SIXT car hire in Dublin

Dublin is a capital city packed with culture and surrounded by green rolling hills. We at SIXT would like to help you explore with the help of the vehicle most suited to your needs. We have a vast fleet of new, up to date vehicles of varying sizes and classes that answer any budget. If you are staying in town, an economy compact car might be the ideal choice, but if you want to venture out of Dublin with the family you could choose a premium MPV. Our well-situated pick-up and drop-off points mean you have options as to where to start and finish your trip. You could collect your car from Dublin Airport, for instance, and return it to Dublin St Stephen’s Green in the centre of the city. 


Sixt Car Hire Dublin

Dublin car hire from SIXT includes long-term hire as well as weekly or weekend hire options. If you are staying for a longer period in Dublin, we offer long-term hire options so you can travel extensively within the city and travel further afield. The short-term options are made for those weekend breaks or short getaways. We have a range of vehicle categories including compact vehicles, MVPs and vans and the bookable extras include child seats, an additional driver and sat navs. With our extensive experience, our customer service team will be able to support your mobility needs.

What to do while in Dublin 

Having picked up your Dublin car hire, take time to explore some of the city attractions such as St Patrick’s Cathedral and Christ Church before heading outside to take in the natural beauty around Dublin. We recommend a trip to the Wicklow Mountains National Park, just under an hour’s drive from Dublin, where you can go hill walking, taking in the striking scenery of lakes and hills.

I had a great experience with Sixt. The lady at the check in desk was friendly and helpful. Sean the shuttle driver made great conversation and even picked the conversation back up where we left off when I returned the car because he remembered me. I had rented a mini class but they upgraded me to a Renault Clio which was in beautiful shape.


I look forward to using Sixt on my next trip to Dublin.

Special shout-out Valter who is the Terminal Manager in Dublin. I had an issue with a car repair guy in Cork (subcontractor) but Valter's customer service was fantastic, he's the reason I am a returning customer to Sixt for my upcoming trip home to Cork in 3 weeks time!

Car prices are getting more expensive

But the staff service is good


I rented a car for a long weekend in March from the Dublin city centre branch of Sixt. I was given a practically new car (Renault Clio registered in 2021) that was a higher category than what I originally booked. I was given the car with a full tank (as expected) and spotless inside. As I chose to return the car on a Sunday after-hours, I was given the option to return it the next (Monday) morning before opening hours for free, if desired.


I initially reserved the car online with my debit card, however upon collection I had to use my credit card to pay the excess and fuel deposit, unless I paid the daily extra rate for a zero excess cover. This is a fairly standard procedure for renting a car, from my experience. The only downside from my experience is that the deposit remained blocked from my credit card for a few weeks after the booking, which was much later than the 10 working days I was told to expect. Despite this, I was impressed by the prompt and helpful customer service, whom answered my queries over email.


Overall, I had a great experience with Sixt and will definitely be returning to the company in the future. In fact, I have booked another car trip with Sixt for the next month.
