Car & Van Rental at Mayo

County Mayo is in the west of Ireland and offers a natural beauty that is easy to fall in love with. The international airport in the county has made it a viable commercial region for local and regional businesses. Mayo’s breathtaking countryside and magnificent islands give tourists plenty to see and opportunities to build lasting memories. The different towns offer a little bit of everything, from surfing or fishing to cliff diving, and Mayo carries a rich archaeological history that makes the place a treasure trove for any buff. Experience a lively community of warm individuals who go out of their way to welcome guests and show them what the local culture is all about. A hire car makes it easier for residents to get around and for visitors to plan their holiday activities. Enterprise has branches in Mayo that you can turn to for different rental solutions.

Our Vehicles for Hire in County Mayo

Rental vehicles come in a slew of options. The upside of a car hire in Mayo is that you can choose a stylish, highly efficient vehicle without worrying about overrunning your budget. The cars we have in our fleet, for example, are well balanced to meet all sorts of requirements. Compacts are great for individuals or small groups who just need to get from A to B. On the other hand, a large compact will align with the transport requirements of a small family. Saloons have an ideal balance between comfort and practicallity.

We also have SUVs that are ideal for the Achill scenic drive, which is a must-see on your list of best places to visit in Mayo. The lakes and mountains offer glorious sights, and this type of vehicle ensures you can enjoy these without struggling on the mountain roads. If planning a group tour of the sights in Mayo, a people carrier will guarantee that you provide sufficient travelling space for everyone and their luggage.

Attractions in Mayo

When in Mayo, it is possible to drive from one end of the county to the other as you explore the distinct features that the area has in store. Angling is a popular outdoor activity, especially with the pristine waters that the county offers. You can drive to several locations, such as Cong, to get different fishing experiences. The Michael Davitt Museum is one historical attraction that will give an insight into one of Ireland’s most notable patriots. You can top that educational tour off with a trip to the National Museum of Country Life. The still waters of the lake, the elegantly manicured gardens and the spectacular surrounding will give your holiday a touch of natural splendour.

A tour to the Royal Theatre in Castlebar should be on your discovery timetable. Achill Island is the epitome of magnificence and offers a great self-drive destination. Other journeys that will make your car hire a worthy investment include The Blue Flag Tour, The Lake District Drive, the Lough Conn Drive, The Atlantic Tour and the North Mayo Historical Tour. The Ashford Castle in Cong is another excellent addition to the Mayo culture. An Ireland holiday cannot be authentic without a tribute to St. Patrick, the country’s patron saint. The Pilgrimage site of Croagh Patrick is the best place to achieve this, with its archaeological and historical material.

Places to Visit Outside Mayo

Mayo is not the only place you are limited to when on the west coast of Ireland. With your Mayo car rental taken care of, you can enjoy drives to different neighbours, such as Galway, where the Connemara National Park will fill your holiday with natural splendour. The Glengowla Mines and Dun Aengus are other attractions that you should include in a to-see list. You can opt to head to Clare and catch a glimpse of the cliffs of Moher or add to your ornithologist’s knowledge by stopping at the Burren Birds of Prey Centre. For some whale watching action, the nearby town of Cork is perfect. There is the Blarney Castle and Stone, and Gougane Barra Park to consider as well.
