Hiring a car in Dublin
Dublin has changed so much over the last few decades, transforming into a city that has become urban and sophisticated, while maintaining its traditional roots. No matter where you are in the city, you’re never far away from a piece of its history.
The Irish capital has made important contributions to history and culture, providing the setting for the Easter Rising of 1916, which sparked the country’s civil war. It has also played an important part in the arts, being home to some of the most renowned actors, writers and artists, such as James Joyce, Oscar Wilde, Maureen O’Hara and Gabriel Byrne.
As you drive around Dublin you will realise that it is proud of its past, but is keen to embrace its future as a modern European city.

Where to pick up your car
You can pick your hire car from several different locations across the city, depending on which is most convenient for you. If you’re flying into Dublin Airport (DUB) you pick up your car either in the Arrivals Halls if you’re landing in Terminal 1 or the multi-storey car park if you’ll be coming through Terminal 2. A number of firms can provide you with a car here.
If you will be travelling to the city by rail, you can also arrange your hire car from Dublin Heuston train station. Several companies will either send a representative to collect you or provide a shuttle bus to their offices.
