Shannon Airport Mini Guide

Used by one and three quarter million passengers per year, Shannon Airport is one of the main airports in Ireland. We offer Shannon Airport car rentals so that you can explore the west coast of Ireland and see other interesting cities such as Galway and Limerick. Although Ireland is one of the most green and beautiful countries on earth, this is because it is often raining so having a car is a clever way of staying dry. Many tourists use rental vehicles to take a tour and soak up the unique history and culture of Shannon.

To get to Shannon Airport from Limerick City you need to follow the N18 in a northerly direction. The same route applies (N18) if travelling from Galway but in a southerly direction. Coming from Dublin simply take the N7 and head west and from Kerry the N21 going north. The closest city to Shannon Airport is Limerick which is twenty-four kilometres away. You can prebook your hire car online for collection at the Airport or from any of our numerous locations throughout Ireland.
