Renting a Vehicle from Dublin Airport
If you are travelling to Ireland via a Ferry you probably won't need to hire a car, but if you and need to there are a few options available.
Travelling To and From The Airport
Dublin Airport (Aerfort Bhaile Átha Cliath) is Ireland's largest. It is the principal hub of AerLingus, the budget airline Ryanair and the Irish regional airline Aer Arann. Dublin Airport serves both international and domestic air traffic. Flights to Dublin from the UK can be booked from London, Manchester, Glasgow, and Edinburgh as well as from some of the UK's smaller airports.
The Airport is some six miles north of the city. It is is close to the M1 and the M50 motorways. Other roads around Dublin, as through the rest of Ireland, can take a significant amount of time to navigate. Many of Ireland's roads are single lane and twist and turn to follow the landscape. This can be deceptive and you are best advised to plan your travelling time on the generous side.
There are a number of short and long term parking options at the airport.
Other transport options include regular bus services and taxis.
There are a number of rental options on arriving at this fantastic city. Firstly, a number of well-known companies such as Avis and Europcar have terminal outlets. However, to avoid the possibility of disappointment, which may be higher for Multi-Seat Vehicles than for regular vehicles, you can also explore rentals online before travelling. We recommend www.carrentals.co.uk because of the large number of companies that can be compared at the click of a button.
There are a number of People Carrier rental companies online as well as rental price comparison search engines. People Carrier hire at Dublin can be booked through www.carrentals.co.uk and compare, for example, 121carhire.com, arguscarhire.com, carrentals.co.uk, holidayautos.co.uk, auto-europe.co.uk, alamo.co.uk, thrifty.com, nationalcar.co.uk, ebookers.com, opodo.co.uk, hirecars.co.uk, carhire3000.com, and economycarhire.com.
Options When Booking Online
Obtaining a cheaper quote online can also give you an overview of the options available to include. Travelling with babies or children, for example, it saves a lot on your plane luggage to leave a baby or child booster seat at home and instead hire it on the spot. GPS navigational systems are also regularly offered as an optional extra.
In terms of driving the vehicle around Dublin and the rest of Ireland, you may wish to add additional drivers to the agreement. This saves you time to relax as a passenger and varies the trip for the others travelling with you.
