Driving Tours of Ireland

Driving Tours of Ireland Car Renters Share Their Experiences. Before planning a trip to any country, it can be fun - and useful - to talk to someone who's been there before. Whether you know somebody who's travelled in Ireland or not, you can gain valuable tips by reading the accounts of people who have posted travelogues documenting their experiences online. Here is CarHire.ie Rental's pick of some of the best Ireland driving tour descriptions on the web:

Couple on Tour

Clarey's Ireland Tour tells the story of an Irish-American couple's 14-day tour of the island. After landing in Shannon airport, the couple work their way around the coast of the island, stopping in major beauty spots, such as the Cliffs of Moher, Dingle, travel the Ring of Kerry, go to Cobh, the Rock of Cashel, Avoca, Newgrange, on to the Antrim coast, Donegal and the Aran Islands, before returning to Shannon. The Clareys hired a car in Shannon Airport and stayed in B&Bs each night of their stay. Their story will give you lots of ideas, as well as a great map of their route (that you can print and follow), and lots of great photographs.

European Perspective

For a Danish traveller's recollections of the southwest of Ireland, see http://www.promoweb.dk/ireland2000. This 11-day tour is recounted in great detail: the site even includes graphical representations of the day-to-day weather! The writer also provides personal reviews of each of the places he stayed and ate.

Multimedia Travelogue

Those with high speed connections will enjoy Lisa Shea's website. Lisa provides photos and movie clips from her 18-day springtime stay, which begins in Millstreet, Co. Cork and takes in some of the country's lesser-known visitor attractions, such as Lough Sheelin in County Cavan.

Here's what our Australian friends have to say about driving in the Emerald Isle:

"We found the people very friendly and helpful, the scenery green and beautiful, the roads and highways well marked and easy to navigate and at that time of the year [October] not very busy. The road signs are in both English and Gaelic and distances are indicated in kilometres not miles. The weather during the week varied between rain periods and brilliant sunshine, with mild temperatures."
