KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Limerick

  • Hire a car and enjoy Limerick’s architecture, culture and nature. A car will get you where you need to be without jumping from one transport method to another or walking. Visit King John’s Castle on King’s Island and St Mary’s Cathedral on Bridge Street within minutes, without the hassle of waiting on buses and trains. Car hire in Limerick gives you freedom of movement, saves time and makes travel convenient; get a clean, spacious and comfy car to drive around.
  • Shannon Airport (SNN), approximately 25 km west, has over 5,000 parking spaces available to host car hire in Limerick. The car hire offices are in the terminal building’s arrivals hall. Upon exiting the customs area, you take a right and follow the signs towards the Limerick car hire offices. You will take a shuttle to the vehicle car park to collect your car.
  • Driving in Limerick is on the left-hand side. You will find a sticker on the windscreen on the right-hand (driver) side, reminding you to keep left. Be careful when making right turns, and check all road directions. Watch out for cyclists and livestock that may jump into traffic without warning. You are likely to come across a toll when driving outside the city. Be as courteous as the locals, and use your blinkers.
  • When using car hire in Limerick, be aware of narrow roads that don’t have shoulders. In addition, the roads are windy and steep, demanding keenness from the driver. An occasional tractor is not an uncommon site on Limerick roads, and traffic may be slow. Hence, allocate enough time to get to your destination. Always check the treads on your tyres, because Limerick is quite wet. Be extra careful when driving, for visibility can be affected by rain and fog, especially on mountain roads.
  • Book your rental car in Limerick at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy rental cars in Limerick are around 18% cheaper than other car types, on average

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Limerick?

Some small cars available through KAYAK include the Renault Clio, Volkswagen Polo, Ford Ka, Ford Fiesta and Kia Picanto. You can get a wide selection of car hire in Limerick services to suit your every need, including luxury and SUV models. The small cars have good mileage and are suitable for small families and a few pieces of luggage. Medium cars such as the Toyota Corolla, Toyota Avensis, Ford Mondeo or Open Insignia are ideal for a larger group. They have more power to conquer the challenging mountainous terrain if you want to explore all that Limerick offers.

  • What is the speed limit in Limerick?

    The general rule for visitors to Limerick is to drive slowly, due to the road conditions. The speed limit while driving on the motorways is 120 km/h; national roads and dual-carriageways are set at 100 km/h; regional roads are 80 km/h (50 mph), and it’s 50 km/h in urban areas. However, a special 30 km/h speed limit is enforced by the local council. It is important to note that cars in Limerick have both km/h and mph gauges. Speed cameras on motorways have been launched, and over-speeding fines may be as high as ₤ 80 (A$ 117). It would help if you always observed the speed limit road signs, to avoid penalties.

  • Where are the best places to park in Limerick?

    Parking in Limerick needs you to have some cash at hand. The pay-and-display parking employed in the area does not accept cards but coins. Please note that it is illegal to park where there are double yellow lines on the side of the road. On-street parking in Limerick is cheap, from approximately 50 c to ₤ 1 (75c to A$ 1.15). You can park at Harvey’s Quay or Henry Street, which you can book online using apps. You should consult your hotel on parking options available, for some provide free parking. The airport also hosts numerous car parks for long and short stays, which Limerick car hire operators can use.

Shauna, an agent at the Limerick store was exceptional . She made sure we knew all the features of the car and helped us connect Apple play so we had great GPS on our trip. Drop Off At the Dublin airport went smoothly as we had great (verbal and written) directions about getting it back. We were pleasantly surprised to have a hybrid car. Of note is the Dublin airport Enterprise closes at 2pm on Sundays.
