KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Killarney

  • Car hire in Killarney gives you the freedom to explore the beautiful Irish city and enjoy the cultural extravaganza. You can see more attractions with our set of wheels compared to public transport. It is also cheaper and allows you to manage your time well, as you will not miss a bus or waste time waiting for its arrival or departure. Avoid carrying your luggage around by popping it in the boot. Visit Killarney National Park in the comfort of your vehicle and tour it at your own pace.
  • Car hire companies like Avis, Hertz, Budget and Europcar have desks at the main arrivals hall of Kerry Airport (KIR). Proceed to pick up your car at the long-term car park, an approximately 1-minute walk from the main terminal. You can also book your car in advance online, to reduce the time spent at the airport and save some money.
  • Always drive your car hire in Killarney on the left and overtake on the right. Most cars from Killarney car hire are stick shift. You should practise before taking one. Always watch out for pedestrians stepping on the road. At unmarked intersections, the car on the right always has the right of way.
  • Killarney city is one of the cities in Ireland that the Ring of Kerry passes through and is considered the beginning by many visitors. You should be cautious while driving there, as the roads are close to the cliff edge. The roads around Killarney National Park are also very mountainous and lined with large rhododendrons. The rural roads are narrow and subject to light traffic. Some of the urban roads have no verge or shoulder for pulling over.
  • Book your rental car in Killarney at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
