Exploring The Emerald Isle with Sixt Car Hire

We recently visited Ireland, also known as 'The Emerald Isle' and fell in love with this beautiful, green, naturally stunning country. We had decided the best way to see as much of the country was to hire a car and so we opted to hire with Sixt Car Hire and we could not have been more happy with the service, vehicle & overall experience with Sixt.

We arrived into Dublin Airport and quickly found the Sixt desk inside the airport where the staff were friendly, helpful and efficient. After we had sorted out all the paperwork the four of us jumped in the Sixt shuttle bus which took us a few minutes away to the Sixt car depot where we picked up our car!

In less than an hour and after landing we were driving out of the airport! We couldn't have been more impressed with the quality and efficiency of the customer service which we received from Sixt both at the airport desk & at the depot.

We had requested a car that would comfortably fit 4 adults and were provided with a Toyota Corolla and when we arrived were very happy to find we had been given a brand new vehicle! The car was in perfect condition both inside and out, spotlessly clean and was impeccable to drive. It was the best car I've ever driven and a pleasure to explore the country in absolute comfort, reliability and luxury.

As soon as we landed in Dublin we headed straight over to the untamed West Coast & began exploring this invigorating, naturally stunning part of the world! We then spent the next few days exploring Galway, the Wild Atlantic Way, Cliffs of Moher and just enjoying driving through this stunning of this part admiring the scenery.

I can't more highly recommend hiring a car to travel around Ireland. We all loved the fact that we could work on our own schedule as there are so many gorgeous stops around the West Coast (and whole country) and with the freedom and flexibility of our own car we could stop whenever and wherever we wanted.

I highly recommend hiring with Sixt Car Hire. They were super friendly, helpful and the whole process was simple & efficient in addition to our car being extremely comfortable, spacious, luxurious and reliable.

Thanks to Sixt for hosting our trip.

  1. We rented a car while in Ireland last year and couldn't agree more. (Although as Americans, it was an adjustment driving on the "wrong" side of the road!) The Wild Atlantic Way is amazing, and your photos attest to it!

    1. It definitely is the best way to see Ireland isn't it Betsy! That must have been really hard to adjust! I struggled to get used to their teeny tiny roads and I was still driving on the side of the road I am used to! So kudos to you :) Glad to hear you loved Ireland too!

  2. Sounds like a great trip! I must admit that I don't love doing long road trips, but the things you get to see along the way are so worth it. I love your shot of that colorful street!

    1. Thanks Jessica! Yeah that colourful street is a small town called Kinvarra, I loved it! :) I love road trips but will admit I usually don't drive a lot of it, I prefer being passenger and letting Dan do the driving :) haha!

  5. I absolutely love Sixt. I use them all over the US. They always seem to upgrade me too and their customer service is much better than Avis or Hertz. Glad you had a wonderful experience too!!

  7. You will also have the chance to watch the sightseeing around. Driving your car, you must be concentrated and you miss a lot of significant things.automoves

  9. This means that if your car is worth less than the amount owing and you want to sell/part-exchange it, you would have to pay out any difference (called negative equity) before even thinking about paying a deposit on your next car.Clicking Here
