If you’ve ever heard the quotes “Be yourself; everyone else is already taken” or “We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars”, you already know a little bit of Dublin: Those quotes are courtesy of Oscar Wilde, its most famous native son. Visit his statue in Merrion Square (if it looks like it’s smirking at you, that’s because it is), then explore the rest of “The Dubs” and beyond in one of Wotif’s Dublin car hire deals.
Drive that Dublin car rental over the River Liffey on the Grattan Bridge, bang a left and you’ll find yourself in one of the city’s most happening neighbourhoods, Temple Bar Square. Find your favourite Irish musician on the Wall of Fame, then take a snap with your doppelganger at the National Wax Museum and learn a little Irish history in the process.
True aficionados of ancient history are in luck here, too: The 800 years of history of Dublin Castle are nearby. Walk through Dubhlinn Gardens like royalty before you (no, we didn’t write that wrong—that’s the Gaelic spelling).
Got a real craving for castles? Hop an hour flight north to Edinburgh accommodation. We hear they’ve got a pretty impressive one.
Ireland is a pretty small country, so why not get behind the wheel of your car hire in Dublin and drive all the way across it? You’ll be richly rewarded at the Cliffs of Moher, 250km west, where the gently rolling hills of the countryside end at dramatic, towering cliffs with the Atlantic raging beneath. Your holiday just got a whole lot fiercer!
You’re gonna need car hire if you want to explore like Tom Crean at the South Pole (he’s famous here, don’t worry about it). Feel like “Dublin” down? Book your hotel and airfares with our Dublin holiday packages and plan your whole getaway with just a few clicks.
