We drove all around Ireland on your tiny local roads but did well. We did multiply B&Bs and the countryside and people of Ireland were simply amazing.

We travelled from Galway all the way to the south until the ring of Kerry, managing to stop in great spots that without a car we wouldn’t have been able to.

Drove over 2k kilometers in 10 days, car drove like a dream! Would definitely recommend extensive traveling in Kerry and Roscommon Counties! Achil Island is also a dream, I loved Keel strand (a beach that would fit right in in the Caribbean).

Nathan and other agents at the desk had recommended we drive to Kylemore Abbey and Doolin. We followed their advice and weren't disappointed! We drove to the Connemara and Cliffs of Moher as well. Breathtaking! In Galway, live music sessions in Galway are a must (we recommend The Crane Bar and Tig Coili).
