Driving in Ireland
Driving in Ireland is fairly straightforward to anybody who is familiar with European roads but here are some key point to help keep your car hire vehicle on course:
- In Ireland always drive on the left hand side of the road
- The speed limit varies according to the road, urban roads tend to be limited to 31 miles per hour, while most rural roads have limits of 62 miles per hour. On motorways the speed limit raises to 74 miles per hour
- Most roads have a large hard shoulder at the side of the road - this area is usually reserved for the emergency services
- When driving on rural roads remember Ireland is home to a large number of animals so be careful when rounding corners
