Hiring a Car in Portlaoise
As Portlaoise stands a major crossroads in the Irish road system, hiring a car may be the best way to get here. This is especially true if you’re flying to Dublin Airport, which is about 60 miles, or an hour’s drive away via the M7. While bus services operate between the major cities of Dublin, Cork and Limerick, if you want the freedom of getting around on your own, then car rental is really the best option.
