    Ireland Car Hire Fleet Options

    One of the world’s most welcoming places to visit, Ireland has many qualities as a tourism destination with gorgeous scenery, ancient castles, a long and fascinating history and hundreds of miles of magnificent coastline being just a few of them. This small, green island off the west coast of England offers picture-postcard vistas at every turn, making it the ideal place to travel around in an Auto Europe car hire. Promising a succession of natural wonders and prehistoric sites, Ireland’s road and motorway network is second to none with the majority of the country’s top tourist attractions quickly and easily accessible by car. Dublin, the capital, needs no introduction - this vibrant, laid-back city has long-been one of the most visited places in Europe. To the west of the island lies Galway, a lively university city with a fascinating Latin quarter. Equally compelling is south-west Ireland, a land of peaceful lakes embroidering the quaint coastal city of Cork, home to the famous Blarney Stone, a site that is said to bestow eloquence upon those who kiss it! Ireland’s monasteries were important centres of Christian learning during the Middle Ages and many are open to visitors today, as to are many of the country’s lofty castles and tower houses dating from the time of the 12th-century Anglo-Norman invasion. A must for road-trippers is a drive down the so-called Wild Atlantic Way from Donegal to the Dingle Peninsula, passing through many impressive places and stunning landscapes en route.
