It's great that you are kicking off your adventures in Europe on the island of Ireland, and I completely understand you want to be fully prepared, and everything to run as smooth as possible. :)
You and your husband have chosen a lovely time of year to visit, and a car definitely gives you the freedom to explore and simply go where the road takes you. What else would you like to see and do
during your two weeks here? Is there anything in particular that you wouldn't want to miss?
I know there is a lot of information available out there about car rental, and I would love to point you in the right direction. You can find some helpful resources and tips on the vehicle rental page
, as well as a list of all the companies approved by the Car Rental Council of Ireland
You can also read more about how our other members planned their road trips in the Rental Car Requirements
and the I'm thinking of renting a car in Ireland - what do I need to know?
threads, as well as this post about an International Drivers License
. Most rental companies will require a valid driving license that was issued in the country of residence, but it's always handy to check with them just in case.
I hope this was helpful, and that you'll receive more information from our other members and experts. :) Please don't hesitate to reach out if you need any help with your plans!
