Traffic Information

Traffic Information

Dublin's motorway infrastructure is still in development and as such traffic in Dublin can sometimes be worse that in New York. Roads in Ireland are classified into four different categories: motorway, national roads, regional roads, and local roads. The M1-M9 motorways are based centrally around transportation in Dublin with connections to Belfast, Galway, and Cork. It's important to note that in Ireland, roads distances are measured using the metric system of kilometers and driving takes place on the left hand side of the road. Remember the two most important rules of driving in Ireland: stay on the left hand side and go slow. Most of Ireland's motorways will have you going an average of 40 mph.

Chester Beatty Library

The Chester Beatty Library located within Dublin Castle is a stunning example of Ireland's commitment to supporting the arts and education. The library holds a collection of ancient texts and artifacts from around the world, as well as conducting various workshops for children and adults alike. The Chester Beatty longroom offers a postcard perfect vantage point to snap photo to show your family back home. Entrance to the library is free and different language audio tours can be arranged to help guide you throughout your visit as well.

Guinness Storehouse

For those looking to do as the Dubliners do, take a trip to the famous Guinness Storehouse for a pint of the dark dry stout. The Irish like their Guinness like the English like their lager, and it shows in the many quaint pubs littered around the city. But there's nowhere like going for a drink at the source itself in the Liberties neighborhood of Dublin! For the most well rounded understanding about how the national drink is made, the Guinness Storehouse holds not only tastings but can give you more in depth knowledge about the brewing process.

Wicklow National Park

For more naturally breathtaking views of the Emerald Isles, rent a car for a weekend trip outside of Dublin to the nearby Wicklow National Park. The park has served as a backdrop to many famous films over the years including P.S I Love You and Braveheart. The quintessential Ireland you've imagined from the postcards, Wicklow's romantic rolling hills and meandering sheep will take you back to a simpler time in Ireland's long history.
What to Do in Dublin in Winter

What to Do in Dublin in Winter

Dublin is already known for its wet weather so much of its main attractions are, thankfully, indoors. As cold or wet as it might be, the architecture of Dublin is always a sight to see. In fact, bundling up and exploring the city in winter can often be a more beautiful way to see it. The temperature averages are in the mid-40s and it can snow in January and February. One of the main attractions in Dublin is the Guiness Storehouse, covering seven floors exhibiting the process of making the famed beer, the final floor will have a pint waiting for you with incredible views of the city. Dublin is famous for its literature scene, and you can visit the James Joyce museum or the stunning Trinity Library. As for events, the Dublin International Film Festival is held in February and March, and you should definitely experience the St. Patricks Festival in March. It is recommended to rent a compact car for Dublin as roads can be narrow. If you plan to explore the countryside, then choose an SUV.

Sixt car rental is the way to go!! We snagged an incredible deal on a brand new automatic Kia with android auto/carplay, lane keep (nearly self-driving on the freeways, it was fantastic) as well as tons of other safety features, not to mention incredible fuel economy! Tiago wasn't just kind, but also incredibly helpful in facilitating our return!! Would rent again in a heartbeat. 🥰

Such an awesome experience with customer service. There was a line of people waiting to get their car and the man working the counter was so incredibly kind and positive and hilarious! I’ve experienced many places where the person working the counter is annoyed by the amount of people there, but not here!! Also-amazing car!

Easy and fast car hiring, made the reservation a day before online through my automobile club (adac) because they hade very good offer and cooperating with Sixt. Since it's low season (october) got some more nice offers by the agent in the sixt office (cheap upgrade, road side assistance) on spot. Since we didn't thought about the cross border fee it could be easily arranged by the agent. After our trip the returing of the car was as easy and convenient as before. I recently had a bad experience with Sixt in Germany, the Irish branch seems to be under a better management. After my recent experience in Dublin i would definitely hire here again. But keep following in mind (that counts for all car rental companies!) I would recommend always taking the best collision damage waiver (EUR 0 financial responsibility) since we discovered some damages that weren't described before. So if you want to safe yourself trouble, think about spending some more money.

Dublin City Centre was packed for pick up that day (a renter had wrecked a car shortly after pick up, thus leaving the office team short-handed while troubleshooting). I waited in line with everyone else and was happy to note that the team worked diligently with every person coming through the door and when we got our car and reported a crack in the windshield, the Sixt team quickly got us a replacement as they felt it unsafe for us to drive Ireland with a crack of that size. The Renault Clio we were given was perfect for maneuvering southern Ireland and we had a blast.

Great service. The staff was very understanding and accommodating. Our booked model( VW Polo) was not available so they gave us an upgrade to another vehicle(Nissan Duster) but we didn't like it, while it was bigger it had less visibility, so they gave us another upgrade to a VW T-Cross. They also took into consideration the vehicle I drive back home which is a VW. Great service!
