Roughly 40km southwest of Dublin lies Naas, the quaint county town of County Kildare. As the second-largest town in the region, it has become a popular destination for visitors from Ireland and abroad, particularly those who want to see the country life of Ireland, not just the bustling hubs of its largest cities. Fortunately, the Europcar offerings are extensive and range in size, style, and price. Whether you’re planning on passing through Naas for a day or two, or perhaps planning a longer visit to County Kildare, hiring a car will make your journey all the more memorable.
While the town is rather small and easy to see on foot, the experience of Naas and County Kildare wouldn’t be complete without traversing the winding roads and discovering the hidden gems of the Irish moors. Palmerstown House Estate and the Curragh are two of the must-see spots in the area, but trying to customise your journey with bus routes and timetables takes all the fun out of traveling. With your own hired car from Naas, you can enjoy the sights at your convenience, in complete control of when and where you choose to spend your time. Public transportation is limited in Naas – a fact that should definitely be considered when planning your transportation for the trip.
If you do choose to rent a car through Europcar in Naas, you will have the option of short-, medium-, or long-term rentals, depending on how you plan to spend your trip. Van Rental Naas is available through Europcar Van Rental services. Naas is conveniently located only a short distance from the E20, a major east-west artery of Ireland, as well as a range of minor roads that lead to nature reserves, spectacular bridges, and other small towns and highlights of the region. There is plenty to see and do in the town itself, but you don’t want to limit your journey like that. Many travellers choose to spend a few extra days down in Naas, as it has the lively spirit and culture of Dublin without the huge number of tourists, giving it a more authentic feel that visitors and residents both appreciate.
When you arrive in Naas, whether by bus, train, or a transfer from one of the airports in the region, the Europcar location will be easy to find, convenient, and affordable, with a wide range of automotive choices, including full-size vehicles for groups and larger families. Our easy pick-up and drop-off services, as well as insurance options and industry-leading customer service standards help us guarantee you a smooth ride. Regardless of what your “dream trip” to Naas may entail, hiring a car from Europcar is the best choice to ensure a memorable and comfortable journey.

When you first lay eyes on the Curragh, it will seem like a massive empty plain, and to a certain degree, it is. This 5,000-acre flat plain is considered common land and has been steeped in mystery for the better part of 1,500 years. From ancient Irish mythology to modern-day horseracing and scientific study, this massive area of land holds many hidden secrets. During your visit to the Curragh, be sure to stop in and see the famous Japanese gardens or peek into Pollardstown Fen, the largest fen in the country!
Whether you’re in the mood for the ultimate walking holiday or simply want to get away from the bustle of towns and cities for a day, taking your hired car southwest to the Curragh is never a bad choice.
Although international motor racing isn’t a huge sport in Ireland, it is growing in popularity and if you find yourself in Naas, you should definitely take the opportunity to visit the country’s only international motorsport venue. From a wide range of GT and rallycross events to the Championship Series and motorcycle races, this venue is a rare access point to an exciting and global sport that has tens of millions of fans.
Mondello also offers something quite unique, in that it occasionally allows open days when any visitor with a road-ready vehicle can try out the tracks and get a feel for the races on the course. If you’re feeling the need for speed to counter the slow, gentle pace of the Irish countryside, spend a day at Mondello that you’ll never forget!
