Car Rental at Clare
County Clare is an exciting destination for active holidaymakers. The area is defined by several bodies of water, offering spectacular views and magnificent scenery. To the west of County Clare is the Atlantic Ocean while Galway Bay borders it to the north. County Clare is also home to the longest river in Ireland, namely the River Shannon to the south-east, as well as offering great access to the Shannon Estuary to the south, while Lough Derg is to the north-east. This fantastic geography promises a long meandering coastline that will make any summer holiday memorable.
The topography of County Clare offers its own attractions, from beautiful gardens to natural landmarks that will fill your trips with wonder. Delve into the different histories of the various towns and villages of County Clare as you drive through the region. Make use of a hire car to ensure you have complete flexibility to visit anywhere you wish. Enterprise Rent-a-Car has an office in the county, as well as the neighbouring areas of Limerick and Galway.
Our Vehicles for Hire in Clare
So, you've arranged all details for your holiday in County Clare but are not sure which rental vehicle will best meet your needs? At Enterprise, we offer different classes of vehicles, giving every customer the chance to find the most suitable one. Two groups may have the same holiday destination, but the rental requirements may vary significantly. For example, a couple who intend to travel together for some backpacking or camping for 14 days could be well served by a mini or compact. A family who is planning to do the same thing with three kids in tow will not only need a vehicle that accommodates everyone travelling, but must also have sufficient storage for all their belongings. If a smaller child is part of the group, then necessary considerations include space for a car seat and stroller. A large compact would, in such circumstances, be a more favourable selection .
People carriers are also excellent choices when you need a good amount of space. Our people carriers can accommodate seven people, and we also have nine-passenger minibuses available, too. This class of vehicle is designed to meet the demands of long-distance travel without compromising on comfort. SUVs are ideal if a trip involves driving in mountainous regions. If the Wild Atlantic Way is part of your journey’s itinerary, then a four-wheel drive is the vehicle you need to avoid getting stuck mid-journey; 4x4s are structured to be considerably spacious, which is another reason they are a great consideration for family travels. For business needs, our car hire options in Clare also ensure we can provide commercial vans for hire, too.
Attractions in Clare
The Cliffs of Moher are the most famed attractions here, and for very good reason, as their magical vistas and natural grandeur are hard to ignore. Go to the clifftop and enjoy the picture-perfect views of the waters below, or take your hired car and travel the Loop Head scenic drive, which starts from Kilkee and continues along the coastlines and proceeds to Loop Head Lighthouse. Along the way, you can stop for some interesting sights such as the Moneen Church, Bridges of Ross and even the hills of Connemara. Ennis Friary is made up of various structures from the 13th Century, epitomising Christ's Passion through different objects and carvings. Learn a bit of history at the Clare Archeology Centre and the Clare Museum, then head to Dromore Wood for a noise-free walk along the river and catch a glimpse of the O’Brien Castle from the 17th century. The Knappogue Castle and Walled Garden, Shannon Dolphins and Wildlife Centre, East Clare Heritage Centre and Dolin Cave are other places of interest.
Places to Visit Outside Clare
Hiring a car for your time in Clare ensures you can expand your horizons and explore some of the surrounding regions. County Galway is where some of Ireland’s largest lakes are found and Lough Corrib, Lough Mask and Lough Derg have particularly interesting scenery. The Connemara National Park is another attraction to include in your itinerary as it offers a broad selection of wildlife to see. Connemara itself is a vision of beauty and splendour as it is lined with meadowlands, woodlands, lakes, rivers, hills and mountains. Kylemore Abbey is the ideal environment for a quiet getaway with its serene nature trails, a gorgeous walled garden and rich woodlands. County Limerick and County Tipperary are other places of interest to visit.
Airport Car Hire
Shannon Airport serves travellers coming in and out of County Clare, and Enterprise has a branch there. You can arrange for a car hire in advance so that you can drive directly from the airport, eradicating the stress which comes with finding public transport.
