Dublin City is a vibrant place, full of energy and famous for its history, architecture and the many varied experiences on offer. Although the city of Dublin has changed over the last decade, it still retains an old world feel with grand historical Georgian buildings, roads at odd angles and more than enough tourist attractions to keep even the most active tourist busy. The Europcar rental location in Dublin City Centre offers a fantastic rental facility for any customer looking to hire a car or van in Dublin City Centre.
Located off Pearse Street, the Europcar location on Mark Street is within a 5 minute walk from Trinity College Dublin. The location caters for leisure customers, corporate customers availing of the flexible short, medium and long term business fleet management service offered by Europcar and customers renting a van.
Dublin’s history spans more than 1,000 years, starting with a Viking settlement, including 800 years of English rule followed by the fight for independence during the 19th and 20th Centuries. As such, there are no shortages of historic attractions to visit, but perhaps top of this list should be a visit to Kilmainham Gaol, Europe’s largest unoccupied prison. Apart from being an impressive attraction in its own right, the prison was central to some of the most heroic and tragic events of Ireland’s emergence as an independent nation.

Alternatively, to the north of Dublin City lies Newgrange, a World Heritage Site. Newgrange is a passage tomb built more than 5,200 years ago. Located just north of the picturesque River Boyne, the tomb is a large circular mound with a stone passageway. Even more incredible is the fact that at dawn on the Winter Solstice, an opening above the entrance allows a shaft of sunlight light up the entire passageway, marking the start of the New Year to the Neolithic people.
