Deros are probably the best know tour operators in Killarney http://derostours.com/new/ Paddywagon operate from Killarney and Cork http://www.paddywagontours.com/ Happy Tours are a new setup in Cork but getting great respect http://www.happytoursireland.com/ and travel around between places by Bus Eirean is relatively easy. http://www.buseireann.ie/

I would reccomend going to the seaside village standhill in sligo.There is great scenery and landscape.Sligo is repudiated as being where the first settlers came to Ireland. The Carrowmore tombs, located only five minutes away by car have megalithic burial chambers that pre-date the pyramids an amazing past of 7,000 years and are among the oldest structures in the known world. The court cairn which is the grave of Queen Medb on Knocknarea overlooks the tombs of Carrowmore and is magnificently haunting when viewed on a crisp winters day and enchanting when experienced in the warm summer sun. The sight of watching the sun sink into Strandhill bay with Knocknarea as its backdrop conjures up the mythical beauty that WB Yeats often wrote about.
There is also a 19th Century thatched cottage called Dollys Cottage which is a perfect and unblemished example of a thatched cottage in Famine time Ireland.There is also a great hotel in the village called strandhill lodge and suites where you can stay and many great reastaurants.There is also great surfing there.

I was double thinking about renting a car, but when I checked online the rent is toooo expensive..Wow....after €550 small car, for 10 days, I then have to add the Super Insurance....am I missing something..never rented a car and I drive only automatic. €550 for me is ok...but well when you add the Super CDW and petrol it will shoot up.

Is a small car OK for Ireland or should an SUV (4x4) be better? We are only 2 people, with 2 80x45cm suit cases.

theabez a small car is fine for just a couple

reutiz Auto transmission can almost double the price of car hire in Ireland. Its a difficult point whether Ireland can be done without a car and as I said earlier there are some places you just need a car to see, but there are many places accessible by public transport and tours. Consider if you need a car for 10 days or maybe just 5 or none at all would do.
