About Car Hire in Dublin City
The Irish are famous for their hospitality, and nowhere is that more apparent than in Dublin. This may be a bustling, multicultural capital city, but they still go out of their way here to make visitors feel welcome. Families are cherished in Ireland, so you'll feel even more at home renting a car in Dublin if you have children.
Tips on Collecting Your Rental Car in Dublin City
- Familiarise yourself with the car's controls. It may sound obvious, but not all cars are the same, particularly if you are used to driving a left-hand-drive or automatic car.
- Drive on the left-hand side of the road. Again, it may sound obvious, but you'd be surprised how many people forget!
- Invest in the Complete Road Atlas of Ireland. Beyond the motorways, Irish roads can be hard to follow, and signage is not always reliable.
- Use the correct fuel pump. U.S. pump handles for diesel are green, but green handles in Ireland are for unleaded petrol. If you do fill up with the wrong fuel, DON'T START THE CAR! Push it to the side and contact your car rental company immediately.
- Do not drive in Dublin City Centre if possible. Traffic is sluggish, parking is impossible to find and expensive, and all the main attractions are within walking distance.
- There is barrier-free tolling on the M50 orbital around Dublin once you cross the Liffey. Pay at a kiosk or using a phone and a credit card. Otherwise you can pay a hefty fine.
