Driving tips

People in Ireland drive on the left-hand side of the roads so for tourists used to driving on the right-hand side, there’s a bit of a learning curve involved before they will feel comfortable driving around in the cities here. The speed limits here are described in kilometres per hour. On the motorway, you shouldn’t go faster than 120km/h while in towns and cities, the speed limit is 50km/h.

In larger cities, traffic can become painfully slow during rush-hour. It can be a bit hard finding suitable parking space in the larger cities. In Dublin, if you manage to park your car in a no-parking zone or you don’t come back before the time on the parking metre expires, your car will be subjected to wheel clamping. It costs about 80 Euros to release your clamped car so you will want to be careful to avoid getting into this mess.
