KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Wexford

  • Car hire in Wexford gives you an ideal opportunity to explore the southeast coast of Ireland and drive along the river mouth of the Slaney River, across to one of the many beaches along the coast. You could take time out to visit nearby villages and towns, like Enniscorthy, New Ross, Gorey, Kilmore Quay or Courtown. All of this can be done without trying to rely on local bus schedules, which can be unreliable at times, or spending a pretty penny on a personal taxi driver.
  • An airport that offers Wexford car hire is Waterford Airport (WAT), which is just over an hour away from Wexford Town and likely to be your arrival and departure point for your journey. There are no companies operating from the airport, so you'll have to book online before arriving, which will save you time and hassle. Car hire companies like Enterprise, Europcar and Hertz will arrange to bring the vehicle to the airport and have a representative meet you in the arrival hall, to escort you to the car.
  • Driving in Wexford is similar to driving elsewhere in Ireland, except much quieter than in the big cities. You won't have to worry about traffic jams unless you're in the centre of the town at around 7:00 a.m., which might add a minute or two to your travel time. Remember to drive on the left-hand side of the road and keep a look out for animals on the road. The roads aren't always well maintained, so be aware of potholes or broken surfaces and take extra precautions when driving in the rain.
  • One of the difficult things about driving in Wexford is the condition of the roads. Many of the roads aren't maintained well, so there are plenty of problem areas. The roads between the towns and cities in Wexford can get bumpy and windy, so be careful when you're driving on those, especially in the evening or when it's raining. Other than the quality of the roads, the locals are friendly and there shouldn’t be any problems with car hire in Wexford.
  • Book your car hire in Wexford at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy car hire in Wexford are around 54% cheaper than other car types, on average

Agents for car hire in Wexford offering compacts are popular with visitors; these vehicles are easier to manoeuvre and find parking for. If you're travelling with a group of people, consider hiring more than one car rather than upgrading to an SUV, especially if you're planning on sticking to the coastal roads.

  • What’s the speed limit in Wexford?

    The speed limits in and around Wexford are the same as the national limits, but always refer to road signs while driving. If you're travelling on national roads between cities and towns, the maximum speed is usually 100 km/h. The regional roads carry a speed limit of 80 km/h. Once you get to the city, drive at 50 km/h or slower. Be aware that there are special limits in certain areas like schools, shopping areas and other places children might be. The limit in these areas is usually 30 km/h. If you're on a major highway or motorway, the speed limit tends to be between 100 km/h and 120 km/h, so pay attention to the signs.

  • Where are the best places to park in Wexford?

    There is very little free on-street parking in and around Wexford. Numerous car parks around the town offer pay-and-display systems, where you'll be given a parking ticket on arrival and you must pay for the ticket before getting back to your car. A couple of these car parks include the Sam McCauley Chemis building in Redmond Square, The Key West area opposite Supervalu and the area at the end of High Street.

Pros:

the car was good but not that economical 40.9 Padraig was pleasant on pick up of the car.

Cons:

No Hertz office or personel to pick up the client at Rosslare ferry terminal. No communication per email prior to pick up. No phone message either. A courtesy pickup would be an improvement at least Budget has that facility and a large office and team of people in Ferrybank wexford is to my mind not looking after clients. I t was annoying to arrive to the ferry terminal with no pick up I have travelled extensively and rented in many places with no bother and this added expense of 34 and 35 euro tax fees makes it an expensive 10 day rental!!
