FACT FILE — IRELAND

Speed Limits/Distances

Over the past few years all new city, village and town signs in the Republic have had their distance stated in kms (kilometres) instead of miles. From 20th January 2005 the speed limits have also been changed to kms and instead of a typical town speed being 30 mph it is now 50 kmh.

All new cars will have their speedometer s only in kilometres. You will have to remember that if you rent a car in the Republic and take it across the border that the speedometer will not show the speed in mph if it is a 2005 model. Distances and speed limits remain in mph in Northern Ireland.
