Hello Ireland Motorheads!

We, my wife and I, are planning on traveling in Ireland prior to the doing the loop in Scotland and we want to rent a mini, preferably an F56 hatch, JCW, or at least an S. We are having some difficulties finding mini rentals. We plan on at least a week of travels. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

A couple of years back I hired an R56 MCS Convertible to do a lap of Scotland from the MINI dealer in Edinburgh. It was an absolutely fabulous 4 days.

Thanks, we have already booked a trip on the Loop in Scotland, an F56 mini S, but we are having issues finding an automotive rental dealer in Ireland that has minis!

You could always take the same car over on the ferry from Cairnryan. Its approx a 2 hour crossing.

Please post details if you find anywhere in Ireland that will guarantee a MINI.
There are 50 minis in this run and a good number of us are from the US. We all booked through the same tour leader. I don't know where they obtained all the minis for this run and we have planned to travel Ireland prior to the Scotland trip. I suppose we can reverse the trips. Also, since Brexit Great Britain is no longer a part of the EU I don't know how that will impact a GB car in an EU country! Gee whiz politics suck! We may have found a mini convertible that looks to be an R series S that may serve our needs. It really is becoming more trouble than it is worth. But thank you for the idea! I am not ready to give up yet. Maybe just tour Sweden and rent a Subaru WRX STI to tour! :eek:

Ian (118) has a really good friend in NI and also a MINI salesman and above all a MINI nut. He might help or know where to go!

Drop Ian (118) a message in case he doesn't see this post.
