Driving in Ireland
Ireland is a great place for a driving holiday with mile upon mile of open road. In fact you will not see distances shown in miles because the Irish, in common with the rest of Europe, use kilomteres. And although there is a wonderful lack of traffic progress is not rapid as the roads are often twisty and narrow. So make sure you allow that little bit of extra time for your journey.
