Driving in Ireland

In Ireland, you will need to drive on the left side of the road. Furthermore, the steering wheel and the manual gear shift is on the opposite side than you are used to. Therefore, if you pick up the rental car after your arrival in Ireland, you should be careful while becoming used to this new way of driving. Choosing an automatic car makes driving a lot easier for you, like this you can concentrate fully on the traffic and you won’t need to pay attention to the gearshift.

  • You will have to turn left in roundabouts
  • Your national driving license is recognized for the first 12 months of your stay in Ireland
  • If you are looking for parking space: The sign “P” indicates that you are allowed to park. “Park disc” means that you have to leave a parking disc.

High Season: Events in Ireland

Many people travel to Ireland in summer because the temperatures are the highest and the number of rainy days the lowest, but this also increases prices and there are tourists everywhere. Peak season is in summer, but whether this is the best time to travel to Ireland is questionable. Of course, many people want to escape the rain, but is it worth traveling with thousands of other tourists? .So why not travel to Ireland during the off-season? This does not just save you money. The best time to travel to Ireland is in April, May, early June, and early October, because at these times the peak season is over or has not yet started.
