Roads in Ireland

Driving in IrelandIn Ireland, we drive on the left hand side of the road.  Speed limits are in km per hour.  If travelling on the M50 (motorway around Dublin), beware that this is a toll road without a toll booth – it uses cameras to detect your licence plate.  eFlow Ireland gives information on how to pay this toll.  All other toll routes in Ireland have toll booths and barriers. Only motorways/tunnels have tolls in Ireland.  Petrol/gasoline and diesel are widely available.  If you are planning on hiring a car, be aware that almost all cars in Ireland have manual transmissions (not automatic transmission), so hiring an automatic car without prior arrangement can be difficult and is generally more expensive than hiring a manual.
