Dublin Airport

Airport Car Rental

The capital of the Republic of Ireland, Dublin is both the most international place in the country and the epitome of Irishness. Whether you’re looking for museums, history, nightlife, or easy access to Ireland’s beautiful nature, Dublin has it all. These are five of the most interesting attractions in and around it:

  • EPIC The Irish Emigration Museum. A modern and popular institution that was recognized by the World Travel Awards as recently as 2020, the interactive Emigration Museum covers everything from groups that arrived in Ireland 1,500 years ago to the Irish Famine and subsequent exodus to North America of a large percentage of the population. Visit the museum’s official website to learn more about different exhibitions and admission. 
  • National Maritime Museum. Appropriately located in the former Mariners’ Church which was built for Irish seafarers in 1837, this one is another of the Irish capital's really fascinating museums. There are a number of interesting artifacts and exhibits on display, as well as models of famous Irish ships like the RMS Leinster. The museum is in the suburb town of Dún Laoghaire and can be reached by car from the city center in about 35 minutes.
  • Wicklow Mountains National Park. One of the six national parks of the Republic of Ireland, this popular day trip is about an hour’s drive south of Dublin. Attractions include both the network of hiking trails that snake through an impressive landscape of highlands, forests, valleys, and wetlands and the valley of Glendalough which is home to a 6th-century monastic complex.
  • The Guinness Storehouse. Located at St. James Gate Brewery, this popular tourist attraction celebrates the history of the famous beer company, Guinness. Since its opening in the year 2000, it has received over 20 million visitors. Travel through seven floors to learn about beer production and its famous advertising through the ages and enjoy a pint of Guinness when you reach the top floor. The bar offers 360-degree panoramic views of Dublin, and it’s the perfect place to savor a pint.
  • St Mary's Pro-Cathedral. Catholicism has always been and remains a major part of Irish culture, so it’s little wonder that one of the city’s main churches is also a famous landmark among local and foreign visitors alike. Dating back to the early 19th century, the cathedral is on Marlborough Street near a number of other notable attractions.

FAQ

Can we cross into Northern Ireland?
Yes, It is possible to cross the border into Northern Ireland with a rental car. You need to get permission fro the rental company in advance and will also be charged an additional fee.
Is it cheaper to book online or at the rental office when you arrive?
If you pay at the counter you will enjoy the rates imposed directly by the rental company while booking online with us, you can take advantage of rates that we have negotiated based on large volumes and thereby being lower. Also, just as with airline prices, last-minute rates can be significantly higher.
Is it possible to rent diesel cars?
Yes, we have a variety of categories where cars are guaranteed to be diesel models.
When returning the car, is the deposit returned or refunded to the card if everything is in order?
Once the car is returned and is confirmed to have no damage, the rental company will unblock the deposit for the customer, though this may take up to 20 days.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in Dublin?
Most rental companies serving Dublin Airport require drivers to be at least 25 years old. Notable exceptions are Sixt, which requires renters to be at least 21, and Easirent which rents to drivers that are at least 23. Both of these companies charge an extra fee to those under 25.
Can I rent a car in Dubin if I am 75? If so, is there any additional fee?
Not all rental companies at Dublin Airport will rent to drivers that are over 75. For example, Easirent does not rent to anyone over 74. For those companies that do rent to older drivers, there is no additional fee as there is for younger drivers. Be sure to search using your age to see which companies will allow you to rent a vehicle from them.

I rented a budget car in Dublin and was pleased with the convenience of the airport desk and shuttle service to the rental. At the rental, they quickly got me into a vehicle and gave me all the important return information. My car was very fuel efficient and clean. When I returned it, they processed me very quickly.

Wild Atlantic Way is an amazing drive. If going to the the cliffs of Moher in county Clare don't go in the main entrance walk from Doolin to liscannor about 18K walk along the epic cliff walk coast and you don't have to pay to get into cliffs of Moher because you will be walking past it.

Ireland was wonderful. It was a lot of fun to drive around the island and visit different places. I recommend spending at least a few days in Killarney. The Bru na Boinne region near Drogheda with the Neolithic tombs of Knowth, Dowth and Newgrange is a must-see. Make a stop at the Rock of Cashel between Dublin and Killarney.

Just be careful if you have to re-fuel, especially if you're not familiar with the local Dublin Airport road network area, as the nearest petrol station is not easy to find and then to get back to the car hire location when returning your vehicle.

I thought that Dublin was going to be just a nightmare to navigate around. At first, it was unnerving, as the streets in Dublin are usually bumper-to-bumper traffic. Also, another thing to note is that the street signs are right at the intersection. Also, the highways are all narrower; there's only room for exactly one car per lane, with no room for error. it's a different highway system than it is in the U.S. That isn't to say that the streets are impossible to master as a foreigner. Once you get used to it, driving around Ireland can be both challenging and fun. But it is not recommended for beginner drivers, as the native drivers aren't always considerate of inexperienced drivers (particularly within Dublin).

I live local to Dublin Airport and wanted the car for a trip to Galway. Budget in Dublin North is adjacent to the Airport, so for visitors there is a free Airport DAA bus to the Car rental pickup location. Budget in Galway - guys nice, office on Eyre Square (central) and Car pickup location about 300 yards away. Good experiences both times I have used them in Ireland
