Short term car lease?
I'm expecting to be in Ireland for about 3 months and I do want the flexibility of being able to drive around, even if I am located in a city or town. Does anyone know of a dealership or company that does a short-term car lease? I looked at Enterprise Rent-A-Car and they wanted over €700 per month. I was hoping to find something cheaper.
Unfortunately, the places I'm looking at living don't have a Go-Car service nearby.
I personally can't give you a recommendation as I've never leased a car for that long. Based on normal rental costs, the number you said above seems ok to me, but I know it's a lot of money. Does that include insurance? I'm guessing if it does, it's basic, and not full coverage. Insurance in Ireland on rentals is not cheap!
I hear good things about dan dooley rental. No affiliation, just positive reviews etc. They do have a long term rental inquiry form if you're interested.
Maybe renting on an as-needed basis might be a better option, e.g. if you're looking to get out sightseeing for a weekend here and there. Depending on where you are, public transport might suit most your needs.

Thanks for the response.
Dooley Car Rental was the one that referred me to Enterprise. Unfortunately, I don't know if the rental came with insurance, the quote didn't say and I appear to have deleted it.
I'm not quite sure where I'm going to be yet. I hope there will be a short-term rental option available nearby. We'll see.
