Driving on the Left Side of the Road!

Updated: Jan 7, 2022

When you come visit us in Bunclody, you will most likely need to rent a car, or travel with your own vehicle.

⚠️🚦DON'T BE AFRAID!!! ⛔️ 🚧

If you have never driven on the left side of the road, and you fear to come to Ireland because of it,

This blog is for you!!!!!

Here is the list of questions you may ask yourself before coming to Ireland:

Do Irish people really drive on the left side of the road?

YES, they do! This is part of the Irish experience!

❓Do Irish people drive manual cars?

YES, they do! But you can also rent an automatic car, so no worries!

❓Is the steering wheel on the right side of the car?

YES, it is! You will need to get used to sitting on the right side of the car (I am still working on it!)

❓Are the pedals and the clutch reversed?

NO, they are not! They remain on the same side. You will “simply” be passing the speeds with your left hand, but your feet will not act differently!

❓Are roundabouts reversed as well?

YES, we are! You will have to turn clockwise. Just don’t forget to look on your right side before entering your roundabout!

Are you ready to drive, yet????

🚗 Trust me, YOU CAN DO IT!! 🚙

And if you still are still refusing to drive a car in Ireland, you can always take the bus 🚌, get a taxi 🚖, or ride a bike 🚴🏻‍♀️!
