Killarney Guide


Located in the stunning county of Kerry, Killarney draws loads of tourists to the green (and often wet) southwest of Ireland. It boasts stunning scenery, a lively atmosphere, excellent traditional music and a welcoming tourist infrastructure. Explore this area of Ireland and reserve car hire in Killarney right here. Fill in the form above and let us find you cheap deals for car hire across the market. Car rentals are always highly recommended by many visitors here.

Explore Killarney

The little town can scarcely cope with the influx of tourists during the summer, but there are plenty of B&B's, and it all adds to the atmosphere. Wandering around by foot is the only practical method of exploring the delightful lanes, packed with Irish craft and souvenir shops. If you really wish to enjoy the spirit of this tourist town, hop in a horse drawn cart.

The town sits beside Killarney's Lakes which are a group of beautiful lakes, dotted with quaint islands. The most noteworthy is Innisfallen and visitors can rent a rowing boat to get to these islands and visit the famous monastery built during the 7th century. The Lakes are best seen from a boat trip departing half hourly from Kenmare castle, and this national monument strikes a haunting image among the mist often found shrouding the lake. Muckcross House, also within the National Park, has been called the Jewel of Killarney and a visit to the grounds is a must.

Hiring a car and driving up to the ladies view gives the best views of the area, and several good waterfalls are encountered along the way. There are also good walking and cycling trails in the area. On a sunny day, the full-day cycle through the beautiful valley of the Gap of Dunloe, typified by massive glacial rocks, is rewarding, however the route is restricted to pedal power!

Being Ireland, there are endless pubs, and on rainy days the locals love to sit around pints of Guinness and spin a few yarns. But it is the excellent, diddly eye music, found in several venues about town, that is enchanting. Fiddles, penny whistles, bodhrans and Uilleann pipes all combine to create a captivating Celtic sound, unique to Ireland.

Drive around the Dingle Peninsula in your hire car and take in the spectacular coastline and stunning mountain views.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
