Galway City is the fifth-biggest city in the Republic of Ireland and was once known as the City of the Tribes'. These warring tribes have long gone, though their names remain on many Galway street signs. Nowadays, Galway is a much more serene place to live, but weekend evenings liven up somewhat as large groups descend on the city's bars. Galway's nightlife is regarded as the best in this part of Ireland.
The best way to enjoy Galway City is to have a few nights out in the city's bars and use the city as a base to explore the nearby countryside. Many agencies offer daytrips from Galway, but it's much more enjoyable to explore independently with cheap car hire in Galway City.
Travelers arriving by air will find that several agencies offer car hire in Galway City at the airport. However, those arriving by bus or train can find other outlets across the city. Parking downtown is expensive and travelers are advised to cover the central areas on foot if at all possible.
Connemara National Park is a must-see for any visitors to western Ireland. Its green hills have been compared to scenery from a fairytale by some. The romantic castle at Kylemore Abbey is considered to be Galway's most popular tourist attraction. Connemara National Park is a little over an hour away with car rental in Galway City.
Driving around Connemara can be challenging for the inexperienced driver. There are plenty of tight turns and bends, as well as difficulties finding places to stop, due to the narrow roads. Drivers are advised to take it slowly and enjoy the fantastic views on the way.

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.
