The Irish capital is the best place to experience what the country has to offer in a concentrated space. There's the lively nightlife and rich architecture as well as the coast and countryside just a short drive away when you've got an Ireland car hire. Its historic centre is easy to explore by foot and is home to Irish from all over as well as a rather good mix around the world. You can enjoy a fantastic arts scene from traditional folk music played in pubs to world class theatre and dance productions at the contemporary Bord Gáis Energy Theatre by the docks. You'll also find plenty more to enjoy of Ireland around Dublin too - see our travel blog on Dublin for more ideas.

Cork provides strong competition to Dublin on the arts and culture front. Just as colourful and not as well visited, Cork makes for a great alternative as an Irish city break. Easily the biggest city in Ireland's south, it's good place to base yourself for drives to the surrounding region.

Belfast and Northern Ireland car hire

Derry-Londonderry, Northern Ireland - Bogside Murals - Belfast Airport car hire
History on the walls in Derry~Londonderry

Across the border, the landscape is as emerald green as the rest of the island. With a visit, however, it's pretty easy to spot the difference… Pounds are the currency and street signs will reflect miles rather than kilometres. Fly into Belfast and explore the north from here with a spectacular drive along the Causeway Coastal route to Derry~Londonderry where you can learn firsthand about the region's troubled past from locals affected by it (you can find out more on the city by reading our travel blog). Belfast, Northern Ireland's capital is also not a bad place to start to explore beautiful County Donegal south of the border. For starters, check our our low prices at Belfast International Airport car hire and Belfast City Airport car hire.
