Saint Patrick’s Day is coming and a lot of people want to go to Dublin to have some fun “green” days there. In this post, we want to show you the cheapest way to go to Dublin and enjoy this wonderful capital city.
There are several ways to travel to Ireland. The first way is to rent a car but it’s not a good idea if it’s going to be the first time that you will drive on the left side. Here you have some tips if you want to drive on the left side but the most important is:  “Think left”. This is so important that there are some car companies put a sticker on the dashboard that says, “Left alive. Dead right.”
