Enterprise Rent-A-Car announced the opening of its latest branch, this time in Dublin, Ireland.
Located at Stephen’s Green Shopping Centre in Dublin, the new branch will create new jobs for the region, including opportunities in Enterprise’s Graduate Management Trainee program.
Lord Mayor of Dublin Alison Gilliland officially opened the branch, which is one of several openings planned for the coming year. Enterprise will also open a new branch in Cavan, and Castlebar, Co. Mayo, along with the relocation of its Pottery Road site to Stillorgan, Dublin.
“I am delighted to officially open the latest Enterprise branch here in the heart of the city.” Gilliland said. “During my time as Lord Mayor and previously as a member of Dublin City Council, I have always placed an emphasis on the importance of investing in a sustainable and user-friendly transport system for our capital.”
“Alongside public transport, shared car services play a vital part in creating a transport framework that serves the people of Dublin as well as those who visit our fair city,” Gilliland continued.
In the last 12 months, the car rental company has grown its presence in Ireland by launching its Car Club service and expanding the commercial rental operation Flex-E-Rent. The Stephen’s Green branch will include two Car Club vehicles, which can be booked and accessed via an app anytime and rented by the hour or the day.
In 2021, Enterprise brought its flagship car-sharing service to Ireland with a fleet of more than 30 vehicles nationwide, including 16 on-street locations in Dublin. Plans are underway to further grow the fleet in both branches and rural and urban on-site locations across the country.
“This is an exciting time for Enterprise in Ireland as we continue to drive sustainable mobility services through our Rent-A-Car, Car Club and Flex-E-Rent divisions,” Enterprise Ireland Managing Director Brendan Grieve said.
“Key to what we do is making sure sustainable, efficient and reliable transport options are available to communities across Ireland, whether that’s arrivals into the country setting off to explore all that the island has to offer, or local businesses and residents who have short- or medium-term transport needs,” Grieve continued.
