Scenic Drives You Can Take From Dublin

Take one of these mini road trips from the Irish capital, leaving after breakfast and back in time for tea (or a pint of Guinness).

You can rub shoulders and clink pints with locals in Temple Bar, whose cobbled lanes are home to some of Dublin’s oldest (and liveliest) bars. You’ll probably take a tour of the Guinness Factory and maybe the Jameson Distillery, explore quirky museums dedicated to the ‘history’ of leprechauns, and dine along the banks of the Liffey.

There’s plenty to keep you occupied in Dublin, but you haven’t truly seen Ireland until you hit the road. With dramatic mountain ranges, coastal bluffs, and hills that aren’t only emerald but also jade, shamrock and forest green, this country was made for road trips.

Here’s our pick of scenic drives to give you a taste of the Emerald Isle, each easily accessible from Dublin in a hire car.
