You will receive the best information from the local staff about the closest pub offering traditional Irish fair, best shopping spots, family activities and the best places to enjoy the nightlife. Guest Houses Guest houses in Ireland are usually larger than B&Bs even though they are still family run. Most have between 5 and 15 guest rooms. Often guest houses are purpose built so that the rooms are generally larger and the facilities are more generous than B&Bs. You can expect to pay about the same as a 3 star hotel but with a more cozy and comfortable atmosphere. Resorts There are a growing number of health farms and spas throughout Ireland, which include spa baths, massage clinics, yoga retreats and beauty salons as well as accommodation.

  • 8. Rent A Car ● Many first-time American visitors will use a tour bus for the land portion of their trip because they are fearful of driving in a foreign country, on the wrong side of the road on the wrong side of the car. If you are a good driver, you will be able to handle driving in Ireland. If you're a little nervous, rent a car with an automatic transmission. It costs more, but shifting is one less thing to think about while driving. Auto Europe offers the best rates guaranteed on car rentals, as well as discount airfare and hotel reservations all over the world. With over 8,000 car rental locations world wide, Auto Europe truly is your one stop travel shop. In addition to car rentals, we also offer sports and prestige car rentals, long term leases, chauffeur drive services as well as cell phone and GPS rentals.
  • 9. Don’t Tip in Restaurants ● In America, waiters earn an hourly wage that’s far below the minimum wage with the expectation that tips will bring them up to and over the minimum wage. In Ireland, and Europe, waiters earn an hourly wage that’s far greater than American counterparts, so there’s no expectation to leave a tip for service. If you want to though, 10% is plenty.
  • 10. Recommended Driving Tours ● The Cliffs of Moher is Ireland’s most visited natural attraction with a magical vista that captures the hearts of up to 1 million visitors each year. The Cliffs rise up to 214 (700 feet) at the highest point and range for 8km over the Atlantic Ocean on the Western seaboard of Co. Clare. ● Conor Pass (Dingle Peninsula): The main road from Tralee to Dingle Town takes you 390m above sea level on a road that seems impossibly narrow and rough, but which offers extraordinary views. You may find yourself above the clouds here, and in places you can see for miles. It's an unforgettable drive, especially in the spring or fall, when the weather can create gorgeous skies.
  • 11. Keep a Euro in Your Pocket ● If you plan to shop for groceries, keep one Euro in your pocket. You’ll need a one Euro coin to get a shopping cart (a “trolley”), which gets returned to you when you put back the cart. Also, keep reusable grocery bags in your car. You’ll need them when you shop or you’ll have to buy bags. You also need to bag your own groceries.
  • 12. Language ● English is the spoken language in Ireland, even though Irish is the official language. It is taught in schools and mostly spoken in Gaeltachts or ‘Irish speaking’ areas in parts of Kerry, Cork, Galway, Mayo and Donegal. ● Book your trip to Ireland today & visit- www.AutoEurope.com
