Top tips for renting a car in Shannon

  • A rental car is by far the best and most comfortable way to explore not only Shannon, but also other big destinations in western Ireland. Public transportation often doesn’t take you to some of the region’s best landscapes and tours can be pricey. Galway makes for a great road trip if you’re based in Shannon, as it’s about 55 miles from the city. The majestic Cliffs of Moher, also on the west coast, are about an hour’s drive from Shannon.
  • All the big car rental agencies, including Avis, Budget, and Hertz, can be found at Shannon Airport (SNN), which is less than four miles away from the city center. The car rental desks can be found at the Arrivals Hall of the airport’s main terminal, and the rental cars will be located just outside the building. An International Driving Permit (IDP) is not required when renting a vehicle in Ireland.
  • When driving in Ireland, remember that traffic drives on the left side, and the steering wheel is located on the right side of the car. Although regional roads are usually somewhat narrow, they are well-maintained -- as are the motorways. The roads around Shannon Airport are some of the best for people driving on the left-hand side of the road for the first time; just be extra alert when entering and exiting roundabouts.
  • Although traffic in Shannon itself is very manageable, there is some congestion around the airport, particularly during rush hour. Avoid driving between 6:30 a.m. and 9:30 a.m., and then again between 3:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. so you don’t add unnecessary extra time to your journeys. If you have to be at the airport within those time frames, plan your trip accordingly. If you’re heading to Galway, remember there are lots more people on the roads on the weekend.
