dublin Airport is located 7 miles from the city centre, so hiring a car will make the journey not only more flexible but also a lot less stressful than negotiating the airport's public transport system.
Famous for its lively nightlife, Dublin is also a very cultural city. It is home to the largest park in Europe, Trinity College and the Guinness Factory. Although the city centre is not overly car friendly - it hosts heavy traffic and a confusing one-way system - there is no reason to limit your holiday! Pick up your car from Dublin Airport.
The seaside resort of Bray is only 12 miles south of the city and perfect for families, offering cycling, fishing and hill-walking in the beautiful scenery of the Wicklow Mountains. A 30 mile drive from Dublin is the World Heritage Site of Bru na Boinne, a site of Neolithic tombs built thousands of years ago. Also worth a visit is the picturesque village of Howth, only 9 miles away. Home to Howth Castle and numerous fish restaurants, Howth is a traditional Irish town easily accessible by car.
