    Car Hire Dublin

    Dublin Car HireDublin is famous for its beautiful theatres, lively personalities and pub culture and ideal for exploring in an Ireland car hire booked with Auto Europe. From a leisurely stroll along the Liffey River to discovering the old haunts of James Joyce, your holiday in Dublin will be filled with unique experiences. You can explore the surrounding rolling hills and lively festive atmosphere in this vibrant capital, renowned for musical entertainment and the fairy tales of leprechauns. Enjoy a pub lunch on the north side of Dublin in the neighbourhood of Ashtown. For shopping, meander along Grafton Street or spend an afternoon pampering yourself at one of the city's luxurious spas. Visit Trinity College to have a peek at the Book of Kells original manuscript and walk through the Long Hall of the Old library in this historic Irish educational centre.

    Whilst in Dublin, be sure to visit the Abbey Theatre, Ireland's National Theatre, to catch a world-renowned classic or contemporary play. If you prefer ballet, musical and opera performances then head down to the Gaiety Theatre, the oldest theatre in Dublin. For a behind the scenes look at Dublin's most favourite drink, a visit to the Guinness Brewery is a must. The entry price includes a pint of Guinness at the end of the tour, where you will also be taught the proper way to pour a glass of the brew. Walking tours of the city centre are also available for those who want to learn about Dublin's historical culture. Tour themes range from ghosts to music, medicine, mythology, science and literature.

    For a day of hiking along the coast of the Irish Sea and breathtaking views of the countryside, the one hour drive to the Wicklow Mountains just outside of Dublin is well worth it. South of Dublin situated on the banks of the River Lee is the second largest city in Ireland, Cork. Here, visitors will find an array of activities including music and jazz festivals in the summer, sports such as sailing lessons all year round and many restaurants and pubs. If you head north you will reach Belfast, the capital of Northern Ireland situated at the mouth of the River Lagan on the Belfast Lough. In this city, you will be able to visit the century-old Grand Opera House to watch a play and browse contemporary art pieces or check out the St George's Market to pick up some fresh produce, clothing or craft.
