IRELAND RV RENTAL SPECIALS: If you place your McRent Ireland motorhome rental booking request with IdeaMerge online, our software will apply any relevant specials from the RV hire vendor as well as our own IdeaMerge QUANTUM online discount.
Book early to secure availability. Many clients book their Ireland RV hire months in advance. Moreover, said discount tends to be higher the earlier a motorhome rental booking is made.
Economically travel mystical Ireland with the freedom and comfort of an RV rental — a veritable vacation home on wheels. Our Ireland RV rental delivery and return can be made in Dublin and at Shannon, Kerry or Cork airports.
Ireland has so much to offer, and a motorhome rental opens it all to you. Unpack just once and go, go, go. To the Boyne Valley, New Grange, the Giant's Causeway, lovely Galway, seaside Doolin and her traditional Irish music session pubs, to the Cliffs of Moher, the Aran Isles, the Dingle Peninsula, to the Ring of Kerry and her marvelous mountain lakes, to Blarney Castle, indeed to medieval and ancient castles and neolithic monuments galore, to cosmopolitan Cork, and of course to good ol' Dublin.
Belfast, in Northern Ireland, is a rejuvenated city; after many troubled decades it is now thriving with a strong dining and nightlife scene. In addition to the Giant's Causeway, Lough Neagh is a highlight of the north: the biggest lake in the British Isles offers much in the way of scenery and recreation. Passing into Northern Ireland, the currency switches from euros (EUR) to British pounds (GBP) and the road signs switch from kilometers to miles, but the beauty and verdant landscapes remain the same.
An Ireland RV rental is such a great way to experience all the wonders of "The Emerald Isle".
Famous RV travel itineraries in Ireland include the 2600-kilometer (1600-mile) Wild Atlantic Way, the stunning Causeway Coastal Route, the Ring of Kerry, the Skellig Ring, the Midlands Historic Houses and Castles Tour, and a journey through 5000 years of history in Ireland's Ancient East.
Ireland has a great road network so traveling by RV between cities like Limerick, Galway, Cork, Dublin and Belfast is easy and efficient. Traffic is minimal. Driving is on the left.
Much of the great charm of Ireland resides along country lanes and in the small towns where you can share a pint with the locals in the pub. Once off the main highways in your RV, you will likely find the roads quite narrow. Some are only one lane, so you will need to be cooperative when you meet another vehicle. No problem. In rural areas, fill your fuel tank when you have the chance as fuel stations can be far apart and are not likely to be open 24/7. Plan to make haste slowly. Between low speed limits and narrow country lanes, you are not going to get anywhere in Ireland in a hurry. But that's the whole point when traveling Ireland by RV!
Land of stunning scenery and ultra green hills. Land of myth and legend and enchantment. Land of writers, of poets, of musicians. Land of Gaelic language. At the very edge of Europe, Ireland is home and host to mystery and magic in every valley and field, every pub and person, every historical site and, yes, every RV campsite.
Motorhome camping parks abound all round Ireland. See the Irish Caravan and Camping Council website and ASCI's Campsite Ireland website.
Note April, May and September are great months to travel Ireland, as rainfall is typically lowest during those months.
And don't sell wintertime short: crisp mornings, dewy glens and the sun low in the sky are the perfect prelude to a cozy evening in a pub with friends and family, delectable Irish fare, Guinness, Harp, or Irish whiskey, and local characters and musicians.
Apart from our IdeaMerge QUANTUM online discount, the prices and policies presented on the IdeaMerge website match the prices and policies of our motorhome rental suppliers. You aren't paying extra by going through IdeaMerge — in fact you're paying less, thanks to our unilateral, QUANTUM discount.
IdeaMerge facilitates the whole RV rental booking process, presenting a single total cost you can count on — and acting for you as an accessible resource and, if necessary, as a mediator.

