Car Hire Waterford Airport: Your Ireland Experience Begins

By: Lakshmi Reddy

If you're planning to visit Ireland for a tour or for some other reasons, then you might consider getting a car rental in order to have more control and ease in your travel pace. This country, being Europe's third largest island, lies on the north- west portion of the continent. It is divided into several towns and one of these is Waterford.

Dubbed as the "Crystal County" and "The Glass Factory", it is located in the south east part of Ireland. Home of the famous Waterford Crystals, this county was established ever since the Viking times, thus making Waterford City the isle's oldest city.

Using car hire while traveling around allows you to see the sites and experience the charms the place has to offer. In Comeragh Mountains and Nire Valleys, you will get to embrace the fantastic mountains that form the spine of the county. If you want to see fantastic views of the bay, then go to Dungarvan and the Copper Coast. The latter is full of stunning stretched bays. It is great for you if you are fond of diving, swimming, or just lying around on the beach and enjoy the view around you. These will give you not just panoramic views of the bay but all other seascapes and cliffs, as well.

On the Eastern part of the county, you will find the Gaultier Coast, which is a beautiful peninsula banked by the Tramore Bay on one side and the Waterford Harbor on the other side. This place is more of a picturesque fishing village at Cheekpoint and estuary car ferry port. With your car hire, this is a big plus as it will assist you in getting from the main island to another island. Other than the panoramic views of the bay areas, you can also opt for long drives. Such is offered by the Lismore and the Vee drive.

In this very beautiful drive, you can see a lot of gardens and pet farms as you enjoy the dips and climbs and constant changing scenes. The county also has many other things to offer. You will find a lot of ecclesiastical landmarks including the cathedrals of St.Patrick, Grey friars, Black Olives Church and the like. If you want to see treasures, then go to Waterford's Treasures at the Granary which contains gold, bronze, silver, and other precious metals and even historical pieces of paper. All you have to do is get Car Hire Waterford and a map of the entire place to help you in seeing its scenic places.

Traveling to the county can be done by the boat or ferry, by airplane and of course, by car. If you get in by plane and want to have a car during your entire visit, then get car at the Waterford Airport. You also have the option of booking your car prior to arriving at the airport and this will be cheaper. If you want to drive your own rental car, then you must have an international driver's license.
