Cars in Ireland: advantages and choice

Ireland is a small but diverse country that it makes sense to rent a car for travel. This way you can make stops anywhere, discovering small colorful villages, ancient castles, and in general – travel at your own pace and not depend on anyone.

Of course, if you love these epic bus tours, then by all means, book one. If you don’t have much time or don’t want to stress about driving in an unfamiliar country, then this is a good way to see Ireland. But if you are looking for adventure and don’t like established frameworks, you want to go wherever your eyes take you, then the only way out is a road trip!

What cars are preferred in Ireland?

The Irish Republic is a small country, and the size of the car market is correspondingly small. Over the past year, dealers managed to sell a little more than 105 thousand cars.

Among the brands Irish people choose are Toyota, Hyundai and Volkswagen. The most popular models are the Hyundai Tucson and Toyota Corolla. Despite the downward trend in demand for heavy fuel vehicles, they still maintain a confident leadership, ahead of gasoline, hybrid and electric models.
