the island of Ireland couldn’t be easier, so seeing all your favourite sites is made possible, no matter what form of transport you choose. Rent a car
is definitely one of the more convenient ways to get around and access some of our more remote locations. Make sure you book in advance, especially during the summer months, and keep in mind that most rental cars are standard shift/manual.
To get around the Dublin area, Ireland’s rail services are an easy and cheap way to explore the city. The DART
servces Dublin’s coastal area from Howth and Malahide in north County Dublin, to Greystones in County Wicklow. You can get a Leap Visitor Card
for Dublin’s various transit systems, or an iLink
card if you’re travelling around NorthernIreland.
Most of Ireland’s islands can be accessed via boat or ferry
. Many ferry companies only operate seasonally and are weather dependent, so make sure to keep an eye on the local weather reports. And again, if you’re travelling during tourist season, it’s always a good idea to book in advance.
For those fond of slow travel, Ireland is a wonderful place to embark on a backpacking or cycling trip. Northern Ireland has a national cycle network
, spread across 800 miles of beautiful riverside roads and country paths. Both Dublin and Belfast also offer city bikes for rent – cycling is a great way to soak up an authentic experience in Ireland.
