Car Rental at Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown

The county of Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown (DLR) is part of the Dublin region in Leinster. It takes its name from a former borough and barony – Dun Laoghaire and Rathdown, respectively. DLR may be Ireland’s smallest county, but what it lacks in size, it makes up for in appeal. The Irish Sea borders the county in the east, and that means a vibrant coastline to explore when visiting. From surfing or cliff jumping to just relaxing on the superb beaches, the coastline here promises entertainment. For those who prefer to explore on their travels, the towns, villages and suburbs that make up the county are just waiting to be discovered. Start from the county town of Dun Laoghaire and venture into Cherrywood to Killiney. After exploring the interesting places in Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown, you can check out the various restaurants and entertainment hubs in the county. With a rented car from Enterprise Rent-a-Car, you can drive across the countryside as you take in the breathtaking sights.

Our Vehicles For Hire in Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown

Offering such diverse possibilities, trips to Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown will never be the same. If you're travelling as a family, renting a small car for your trip allows you to conveniently explore the area at your own pace. Small cars have the advantage of navigating through narrow streets with ease, and they also make parking simple, though they should not be considered if you hope to traverse the smaller, country roads in adverse weather conditions. In these cases, a four-wheel drive is much more suitable for tackling the mountain roads. For those travelling as a group of adventurers, together with their hefty climbing and surfing equipment, a people carrier ensures transportation is simple. For anyone relocating to Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown, we offer a number of commercial vans, too.

Go to Sandyford and be amazed by the splendour of Fernhill Gardens, which contain over forty acres of azaleas, trees, shrubs and woodland.

Besides food, you can find antiques and crafts from the region, too. With a hired car, you can even drive to the heritage town of Dalkey, where the medieval era is epitomised in a majority of the buildings and narrow streets.
