Getting Around in Ireland

Ford Mondeo

Ireland is basically rural country and sparsely populated so getting to many places makes renting a car essential. There is no main network of highways similar to the U.S. or other major European countries. Any extended automobile journey should provide the visitor with many sightseeing opportunities. Although most people choose to drive themselves, there are many different sizes of coaches available for small and large groups who want to relax and let someone else do the driving.

Ford Galaxy

Driver/guides in Ireland are very professional and experienced. A good driver/guide has a way of understanding what a group is like within just a few minutes. They’ll lead you to great restaurants, nightlife and sightseeing that you might not have found on your own. Ask a Golfpac representative to price your quote with a driver guide!

Rental cars are easy to obtain but are generally smaller than most American rental cars. It is necessary to carry with you a valid driver's license and a credit card (used only as a guarantee) as the rental car company will require both at the time of rental. The renter must be over the age of 21 and a young-driver surcharge applies for drivers between 21 and 25 years of age. For renters over the age of 70, a driving test may be given to assure the company of the person's driving ability. However, most rental car companies reserve the right to refuse to rent when they believe the client can not handle Ireland road rules and conditions.

Speed Limits

In the Republic, the speed limit is either 30 or 40 mph in urban areas and 55 mph on country roads. In Northern Ireland, the limit for country roads is 60 mph, and 70 mph is allowed on motor ways.

Drinking & Driving

The Irish Police strongly enforce and offer one simple precaution — don’t drink and drive.

Seat Belts

Drivers, front seat and rear seat passengers must, by law, wear a seat belt in Ireland.
