Car Rental Ireland is without a doubt the best way to see and explore Ireland as a tourist. Travelling around Ireland is wonderful when you are not relying on the public transport system to get you to all the best places. Because the country is geographically small, it is possible to explore all of Ireland on your own and visit the must see places on your wish list, and the nicest thing of all is, that everywhere is only a short drive away.
