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.
