Tips To Drive a Rental RV in Ireland

Road network:

Thanks to grants from the EU, Ireland’s roads are now mostly in excellent condition. Because of the sparse population, fine scenery can usually be seen either side of your vehicle. Petrol stations are abundant around the Emerald Isle. If driving from Dublin to the North it is mostly dual carriageway, with a toll way at the border, so have some change in Euros ready

Speed limits:

Urban roads:50kph
Provincial roads:80-100kph
National roads and motorways:120kph

Alcohol limits:

0.08 per cent, with the police regularly policing roads and handing out heavy fines to law-breakers.

Safety:

Driving in Ireland is on the road’s left-hand side. The roads are in good condition, with most parts of all towns and cities accessible, meaning the AA can respond quickly. Never use a mobile phone when driving in Ireland. Keep a few Euros in the van for the occasional road toll in and around Dublin.

Irish Weather Overview (cloudy with a hint of sun)

Expect rain, but it is often short-lived with the sun reappearing as quickly as it disappeared. The weather gives Ireland some of its charm and is often talked about in the local pubs and shops.

The Atlantic Ocean and its effect on the Gulf Stream give Ireland a relatively mild climate, especially considering the country’s northern latitude. Temperatures differ according to region, with the central and eastern areas having a more extreme climate. However, the temperate oceanic climate means that winters are never very cold and summers are rarely scorching hot. Snow is rare in the winter, though rainfall is eminent, with the southwest region experiencing the most rainfall. The southeast is the sunniest and the driest part of Ireland, having a continental climate. The northwest region of Ireland is the coldest part of the country, though snow is rarely seen here, except for the mountain regions in County Monaghan. The most pleasant weather in Ireland is from May to August, though autumn is also favourable.
