Ireland is a gorgeous island in the North Atlantic just waiting to be explored. Renting a car with Enterprise Rent-A-Car lets you discover all the most popular sights and hidden treasures, with the freedom of the open road.
Start your adventure on the Wild Atlantic Way, a 2,500 km stretch along Ireland’s breathtaking western coastline. Get ready to experience jaw-dropping cliffs, lush green forests, and deep blue ocean waves. Start in the Northern Headlands, named by National Geographic as the Coolest Place on the Planet for 2017, boasting some of Europe’s highest sea cliffs and the Northern Lights shimmering across the skies.
Make your way down the coast towards the Surf Coast, with a name that truly fits. The Surf Coast features the red-gold beach of Strandhill with waves that beckon surfers from around the world. Continue towards Bay Coast, a nature-lover’s paradise. Here, you’ll find bikers, hikers, surfers, swimmers, and watersports aficionados enjoying the diverse terrain that marks this scenic area. Stop at the nearby Cliff Coast, where you’ll enjoy authentic Irish small town charm, and cliff-top walks along the beach.
Keep driving towards the Southern Peninsulas, perfect for exploring a world of wildlife, including flocks of puffins and bottlenose dolphins. Drive further down towards Haven Coast, the southernmost stretch of the route, for whale-watching, sailing, and soaking in Ireland’s crisp ocean air. The Wild Atlantic Way presents the perfect road-trip itinerary, giving you the best of Ireland’s nature and the sensation of authentic Irish charm.
Your next adventure takes you on a more historic route, starting in Ireland’s capital city Dublin, where you’ll be able to visit the world-renowned Trinity College, St. Stephen’s Green in the center of the city, and the premier shops along Grafston Street. Enjoy all the cafes, art galleries, and architectural monuments that line the cobblestoned Temple Bar – one of Dublin’s most popular areas. Head towards Cork to visit the famed Blarney Castle. Legend has it that a kiss on the Blarney Stone gives you a lifetime of eloquence – see for yourself if the myth holds true.
Continue onwards towards the charming seaside town of Cobh, the historic departure point for the first person to go through Ellis Island’s immigration station, and the port of call for the Titanic. Next stop, the Cliffs of Moher. Over 700 feet tall and over 5 miles long, these stunning cliffs along the Atlantic coast of Clare are simply breathtaking. Ireland is a road-tripping goldmine.
