We will have a rental car, is it better to keep it for the 3 nights we are in Dublin and park it or just return it and take a taxi to the airport?

So I guess the answer depends on how much is the parking and rental car rat for 3 extra days versus a taxi to the airport from central Dublin hotel.

You will be MUCH better off returning when you arrive in Dublin than paying for a car each day and its parking when you won't be using it. Dublin is very walkable and easy to get around via public transportation.

And you don't necessarily need to return it to the airport location, there are agencies that have rental offices in the city as well which may be more convenient to where you are staying.

unless prices have changed it's about €30 for the taxi ride and with the way rental car daily rates have gone up, plus parking cost, it would be much less costly.....

Astrid,

You just need to work out where you can 'dump' the car when you arrive in Dublin (as that may be in the airport itself) as you might have to get from the airport to your accommodation ..... and back again.

This might be dependent on where you are staying and which is the best/cheapest way to travel to/from the airport.

The next question for you to consider is .... depending on who your car hire is with, do they have a return facility in the city or do you have to leave it back at the airport?
