Waterford is the oldest city in Ireland and the birthplace of Waterford Crystal. The city was once a Viking trading post, and it still bears a few landmarks from this era including the renowned Reginald's Tower. In the time since then, beautiful feats of architecture such as the Bishop's Palace and Christ Church Cathedral have endowed Waterford with a fine cityscape; especially down towards Waterford Quay which comes alive in the evening. County Waterford is an enticing mix of rugged Irish bays and sprawling green countryside, so car hire in Waterford is recommended.
Rent a car in Waterford and you'll also have access to the House of Waterford Crystal which is just over a mile outside of the city centre. Become acquainted with the ancient history of the city via landmarks like Reginald's Tower, and admire the unique Georgian splendour of Waterford Cathedral. A tour of the Bishop's Palace is unmissable thanks to the thoughtful and highly original presentation of the city's history from 1700 onwards. Clonea Beach is just over half an hour away on the N25, and if you're looking for scenic drives in southern Ireland, the infamous Comeragh Route takes in natural wonders such as Mahon Falls and the 'Magic Road'.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
