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.

Sightseeing Destinations

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.

Business Travel

The largest economic hub in Ireland, the city of Dublin is well regarded for its economic contributions to media, culture, and many multinational company headquarters. It's fame of being the "Silicon Valley of Europe" attracts many high tech information technology, financial service, and digital media companies. Europe's famous low budget airline Ryanair was also originated in Ireland and is one of the most successful small airline companies within the 33 neighboring countries in Europe. The Convention Center Dublin consolidates all of these industries into one top of the line commercial exhibition space located right along the Liffey River in the North Wall neighborhood. The Convention Center's close proximity to downtown and its many cultural attractions make networking after your event natural and accessible when you rent a car in Dublin.

I had a great experience with Sixt. The lady at the check in desk was friendly and helpful. Sean the shuttle driver made great conversation and even picked the conversation back up where we left off when I returned the car because he remembered me. I had rented a mini class but they upgraded me to a Renault Clio which was in beautiful shape.


I look forward to using Sixt on my next trip to Dublin.

Special shout-out Valter who is the Terminal Manager in Dublin. I had an issue with a car repair guy in Cork (subcontractor) but Valter's customer service was fantastic, he's the reason I am a returning customer to Sixt for my upcoming trip home to Cork in 3 weeks time!

Car prices are getting more expensive

But the staff service is good


I rented a car for a long weekend in March from the Dublin city centre branch of Sixt. I was given a practically new car (Renault Clio registered in 2021) that was a higher category than what I originally booked. I was given the car with a full tank (as expected) and spotless inside. As I chose to return the car on a Sunday after-hours, I was given the option to return it the next (Monday) morning before opening hours for free, if desired.


I initially reserved the car online with my debit card, however upon collection I had to use my credit card to pay the excess and fuel deposit, unless I paid the daily extra rate for a zero excess cover. This is a fairly standard procedure for renting a car, from my experience. The only downside from my experience is that the deposit remained blocked from my credit card for a few weeks after the booking, which was much later than the 10 working days I was told to expect. Despite this, I was impressed by the prompt and helpful customer service, whom answered my queries over email.


Overall, I had a great experience with Sixt and will definitely be returning to the company in the future. In fact, I have booked another car trip with Sixt for the next month.
