KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Dublin

  • The best way to fully experience the joys of Dublin is by car. You will find renting a car is a much simpler way to get around Ireland’s capital city than relying on its hectic public transport system. Plus you benefit from having freedom to discover the best sights at your leisure. Naturally, you’ll want to visit the iconic Guinness Storehouse, which has free parking on nearby Crane Street. Or further afield, less than an hour’s drive outside the city, you’ll find the wonderful gardens of Powerscourt House in County Wicklow.
  • Less than 20 miles from the city center, Dublin Airport offers excellent opportunities for car hire. When you arrive at the Airport, finding the car hire desks could not be easier. If you’re arriving from a regional flight, you’ll find the hire desks in the Arrivals Hall at Terminal 1, or, if you’re on an international flight, you’ll arrive into Terminal 2 and go to the multi-story parking lot to book your hire car.
  • Firstly, you must remember that everyone drives on the left in Ireland and, as Dublin is a small city, you can expect to navigate much smaller roads. To get the best out of your driving experience in and around Dublin, stick to the main routes and avoid shortcuts, as you may get lost. The city is a rabbit warren of one-way and dead-end streets that can outfox even the most experienced drivers.
  • To save you from traffic jams and gridlock, always avoid the Dublin rush hour between 7:30 am and 9 am, and in the evenings around 6:30 pm. It’s also best not to drive near the Liffey River at these busy times. In the darker, winter months, be wary of fog and mist, which can affect driving conditions, as can the frost on higher routes.
  • 25% of our users found a car hire in Dublin for R426 or less
  • Book your car hire in Dublin at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Off-airport car hire locations in Dublin are around 65% cheaper than airport locations on average
  • Intermediate car hire in Dublin are around 23% cheaper than other car types, on average

Insights shared by verified travellers who hired a car in Dublin 
Verified travelerMar 2024
The roads in Ireland were surprisingly much wider and in better condition than those in England, generally speaking.
MimiMar 2024
When you’re picking up the car, ask how to deal with the toll. What we did was just pay each time using a credit card, which is the easiest thing to do. But make sure that the car doesn’t already have a tag. If it does, then you can just drive through and pay them back later.

Verified travelerApr 2024
Get the smallest vehicle your group can fit in. Roads and parking spots are often tight
Verified travelerNov 2023
When in doubt stay to the left. The car was very worth it, and I recommend driving around the parking lot and getting a feel for the car. There is no shame in the "left" bracelet! It saved me multiple times. Street parking was a nightmare but thankfully we didn’t stay in the city, we drove around the country
lynneOct 2023
Absolutely buy the full insurance available! The roads are narrow, the speed limits are high for the roads, and there are wide buses coming at you on the roads. Because parking is expense in the cities, plan ahead where you can park.
BrunaOct 2023
The traffic is terrible in the town, but it's worth renting a car when you want to travel to another county.
Verified travelerSep 2023
Be prepared to drive a standard transmission on the wrong side of the road! Takes guts!
Verified travelerSep 2023
Driving in Dublin is alright. Roads around Ireland are beautiful! 😊
Verified travelerSep 2023
We got the car for a road trip. We didn’t need a car inside Dublin. You should inspect the car and tires and don’t let them give you a car that’s not in order. Don’t assume they will have done a proper inspection on it.

Always stay on the outer left on roundabouts Mind the left side Don't take yourself to serious All the places I went took CC including the toll stations
Verified travelerOct 2023
Make sure you understand driving on the left side of the road, and study up on roundabouts in Ireland!
MariaSep 2023
I’m sure your car is an automatic on your reservation, unless you drive stick.

This location is ok but you need to take the tram to access.

It was crazy! We drove in circles and then just left town.

