KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Letterkenny

  • Letterkenny is the largest town in the county and an optimum place to set up a base for exploring the countryside surrounding it, the rest of the country, and some of the best places to visit in and around Donegal. Choosing a car hire in Letterkenny gives you the chance to take control of your road trip without having to rely on local transport. No standing in long bus lines or dealing with overpriced taxis. Take a drive out to Donegal Country Museum before driving to St. Eunan's Cathedral and then spend some time at a local bar, all on your own time and without delays.
  • If you're flying into the country, the nearest airport to Letterkenny is Derry Airport, located around 40 minutes away by car and offers car hire in Letterkenny by two separate companies. You'll need to make a booking online when hiring a car at Derry Airport and arrange to meet the car hire agency at the airport on arrival. The two agencies available are AVIS and Hertz and they offer a wide range of cars to choose from. Some of the most popular choices include 4x4s and SUVs, best suited for long-distance travel.
  • The roads in Letterkenny are suitable for all-size vehicles but best suited to small cars, especially when driving around the centre of town. The open road outside of the city is best for 4x4s and SUVs, especially if you're travelling between towns and cities and road-tripping across the country. You'll want to make sure there are snow coverings on your tyres in the winter and that you have good tread on your hired car.
  • Letterkenny car hire doesn't come without its difficulties but driving in and around the town is relatively easy. The population of the city is small and the roads are easy to drive. The most difficult time during the year to drive is the winter months when it's cold and rainy. The roads can get slippery and dangerous, so you'll need to drive safely.
  • Book your car hire in Letterkenny at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

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

    The kind of car hire in Letterkenny that you need, depends mostly on what you're using the car for. Small, compact cars are well-suited for driving around the town centre because of the smaller roads, making it easier to navigate them. If you're travelling with a larger group or planning on making a road trip around the country to nearby cities and sights, consider hiring an SUV or 4x4. The varied terrain on the outskirts is easier to navigate using a bigger vehicle, especially during the wet seasons. If you're concerned about the environment, major car hire companies like AVIS offer Hybrid vehicles that are more eco-friendly and produce fewer carbon emissions.

As you get closer to the city and reach the rural roads, the speed limit drops to 80 km/h. Once you reach the town and other built-up areas, the limit will be 50 km/h. You'll need to be aware of special speed limits, which are often applied in designated zones and designated roads, such as those around schools, where the speed limit of 30 km/h is usually enforced. If you're out on the open road and driving along the main motorway, the limit will be 120 km/h.

Nice comfortable SUV provided by Enterprise in Omagh. Pick up in Derry and returned to same location. Courteous and helpful staff. I have no complaints only compliments. It made for a very enjoyable month's holiday back home.
