    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).
