Car Hire FAQs

What are the requirements to hire a car in Dublin?

If you’re looking for car hires in Dublin, you’ll have a whole range of companies to choose from. To hire a car, you’ll need a valid driver’s licence, credit card and passport. Many car hire companies don’t provide cars for drivers under 25; it’s best to check in advance if they will, and often there is a surcharge for drivers under this age. If you’re over 75, you may also have to pay an extra charge. Cheap car hires in Dublin are widely available, as are other vehicle options such as luxury car hires, passenger van hires and economy car hires.

What are the rules for driving in Dublin?

For anyone using hire cars in Dublin, be aware that you’ll be driving on the left-hand side of the road. Seatbelts must be worn by all passengers at all times, in the front and back of the car. For anyone using car hire and travelling with children, note that anyone under 12 cannot sit in the front. All children under 150 cm or 36 kg must be in the correct child seat or booster for their age, height and weight, by law. The use of mobile phones, apart from hands-free devices, is prohibited. In towns and cities, the speed limit is 50 km/h (31 mph); on regional, local and national roads, the speed limit varies from 80-100 km/h (50-62 mph); and on motorways, the limit is 120 km/h (75 mph). The drink driving limit in Dublin is 50 mg of alcohol per 100ml of blood for fully licenced drivers. We always advise checking with the city’s motor vehicles department for any changes to the laws.

What type of car is recommended for driving in Dublin?

If you’re using a car hire in Dublin, you may want to consider an economy or smaller-size car, given that parts of the city have narrow streets and some areas are predominantly pedestrianised.
