Given that Ireland is one of the most beautiful countries on the planet, it seems only right to explore it whenever we get the chance.

We spend enough time on buses on trains in our towns and cities during the working week so the chance to go for a long spin to some of the country's prettiest places is a great way to spend a couple of days off. 

We've got you covered with our selection of spectacular Irish locations you can only get to by car. Happy driving!

1. Glendalough

With scenery that would be the envy of many places around the world, a trip to the depths of Co. Wicklow is one of the best drives in the country. 

2. Lahinch

A surfer's paradise, grab your board or rent one when you get there.

3. Dingle

A jewel in the spectacular crown that is the Kingdom of Kerry, there's a lot more to Dingle than Fungi the dolphin. 

4. Roundstone

Located near the Twelve Bens mountain range, the views from this colourful Connemara town is like something from another world. 

5. Malin Head

Official the most northern point on the island. Stare into choppy North Atlantic Ocean or turn around and let the beauty of the entire island of Ireland fill your lungs!

6. Kinsale

A south-west paradise, you won't want to leave this gorgeous coastal village with some of the most scenic walks in the country. Great for a long weekend with pals.
