    Essentials for driving in Kerry

    You can pick-up your car hire at Kerry Airport, which is near the town of Killarney. Although County Kerry is the 5th largest county in Ireland, it is still largely rural. When driving around the region, remember that it is not unusual to share the road with slow-moving farm machinery, livestock and wildlife. County Kerry is also the most mountainous county in Ireland, and roads can become quite windy and steep. As with the UK and Northern Ireland, in the Republic of Ireland, you will drive on the left-hand side of the road. Ensure you familiarise yourself with the legal driving requirements, road symbols and stick to the legal speed limit, which can change during poor weather.

    Driving Licence Requirements

    It is a requirement that visiting motorists carry their valid Australian State or Territory driving licence. It is recommended that you also carry with you an International Driving Permit, which must be obtained before you leave Australia. Some suppliers require this document to hire a car. The minimum age to hire a car in Ireland is 23 years, though most suppliers may have a minimum age between 25 and 30 years. Most suppliers charge a fee for young drivers (25 and under) usually for insurance purposes.

    Tolls and Freeways in Kerry

    There are a number of toll roads, bridges and tunnels which connect the larger towns and cities in Ireland. If you are driving between towns, the fastest route is usually the motorways, and sections of the larger motorways operate toll charges. Generally, you will pay at the barrier to the toll zone. The toll charges vary anywhere from €2 to €10, depending on the time of day, the type of vehicle, and the particular road, bridge or tunnel used.

    Crossing the border in Ireland

    Some suppliers allow car hires to be driven in Ireland and Northern Ireland without restrictions. Some cars are permitted to travel to the United Kingdom for an additional fee, though you will need to confirm at the time of booking that the car is permitted to be transported on ferries. Both international and domestic one-way hires are on a request basis with the suppliers and include minimum duration conditions.