Always keep left when driving. Look right when entering roundabouts.
saraiOct 2023
Research full insurance and final price!
DonSep 2023
Comparison shopping is a must.
Verified travelerJun 2023
Video and check your rental thoroughly . Most vehicles are manual transmission so if you need an automatic request one. Have some form of GPS either your phone or built in the car. Roads in Ireland outside of cities are pretty narrow with limited passing areas and the occasional farm vehicle. People tend to drive slower than posted limit. Be patient. And Keep left : ie steering wheel to road centre line not curb side 😁 Be safe
SteveJul 2023
I think I'd suggest going straight to the rental companies and making sure all your coverages and requirements are booked in advance. It is very confusing and stress inducing when your unsure and making changes to the reservation at the airport / airport lot.
ronAug 2023
Rent directly through the car rental company. And qeeq and try to get a rental company on site vs having to deal with shuttle buses especially after getting off an overnight flight.
TraceyJun 2023
I did not drive in Dublin, other than the area around the airport. Country driving and driving in Galway, Cork, Kilkenny, and Waterford was very manageable.
Verified travelerJun 2023
The motorways were great - vast improvement over years ago. Just have to pay attention & use gps / navsat if you don’t know the area.
BillJun 2023
Definitely take the insurance. Our car was dinged in a car park during one of our family excursions. Worth every euro….
KayleeAug 2023
Was a smooth rental process, pick up went well and drop off went even faster!!
Verified travelerAug 2023
Great option picking up car at off-airport location.
MarkJun 2023
Full concentration required when driving in any city. Recommend automatic instead of manual transmission if your not used to stick shift, especially if your driving on opposite side of road from your origin country.
Verified travelerAug 2023
We spent most of our time outside Dublin, and when we did spend the day in the city, we parked at Carrigmines and took the Luas (train) into the city.
CynthiaAug 2023
I can’t believe that I’m supporting this, but travel insurance, or book with a company that will refund your money if you can’t make your trip.
Verified travelerAug 2023
Check your car before driving away. Make sure there are no scratches or anything that haven’t been registered. Make videos and photos as proof.
CronanJul 2023
Take your time and plan your trip each day. The traffic can be very busy at times so try to work around that.
TomJun 2023
Better to use public transit and ride share if staying in Dublin. Rent a car if you are touring the country.
BrendanJul 2023
It was challenging at first being a North American, but I got used to it quickly. Not a big deal.

Be flexible, renting in Ireland can be a nightmare especially with insurance. Choosing a good rental company is very important.

Driving on the left side can take some getting used to, be carerul. In general it was fine though.

Contact your credit card company ahead of time if you plan to leverage the coverage they provide.

Get an automatic, plan on paying for insurance, and note that extra drivers cost more.

Definitely map your exact route back to drop off. Even though we set it up on Google maps I missed the exits 3 times. Give yourself a lot of extra time in Dublin. There is a lot of traffic. Most of my experience driving was outside of the city and it was smooth sailing. No real problems with driving in Ireland it was a nice experience.

If you are used to driving left steering wheel cars it is a good advice to ask for automatic transmission . The drivers in Dublin are very polite and the traffic is moderate . It is a pleasure to drive in such places .

It is fine. Narrow parking

FAQs about hiring a car in Dublin

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Dublin?

    As the majority of Dublin’s streets are narrow or cobbled, it’s best to rent a small car that can easily zip around.

  • What’s the speed limit in Dublin?

You will always be notified by sign posts where there is a change of speed limit.

Pickup and drop off were easy. But they mistakenly charged me in-terminal drop off fee that shouldn’t be charged if I dropped the car at their office outside terminal. They also changed unidentified small money, $4.56, without explanation through the email. It will be settled but I’m a little annoyed.

Hello. I'm Gabriel and I'm 21. I booked and reserved a car in Dublin Airport for 7:00 pm 15/10/2022 VolksWagen Polo , I went to the front desk and they didn't let me drive the car for my years of age. In the Kayak it didn't show the age policy and restrictions. I paid additionally the Axa additional driving insurance for €9.99 I'll send u the screenshot for the proof that I didn't know about anything and I would like to get a refund from the car and the insurance if it's possible. My driver's Name is Gabriel Cruz. Let me know as soon as possible

Pros:

Nice staff, didn't pressure upsell the insurance like I was worried about. Drop off in the city center was not as easy as expected, due to the lack of parking instructions. Value was outstanding.

Cons:

Need to provide clear instructions that if you are dropping off at the lower Drumconda location, there are no parking spots in front of the office. You need to pull into a bus lane and park there, which isn't ideal, but workable.

