    We flew in and out of Dublin on our honeymoon. When we left IE, we were all the way in the southwest corner and drove cross-country to Dublin to catch our flight. But it’s such a small country that it only took a few hours to get there. (And it’s ridiculously scenic, so the drives were never boring).

    Shannon might be your best bet to start with, though you shouldn’t have trouble either way. 🙂

    Check out the cost difference and take into account your other transportation methods once you are there to get where you want to go.

    You need an international driver’s license, I think they’re good for 6 months. The west coast is gorgeous, you’re gonna have a blast exploring. If you have enough time, I’d recommend a visit to the Connemara National Park, Cliffs of Moher, and the Dingle peninsula.

    You shouldn’t need an international driver’s license unless you will be driving for more than 3 months.  I’ve travelled internationally heaps of times, including Ireland twice, rented a car, and driven around for two weeks at a time on my American license – it was never a problem.

    And yes, flying into Shannon is definitely the preferable option.  It’s a much quieter part of the country where you can actually get used to driving on the left side of the road before you get into the crazy Dublin traffic.  The west coast of Ireland is also the most beautiful IMO.  Enjoy!
