Campervan Rental Dublin

Dublin is an old Viking village that later is beloved as a great cultural hub for music (U2, the Script), literature (Oscar Wilde, James Joyce) and beer. The name originates from the Celtic word “dubh Linn”, meaning black pool, referring to the dirty pool in Dublin castle. The city is split in two by the River Liffey, with the main streets being O’Connell Street in the north and Grafton Street on the southside.

Getting to Dublin

Dublin city is on the east side of Ireland along the Irish Sea, 100 km west of Holyhead in Wales. Dublin airport is 7 km north of the city, operating as the country’s main international hub, with the main local airlines being Aer Lingus and Ryanair. Dublin Port connects the city with the ferry to the Isle of Man, Holyhead and Liverpool, with the last two operating as road connections to continental Europe through the English Channel. The freeway M50 circles the city and connects to most of the island’s main roads. North on M1 to Belfast in Northern Ireland, northwest to Donegal through M3, the M6 to Galway, and south on M7 and M8 to Limerick and Cork respectively. The Luas (tram) and the Dart (commuter train) are the main means of public transport, together with busses.

Parking in Dublin

Most parking in Dublin is “pay and display” roadside parking, where pay through a parameter (usually €2-4/h). A rule-of-thumb is always parking in visible and busy spaces. St. Mark’s Church on Pearse Street offers half-day prices at around €8 (pre-booking available). Q-Park Dawson Street has good offers on daily and nightly rates. In car parks, pay extra attention when parking a RV rental to the height, as some RVs might be higher than the standard height restrictions allow. Outside the city, you can park at Clontarf Road and hop on a train to Connolly Station or park at the Luas car park at Red Cow stop.

The best time to rent a RV in Dublin

Weather graph for average temperatures in Dublin
Average temperatures in Dublin per month

Dublin’s weather is cold, humid and wet due to its location in the Atlantic. Weather conditions come and go rapidly, and it is not uncommon for a sunny day to have several spills of rain. A local tip is to always carry a raincoat in your backpack at all times, as umbrellas rarely last in the high winds. 

In winter, temperatures are not extreme (usually 2-10 °C), but high humidity and winds create a strong sensation of cold. During summer, days can be as long as 17h, however rarely go above 15-20 °C. The warmest months are June and July, while the wettest period is between October and December. The rough weather does create great conditions for water sport, with ideal kite/windsurfing spots in Bull island and Poolbeg, minutes outside Dublin city center.

Dublin's biggest annual event is St. Patrick's Day, 17th March. The official Irish public holiday brings tourists from near and far, to enjoy Guinness and great craic in the streets of Dublin. St. Patrick's weekend, together with the summer months (June-August), is the busiest and most expensive period to travel to Dublin. April and May might be the best months to rent a RV in Dublin as the green city is flourishing, the weather is more dry and warm, while prices are relatively low.