Pros:

the second car was very good. they helped us at the airport which was a better location. However, the agent that helped us was less than helpful. it needed to be clearer that if you didn't take their insurance they were going to put 7500 euros on your credit card. he was unwilling to provide options. In comparison we dealt with another company in glascow and they provided good alternatives with reasonable costs. A much better experience.

Cons:

The first car they gave us was old and not in good working order. we returned it and got a much better, newer car that worked well.

Mark was the BEST!! We were sold an insurance policy from a 3rd party that ended up being invalid in Ireland...we never would have known without Mark! He brought it to our attention, helped us confirm this fact with the 3rd party, and helped facilitate our refund with them. He then helped us get a a valid policy, and even upgraded our car to help ease our pain of the day ;) Would recommend!

Cons:

Dirty bathrooms with no toilet paper in men's OR women's bathrooms.

I pay in advance for a full coverage insurance and at the counter for check in they told me that they didn’t accept the insurance I hired and charged me a ridiculous amount for a new insurance. They also charged a different price for the rental. The car was all scratched. Other than that, everything was okay.

Payless cancelled / deleted my reservation without notice. I attempted to contact Payless through website, and they said there wasn’t a reservation. Good thing a companion had made another reservation

8,0 Very Good

Oct 2019

KAYAK

Cons:

I used my credit card’s insurance guarantee, but nowhere in the reservation did it say that to do do ALSO required a letter from my credit card company stating (1) that they cover the Republic of Ireland, (2) they will cover the lace loss if totaled, and (3) the last 4 numbers of my cc account. So at the Europcar desk I had to make that phone call, wade through a few phone trees, then talk to a couple of humans. I did get the letter (great service by my cc bank!) but I was lucky - that approval process may take up to 24 hours. The Europcar desk agent said this happens “quite a bit” with the brokers because you don’t provide the information about what each rental car company requires to use the cc insurance waiver benefits. I suggest adding a link to your process that will take your to the specific rental car company page for their CDW. I did use the link provided for my rental but it did not say I would have to get the letter etc.

Cons:

My credit card covered rental insurance fully and Europcar asked for an email from my bank/credit card company before giving me the car. I had to call my credit card provider and have them send an email to Europcar. Pretty damn ridiculous. All told, I wasted three hours getting all this sorted, and even after I finally got them what they needed, they put a EURO 5,000 authorization charge on my account, an obscene amount for a one-week rental. Also: There's a 25 EURO airport surcharge that I was never made aware of, and a 35 EURO charge to travel into Northern Ireland, which I also wasn't made aware of until the time of payment. I recommend you book elsewhere, because a Google search tells me that not all car rental companies charge for traveling into Northern Ireland.

4,4 Mediocre

Jul 2018

KAYAK

Pros:

The car was grey.

Cons:

Upon arrival in Dublin we were shuttled to an outside airport location. The quoted vehicle was not available, altho we had reserved it several months ahead. In fact they said Dublin NEVER carries that model (a 9 passenger van). So we were given a smaller (7 pax) vehicle which was way too small for our 6 adults to enjoy for a week. The quoted price was 1/4 of what they ended up charging. We had insurance but they would not accept it and required we pay the Europcar offered policy. We have rented in many other countries without all the insurance demands. We would never have booked with them if the initial quote had been correct as other vendors had just what we wanted. Europcar is a real RIPOFF.

The car we eventually got kept working and did not break down - that is the only nice thing I can say.

Cons:

The fact we were left standing outside at night for over and hour waiting on the shuttle service, that we were given a smaller car than that booked, that there were loads of extra charges we could do nothing about was appalling! No sprinkler in the car so could not wash windows! Problems dropping off car - no one at the return location. Lost so much time was late for my flight. Like others, what appeared to be a good deal was really not one. I will never use this company again!

It took way to long to pick up the car (about 45 minutes). We had to wait in a line at the airport, then take a shuttle bus to the rental car lot, then wait in another 15 minute line at the lot, then wait another 10 minutes for our car to be cleaned. Very duplicative and unnecessary. Also, they made us get car insurance even though they had letters from people with the same credit card as us saying that people with that credit card have coverage in Ireland.
