Irelands Hidden Drives

After a hard day’s work there’s nothing better than a little you time. One way to escape the hustle and bustle is to take to the road and enjoy a scenic drive. One place that’s filled with beautiful scenery and many hidden gems is Ireland and here’s our top pick of Irish drives.

Bettystown and Laytown

The two villages of Bettystown and Laytown are situated on the east coast of Ireland. Both villages offer beautiful unspoilt views of the Irish Sea and are popular holiday spots amongst Dubliners. The drive to the villages from Dublin is scenic and once there you can enjoy the inexpensive accommodation and manicured golf course.

Cavan Lakes

Cavan lakes are home to a total of 365 lakes, they say there’s one for each day of the year. Located sixty miles from Dublin the drive is one of scenic wonder and if you decide to stop off along the way you’ll be spoilt for choice. One place you may choose to see is Drogheda, one of Ireland’s oldest towns, although if you want to escape the busy lifestyle it may not be for you as it is a particularly busy tourist spot.

New Ross, Wexford

Home to the Kennedy’s before they moved to the new world of America New Ross is steeped in history and sits on the River Barrow. There are many attractions in New Ross including a recreated famine ship and the Irish National Historic Park.

Beauty Burren, Clare

One of Ireland’s most scenic drives Beauty Burren is in North West Clare and is a 68km drive. Enjoy the best of both worlds as you enjoy both countryside and coastal scenery as you overlook the Atlantic and Galway Bay. The route starts from Kilfenora and ends at Black Head, you’ll also pass through the lovely spa town of Lisdoonvarna.

These are just a few of the amazing drives you can enjoy whether you live in Ireland or are just visiting.

Before you take to the road remember these few vital things:

  • Your car insurance – Chill Insurance offer car insurance Ireland.
  • Make sure your car is taxed.
  • Take a look at car regulations to ensure your car is safe to drive on Irish roads and don’t forget any important phone numbers in case of a breakdown.
  • Take some spare water, just to be on the safe side.

Happy Driving!
