Driving in SW Ireland

Jump to last reply

Have a last minute opportunity to go to Ireland in 3 days! Would be a 10 day trip flying in and out of Shannon and concentrating on southwest Ireland (have been to Dublin on a previous trip). Possible destinations are: Galway, Cliffs of Moher, Rock of Cashel, County Cork and Ring of Kerry and Dingle Pennisula. I usually travel by train in Europe as I don’t know how to drive a stick shift. However it seems like Dingle Pennisula and Ring of Kerry are best by car and I have a few questions: 1) better to get my own car or go on an organized tour of these areas? 2) I heard the traffic is bad in summer on Ring of Kerry – would that be the case at end of May/beginning of June 3) Is it easy to rent an automatic transmission in Ireland? Normally this is not easy in Europe but I thought it might be easier due to the left side drive (in Australia automatics were plentiful since they didn’t want people to have to shift with left hand if not used to it) and 4) in general is it easy to get around this area by train/bus? Thanks!
