"Aer Lingus is pretty cool out..." Ireland Transportation Tip by McLaughlin

Ireland Transportation: 232 reviews and 169 photos

Aer Lingus is pretty cool out of Boston. But Delta is less expensive out of Atlanta. I always fly into Shannon, it allows plenty of open road to adjust to driving on the left.
Rent a car! Driving is not too bad. The whole left side thing is a little scary for about 20 minutes. Irish drivers drive fast, but they adhere to an unwritten code, they use blinkers religiously, use the shoulder and assist passing if someone is tailgating. Get the insurance straightened out BEFORE you go. Use the DART in Dublin. Driving is very tricky there.
