If you need to rent a car in Limerick Ireland, stay away at all costs from Irish Car Rentals located on Ennis Rd; in Limerick. I recently rented a car for two days there. They put 1200€ on my card without telling me and then asked for another credit card for the rental fee as they said they first card would not clear. Nowhere did it say they will put 1200€ on my card. The card was blocked and I was paralyzed for funds. It was a horrible experience and these people are really sneaky. It is unethical and really ruined the vacation. At that time, it was almost $2000 US for two days. They are arrogant to boot.To make matters worse, they insisted on the fuel costs up front which was never mentioned. This does not reflect the spirit of Ireland. Try Hertz or Avis but get it clear first about the card charges.This is not the first horror story I have heard on renting a car in Ireland.
