KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Killarney

  • Killarney, a small town in Kerry County, Ireland, is adorned with a wide selection of attraction areas featured in its history and heritage, beautiful lakes, and Rolling Mountain, making it well worth a visit. And there is no better way to explore the city than with car rentals in Killarney. Killarney has public transportation, but getting to your destination takes a while. In addition to getting noisy, public transportation is usually crowded and operates on preset schedules. With Killarney car rentals, you can get across the city seamlessly, so you have the comfort of enjoying your trips. For example, you can stop at your convenience to explore Torc Waterfall, Ross Castle, Muckross Abbey, and Torc Mountains.
  • Hiring car rentals in Killarney at the airport lets you leap into adventure as soon as you land. Milltown (Kerry) Kerry Airport (KIR) is the nearest airport to Killarney, about 7 miles (13 km) from the city center. The airport hosts several car rental agencies, including Avios, Budget, Alamo, Europcar, and Hertz. The car rental desks are at the airport terminal in the arrivals hall. Even if you reserved your Killarney car rental online, you’ll still need to go to the rental desks for clearance. You will be directed to the parking lots once you have presented your documentation.
  • As a small town in Ireland, finding many narrow roads and one-way streets in Killarney is unsurprising. Nonetheless, driving your car rentals in Killarney can be a manageable experience. But you should be mindful of other road users. For example, jaywalking is still a concern in the city. You should also be mindful of commuter buses. Instead of only stopping at designated bus stops, bus drivers will often stop in the middle of the road whenever they see potential passengers.
  • Significant cities in Ireland experience road congestion during rush hours; Killarney is no exception. Typically, the weekday rush hour runs from 7:00 am to 9:00 am, while evening rush hour runs from 4:00 to 7:00 pm. Traffic in Killarney is typical during rush hours because there is only one road accessing the city. The streets are also busy with cars and pedestrians.

4.4 Mediocre

Jul 2016

KAYAK

Pros:

cost. drop off was smooth

Cons:

We had just rented a car from Budget and returned it on a Wednesday. We were back that Saturday for another rental car. The office said we had to have another notice from my credit card company saying that it covered the car in Ireland because that notice had to be sent to them 48 hours in advance of picking up the car, rather than when we had sent it to them to pick up the first car. I had to return the next day with that paperwork for them. Very inconvenient. The time was incorrect on the car and we couldn't figure out how to fix that. The heat was always on as well and we couldn't figure out how to turn it off. The car screeched as well. I agree with other reviewers that reviewing the features of the car would be helpful. I also agree with another reviewer on October 15 and gave the review a 2.8. It looks like I rented that same car the first time I rented from Budget on this trip and the clutch gave out entirely and we were stuck from 7 pm until midnight until they could send out someone to verify that indeed it was a mechanical failure and not me so that I didn't have to pay for it and only then did they call for a tow and work out giving me another car the next morning. This mechanical failure entirely set back my vacation plans as we could not see what we wanted because the car wouldn't work. Budget needs to have mechanics drive the cars once they are returned to make sure they are working properly before sending them out again.