Many factors determine the cost of a motorhome or campervan rental in Ireland. The factors affecting the RV rental cost include RV size, rental rate seasonality (or whether the rates are so-called flex rates instead re-determined daily or weekly based on supply and demand), and the optional extras you select (many and varied).
For exact total costs, submit a Search above. Our online order software will then present to you all the RVs, whether motorhome, camper van or truck camper, ordered by total price.
If you then click on a RV thumbnail image or on the "More Info" text link adjacent to that image, the software will present the following info specific to the RV and dates:
Many optional items are available for hire with an RV rental, and these greatly affect the total cost. The optional items (e.g. camping table and chairs, bedding, shuttle transfer) are presented during our online order process, along with selectable pick-up and return times.
In many cases the RV rental company offers an inclusive package that bundles together a set of optional extras for one relatively low price. Again, don't worry about those packages. Just select à la carte the options you want and our software will apply an inclusive package if such is available and if such package indeed gives you a lower price than actually paying for the options à la carte.
Similarly, RV rental companies often offer specials that involve optional extras. Such specials can be complicated and hard for customers to understand. Again, our software is carefully programmed and maintained to automatically apply any specials that benefit you.
We think our software is unique in terms helping our customers optimize their RV rental and minimize their costs in these important respects. Our aim is to provide you with the best value and to increase our sales as a result.

We do NOT charge a booking fee. On the contrary, we discount our prices far below those of our suppliers.
Likewise but more uniquely still, we do NOT charge a credit card transaction fee. Most of our competitors charge a credit card transaction fee of about 2%! (They bury mention of that fee deep in their Terms and Conditions; search those terms for the word "surcharge" or the phrase "credit card" to see their surcharge acknowledged.)
Furthermore, we do indeed charge your card in the currency you choose above. Thus no unwelcome suprises will be consequent of the charge. The charge in that currency will post to your account in exactly the amount we quoted; and no foreign currency transaction fee from your credit card company can apply to the charge.
We use our guaranteed Super Saver Exchange Rates — meant to be the best retail exchange rates available out there — to arrive at that guaranteed amount (i.e. if your currency is indeed different than the supplier's currency).
To be sure, our Super Saver Exchange Rates are NOT the interbank (i.e. wholesale) exchange rates which the big banks give to each other and which are typically the rates presented by Google and financial websites — and commonly also by our competitors, to give misleadingly low quotes — but they ARE the best rates you as an individual consumer can take advantage of. This is to say, our exchange rates are meant to be considerably better for you than the rates which Visa or MasterCard and the banks use to translate foreign currencies into cardholder currencies.
Most uniquely we offer three payment options in relation to currency, one of which options you can select during our online order process:
Barabara Falk & Ladd BurmasterWe recently rented a camper from IdeaMerge and toured from Lyon to the Alps region where we did some spring skiing for 3 weeks then headed to the French Riviera for 10 days... we loved this mode of travel and found campsites easily in most places we went. My husband did all the driving and he was most impressed by the European drivers as opposed to the drivers in the USA. He found the camper fairly easy to operate even touring the mountains with the tight hairpin turns. Read More
Stefan & Nicole PriceWe wanted to thank IdeaMerge and Avis Car away for the most incredible experience traveling through France, Switzerland and Germany. The Class B+ motor home provided was exceptional (we wish comparable vehicles were available in North America). The service and support from IdeaMerge made the planning and reservation process effortless. Responses to our many questions were incredibly prompt and thorough. Read More
Bob FogelsonThis is a totally unsolicited note of pure praise for IdeaMerge from a retired local judge who admires competence and doesn't suffer fools graciously. If someone can please this cynical old coot, they probably can please anyone. My wife and I, in our 70's, recently returned from a ten week RV trip through Europe. Our RV rental was arranged through IdeaMerge, and picked up in Germany. Prior to this experience we had no prior dealings with or knowledge of IdeaMerge. Read More
It all adds up to savings and peace of mind.
