Countries don’t come much more ready-made for road-tripping than Ireland. Measuring just 480 kilometres (300 miles) from rugged Banba’s Crown in County Donegal at its tip to the ocean-bashed Brow Head in County Cork at its toe, it’s a beautifully proportioned destination for a self-drive holiday.

Car hire in Ireland is easy, and so too is finding adventure, whether you’re coasting around the gorgeous headlands of the Ring of Kerry or meandering through charming Connemara.
