Driving Around Ireland

Jump to last reply

My wife and I will be visiting Ireland for the first time during early October (2016). We'll be flying into Dublin on a Saturday, and flying out of Dublin the following Saturday. Two questions:
1) Apart from "the other side of the road" thing...what are some tips out there for: renting a car, insurance, driving conditions, drive times (say Dublin to Killarney...), roads conditions and other destinations on the Southern half of the country...
2) Does 7 days seem like enough time to take a road trip down to Killarney (area), then over to Blarney, and back up to Dublin...or is that just too rushed? (*We enjoy moving about and exploring new countries/destinations; and can always adjust on the fly. So, really just looking for feedback from anyone who's driven the roads of Ireland and may have a story to tell.)
Thanks, in advance!
