Shannon Airport Mini Guide

So Tell me About Shannon Airport

The airport at Shannon is the most westerly located airport in the whole of Europe, last stop before America! Speaking of which, for those travelling to the United States, Shannon Airport offers a complete immigration pre-clearance service. It is the first non American airport in the world to do so, perfect for those on a tight schedule. Shannon Airport is a perfect starting point for exploring the beautiful island of Ireland.

How do I Get There?
When approaching 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 about a distance of 24 kilometres.  Buses and taxis are available from all nearby towns.

What if I’m a Last Minute Shopper?
Don’t worry! Apart from the expected designer perfumes and world famous Irish Whiskies the exquisite handmade chocolates and designer goods, you will find a little gem for those last minute gifts in the form of the Glen Aran Irish Markets providing a traditional range of knits perfect for Grandma, rugs to cosy up your home and jewellery to satisfy the most demanding of fashonistas. Left your paperback on the nightstand? Don’t panic, there’s plenty of choice available at WHSmith where you’ll find everything from the latest Hello magazine to a hardback copy of the History of Ireland - they even provide confectionery in case you like a Kit Kat with your Vogue.

Hunger Pangs?
Will not be a problem at Shannon Airport nor will a seemingly unquenchable thirst.  The usual mix of branded Italian coffees and gourmet sandwiches are available but as Shannon Airport is the actual birthplace of the traditional Irish coffee it would be a shame to leave without trying the original recipe at the Sheridan Food Pub.

They also serve a great selection of hot meals and tasty snacks to help you on your way.
