Bus and Train
While the public transport is good, outside of the major cities Ireland is a country best explored in a car. It will allow you to turn down quaint farm roads that lead you to nowhere in particular, but make travelling in Ireland a delight. All the major hire companies have offices dotted throughout the country.
