Things to do in Dublin

Natural beauty on the Emerald Isle:

Dublin and the luscious nature that surrounds the historic city, attracts thousands of tourists all year round and it’s not hard to see why. Whether you’re looking for a lively city break or after a tranquil retreat, the capital can certainly cater to both.

The best way to enjoy Dublin’s outstanding natural beauty is to explore by car. Within minutes of landing in the city, you could be setting off on the road trip of a lifetime! Starting at the gothic-styled Dublin Castle, you could make your way to Kilmainham Gaol – the notorious political prison. Whilst you’re there, why not awe at the beautiful medieval cathedrals dotted throughout Dublin, including St. Patrick’s and the Christ Church Cathedral.

Lively activities in Dublin:

If you’re after a more upbeat weekend however, look no further than Dublin’s world famous Guinness Storehouse and enjoy beer tasting on the rooftop bar. Also positioned close to the storehouse on the other side of the River Liffey, is the Jameson Distillery. You could complete your day out by booking tickets to watch a rugby game at the Aviva stadium or by embracing the national sport instead, Gaelic football.

With the added convenience of having many Enterprise branches across the city, you know you can plan your trip just how you want it. 

Driving Information in Dublin

  • In the Republic of Ireland you drive on the left, like in the rest of the British Isles.
  • International driving permits are required if you are not traveling from other EU nations, the UK, Canada, Australia or the US. Accompanying the permit should be your individual driver's license.
  • Motorways are indicated as a blue sign and the letter “M”, whereas the national roads are green signs with an “N”. For example, the M40 or the N9.
  • Dublin’s M40 orbital motorway helps avoid the traffic of the inner city. The speed limits range from 120km/h to 80km/h but be aware of changes where construction or an accident occurs.
  • Speed limits are in kilometres and are as follows: 120 km/h (75 mph) for motorways. 100 km/h (62mph) on national routes (both for primary and secondary roads that are not designated motorways). 80 km/h (50 mph) when driving on local and regional roads. Residential areas are restricted to 50 km/h (Roughly 30 mph).
  • Apps or GPS navigation tools that warn you of fixed speed cameras are forbidden in Ireland, so disabling such functions is advised to avoid potential fines.
  • Narrow country lanes are commonplace once you drive out of the main city perimeters. Take precautions and ensure you anticipate oncoming cars or farm equipment at blind corners.
  • Dial 112 to contact the emergency services when traveling in Ireland.
