Is driving within the city of Dublin itself a hassle? I've driven in Ireland before without issue, but not in Dublin. Our thought is to rent a car at Dublin airport and drive into the city for a few hours before heading for the hinterlands.
We could bus or taxi in as an alternative and then rent a car on our way out from dublin, but we'll be carrying luggage and the double transportation arrangements might consume too much time.
If you have experience driving to and in dublin, please let me know your opinion. Thanks.
