x2. Except, be careful everywhere, not just the east coast. Narrow roads are everywhere in Ireland, as are blind corners. We rented a diesel Kia Sportage and I was happy to have the AWD when we were forced to drop 2 of our wheels off the pavement to avoid oncoming traffic time after time.

Regarding hotels, just make sure you aren't the room directly above a pub/restaurant and get a room that does not face any main roads (especially in the city).
