Best places to visit in Ireland

Best places to visit in Ireland

  • Dublin: Dublin is the largest and perhaps the most well-known city in Ireland. Make a visit to this historical city where you can tour an array of museums, art galleries and Gothic cathedrals including St. Patrick's and Christ Church. If you're into the outdoors, you can enjoy a hike up Howth Cliff or enjoy a boat ride on the River Liffey.
  • Dingle Peninsula: Located on the southwestern coast of Ireland, the Dingle Peninsula offers breathtaking views of the sea and the mountains. It is also home to Coumeenoole, Inch and Fermoyle beaches where you can surf, cycle and swim.
  • Waterford: This quaint town is a great place to shop. It has several boutiques, antique shops and pubs where you can grab a bite. The House of Waterford Crystals is also located here, and no visit would be complete without a tour of the Waterford factory.

Whenever I come back to Dublin, I always use Sixt Car Hire - Dublin City South. The staff are top class: super attentive and will bend over backwards to help me. The cars themselves are new and always run smoothly. Highly recommended.

I have used Sixt several times when I needed to hire a car because of extra guests or, recently, when my car gave up the ghost and I'm between cars. I was easily able to book on line. I received a friendly and personal greeting the morning of pickup, when I was given a professional presentation of terms and the car itself. The car was not the same I saw on line, but a good equivalent and in perfect condition -- clean and working well. All in all it was an easy experience to hire a car and return it. The return was quick and painless. Quite pleased. R.M.

Very happy with my experience with Sixt, Dublin south. The car was very clean. Very easy process in the check in and out. Employees are very nice and kind. Special mention to Elaine, who looked after me at the check in, and came to me to say hello at my check out even if she was busy doing something else.
