Ireland "motorcoach" tour

Heading to Ireland in May--Dublin area. Originally planned to rent a car and just see what we could see, but I'm having second thoughts about driving on the left side of the road. Should we just leave the driving to someone else for 4-5 days and go with the flow??

Or take a chance - it is actually not too bad to drive on the left. It's perfectly fine on the wider roads, it's only iffy when you get out into the out-of-the-way places - which you wouldn't be able to get to on a motorcoach anyhow, as they wouldn't fit.

I've been to Ireland three times, and drove each time. The first trip (10 years ago) was before the EU widened many of the roads, and I had never driven on the left before. I was fine

I rented a car in Australia a few years ago for one day and on two occasions, I fastened my seatbelt and then realized the steering wheel was on the other side of the car.

Hello Mgdrive

I second Siobhan's suggestion, CIE tours have a good name, and are quite popular. You could also check out the following.

Driving in Ireland is a challenge, driving in Dublin is not for the faint hearted!!

Good luck

Lucie
