Common Questions

Are there age restrictions to hire a car in Ireland?

To hire a car in Ireland you must be over the age of 21. Bear in mind, however, that drivers under the age of 25 must have held their licence for at least two years to rent a car in certain locations. This can vary depending on the supplier and the location, so if this applies you would be wise to check this ahead of time.

Just leave the query in the comment section and a DriveNow representative will get back to you. DriveNow does not charge a cancellation fee so you can be confident you will not be charged if you find yourself unable to drive.

If you are a qualified driver under age 25, you may also face restrictions on the type of vehicle you can hire. You may also need to pay for slightly higher insurance premiums.

What kind of licence do I need?

If your drivers licence is printed in English, you do not need anything else to rent a car at Dublin airport. However, if it is written in another language you must also carry an International Driving Permit with you at all times. It might pay to also keep your passport handy, just in case.

What are the driving rules in Ireland?

If you drive in Ireland, you will need to keep left. Speed is measured in kilometres and fuel in litres. When driving in built-up areas, stick to 50kmh and on non-urban roads you can drive up to 80kmh. On national highways, the speed limit is 100kmh and this increases to 120kmh on motorways.

All passengers must wear seat belts and small children must be buckled into booster seats in the backseat of the car - these seats can be hired alongside your rental car in Dublin airport.

The Irish Road Safety Authority recommends you use daytime running lights.

Drinking and driving laws are very strict in Ireland, so just remember the legal alcohol limit is 50 milligrams of alcohol per 100 ml of blood.

What is town parking?

If you are planning to park your car in an Irish town, be aware that it might operate on street disk parking. This means you will need to buy a parking disk from a local retailer.

Make sure you do not exceed the allotted time as you could then be charged parking fines.
