Travel Tips: Transport in Ireland
Relying on the public transport in Ireland to get around may not be the wisest thing to do! Here are a couple of suggestions on getting around.
Car Rental in Ireland
Maybe the handiest method of traveling in Ireland but also one of the more expensive options. You will be paying more than EUR200 for a week’s rent, and perhaps considerably more.

Buses run regularly between the main towns and cities. Some train lines also operate. In the cities, you will find city buses. If you want my advice, don’t solely rely on these to travel the country. Having said that, the buses do go to many tourist destinations as in villages and small towns which maybe helpful for you.
Any town of a population of more than 10,000 should have a good number of taxi cabs. Also expect them at airports and bus stations. You must find the taxi ranks, and you’ll spot taxis by the yellow bar mounted on the roof.
Hackney cabs must be telephoned to collect you. Ask the locals if they know the telephone number for a hackney company.
Pricewise, you can pay EUR5-EUR10 for cross-town fare. Ask before you begin the journey.
You will find bike rental in any town with a flow of tourists. You’ll get to see some of the local countryside. Beware of bad weather which occurs occasionally in Ireland. Cycling through the wind and rain may not be to everybody’s liking.
