Rental Car/Hire in Tralee?

Hi, are there rental car/hire agencies in Tralee? I was thinking about driving from Tralee to Galway instead of taking the bus. It seems like a shorter trip driving. Does anyone know if there are rental agencies in Tralee that would allow me to drop the car off in Galway? Thanks.

The only car hire company in Tralee is Enterprise but you have to drop the car back to them afterwards.

Your other option would be to take the short public bus ride to Kerry Airport and hire a car from one of the larger companies that operate there.

The above site will help with journeys on the public buses. For car hire at the airport, just google 'Kerry Airport': they have a full page with contact details for the carhire firms.

Good luck!

Ok thanks. Well, I was trying to avoid the bus trip from Tralee to Galway but going to Kerry to rent a car and then driving might take a similar amount of time. I guess I'll stick to the bus...

The bus from Tralee to the small local airport should only take about 20 minutes.

You can also cut out a bit of the journey to Galway by using the Tarbert car ferry which cuts out Limerick.
