Location information for Galway Airport

Galway is becoming one of the rapid-growing European cities but it still maintains its small-town atmosphere where anyone can feel welcome and at home. With several artisans, writers, and artists treating the city as their home, Galway ensures that a visit provides an artistic and creative treat to the senses. The Galway Airport is the main gateway to the sights and sounds of the city with flights from Dublin. Cheap car hire in Galway Airport is an option to get to the city centre that is 16 kilometres from the air hub. Otherwise, passengers can ride a bus or a taxi.

Lynch's Castle is among the key attractions in the centre of the city. It has been around since the year 1490 but some renovations where done in the 19th century. The city is also home to the Galway Cathedral that dominates its skyline.

Experiencing the artistic side of Galway is possible with visits to the Galway Arts Centre, housed within the townhouse of Lady Augusta Gregory, WB Yeats' patron. Inside, visitors can watch concerts, view exhibits, and attend readings. There is also the Galway City Museum that boasts a collection of city memorabilia, photographs, and local documents. The Nora Barnacle House is another place that should not be missed aside from the Eyre Square that was once called the John F Kennedy Park.

A festive atmosphere is present in the medieval quarter but visitors can also enjoy their time in restaurants and pubs that allow them to experience more of the city's culture and tradition with Irish music, fresh seafood, and Guinness. Leisure time can also be spent by fishing for sea trout and salmon in the River Corrib. Horseback riding is also a favored leisure activity along with golfing.

Most of Ireland's loveliest regions are only a few hours away by car from Galway. Availing cheap car hire in Galway Airport upon arrival gives visitors the privilege to drive to Connemara for its valleys, mountain passes, and bogs. Budget car rental also benefits visitors with trips to the Twelve Bens, a superb mountain range with picturesque views of the ocean and scenic hiking trails. Other places to visit include the Aran Islands for its pre-Christian and Christian remains, Spiddal town, and the Dun Aengus in Inishmore for its huge Iron Age stone forts.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?
