Motorhome Rental Dublin

Dublin is an old Viking village that later is beloved as a great cultural hub for music (U2, the Script), literature (Oscar Wilde, James Joyce) and beer. The name originates from the Celtic word “dubh Linn”, meaning black pool, referring to the dirty pool in Dublin castle. The city is split in two by the River Liffey, with the main streets being O’Connell Street in the north and Grafton Street on the southside.

Temple Bar District, just south of the Liffey, is known for its Irish pubs and street musicians, as well as the city’s most famous pub (and tourist trap) “The Temple Bar”. If you are looking to hire a campervan in Dublin, you should explore more than just the city centre, as there are many remarkable areas within a 30 minutes drive. We recommend the cosy neighbourhood Rathmines, the fishing village Howth, the coastal areas Killiney, Bray and Malahide as well as the Wicklow Mountains.

Getting to Dublin

Dublin city is on the east side of Ireland along the Irish Sea, 100 km west of Holyhead in Wales. Dublin airport is 7km north of the city, operating as the country’s main international hub, with the main local airlines being Aer Lingus and Ryanair. Dublin Port connects the city with the ferry to the Isle of Man, Holyhead and Liverpool, with the last two operating as road connections to continental Europe through the English Channel. The motorway M50 circles the city and connects to most of the island’s main roads. North on M1 to Belfast in Northern Ireland, north-west to Donegal through M3, the M6 to Galway, and south on M7 and M8 to Limerick and Cork respectively. The Luas (tram) and the Dart (commuter train) are the main means of public transport, together with busses.

Parking in Dublin

Most parking in Dublin is “pay and display” roadside parking, where pay through a parkometer (usually €2-4/h). A rule-of-thumb is always parking in visible and busy spaces. St. Mark’s Church on Pearse Street offers half-day prices at around €8 (pre-booking available). Q-Park Dawson Street has good offers on daily and nightly rates. In car parks, pay extra attention when parking a Dublin motorhome hire to the height, as some campervans might be higher than the standard height restrictions allow. Outside the city, you can park at Clontarf Road and hop on a train to Connolly Station or park at the Luas car park at Red Cow stop.
