Known for its gorgeous scenery and stunning landscapes, Ireland is a great place for holidays and short breaks away. From exploring the lush green countryside to staying in a cosy cottage in an Irish village towards the rocky West Coast, there’s plenty to see and do here no matter how long you stay.
For those wanting a more urban visit to Ireland, capital city Dublin is the place to start. While the city isn’t massive, it’s still a magical place to visit with a fabulous creative history where many authors and poets honed their craft. It’s also renowned for its friendly pub goers as one of the most widely recommended things to do while you’re out there is to sit down and have a pint with a Dubliner.
It’s generally recommended to carry with you spare bulbs for your car’s external lights, a fire extinguisher, first aid kit and a warning triangle.
Some motorways have toll booths. Very few accept credit card payments, so it’s a good idea to have change in the car at all times.
Don’t use your car horn between 11.30pm and 7am.
