Ireland has unimaginable amounts of beautiful nature. But the distances can be great and the public transport can be a challenge if you want to get to the more isolated areas. It is therefore worth considering a self-drive car holiday in Ireland.
With a rented car, you have the freedom to stop where it suits you and let chance guide you around. Drive along the many small roads and coastal roads over the hilly green landscapes and make stops in the small cozy villages away from the main road.
