Did you know?
Shannon Airport is very convenient. The pace here is leisurely, and that’s a bonus – especially for our American guests who will be driving stick-shift on the wrong side of the road. You are in rural Ireland almost immediately, unlike arriving in larger Irish cities like Dublin or in Cork.
Taxis usually cost about 11.5 € from and to the airport. See Currency Converter by OANDA
