Airport Car Rental

Get your rental car at Dublin Airport! Then drive into downtown Dublin—there’s plenty to see and do. Go to St. Patrick’s Cathedral, take in the architecture, and visit the Dublin Writers Museum, the National Museum of Archeology, or the National Gallery of Ireland. For a change of pace, take a stroll through one of the city’s beautiful parks and botanical gardens.

Looking for day trip ideas? How about a drive to Dublin’s suburbs, such as Donnybrook or Ballsbridge, for some boutique shopping and a leisurely lunch?
