Car Rental in Newry
Situated on the border between the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland UK, Newry is almost equidistant between Dublin and Belfast. Founded over 850 years ago, it became a port in 1742 when it was joined to Lough Neagh by the highest ever canal built in Britain or Ireland. From those early days, modern Newry has grown in size and stature from a bustling market town to receiving city status in Queen Elizabeth’s Golden Jubilee celebrations of 2002.
Newry has become the second most popular shopping destination in Ireland. Its large modern shopping complexes of The Quays and Buttercrane attract millions of consumers from the south to enjoy the retail experience, cafes, restaurants and hotels, every year
With its coastal position, Newry is ideally situated to be used as a base by its many visitors. Those wishing to enjoy the rugged coastline and explore the beautiful countryside of the Emerald Isle can choose from a large range of vehicles to rent for their stay.
The nearest Enterprise office is situated at Portadown, and we can arrange to have your vehicle where you want it, when you want it.
