Search for car hire in Dublin
Dublin is a superb city break destination and one of the oldest cities in Europe. Dublin oozes charm and, thanks to its attractions and unforgettable nightlife, it’s a great holiday destination for all ages. Public transport can be a time-consuming affair, although the “hop-on and hop-off” sightseeing bus service is an option; try to avoid driving your hire car in Dublin’s rush hour, but use it to head out of the city and explore the surrounding area.
Booking a rental car with easyCar, the low cost, online, car hire specialist, is simple. easyCar has car rental facilities at Dublin Airport (DUB) and in the city of Dublin, and offers some great cheap car hire deals.
Dublin – The City
Dublin is renowned for its excellent shops, particularly those in Grafton Street and Henry Street. Another popular attraction in Dublin is the Guinness Storehouse in St James’s Gate Brewery, where you can learn about this famous brand before stopping off for a pint at Gravity Bar, the highest bar in the city.
There are many museums and galleries in Dublin. Learn about Dublin’s history at Dublinia & The Viking World, visit the National Wax Museum PLUS or use your rental car to drive to the James Joyce Museum in Sandycove, about eight miles south of Dublin. If you’re visiting Dublin with young children, don’t miss Imaginosity, a museum specifically designed to keep them entertained.
Other Dublin attractions include the National Botanic Gardens, the library at Trinity College, where millions of books and priceless manuscripts are housed, and Kilmainham Gaol.
Dublin is also known for its nightlife – enjoy some fabulous food in one of the city’s many restaurants before heading off to a bar, pub or club to party the night away.
Attractions in the Dublin Area

Horseracing fans will love the Irish National Stud in Tully, in Kildare. You can take a tour of the stud farm and then visit the Horse Museum, which features exhibits tracing the history of racing.
