Information on Shannon Car Hire

Shannon Car Hire

Compare & Save on car hire in Shannon

Shannon is a town forming the heart of Ireland's beautiful Shannon region. It is a town in County Clare, and home to the second biggest airport in the country. Shannon was given town status only relatively recently, in January 1982, and is rather more of a satellite town to nearby Limerick and Ennis. A 'new town', constructed primarily around the airport, Shannon's population has grown slowly since its founding in the 1960s, with housing, amenities, and shopping improving, and with the area being well-served by hotels close to the airport too. It's an ideal affordable and accessible hub from which to explore County Clare and beyond.

Things to Do in Shannon

Within Shannon Town itself, you'll find plenty of local community-based activities and events. Community centres, sports facilities, drama groups, music groups and rugby and football all flourish here. But if it's major attractions you're looking for, then it's time to hop in your hire car and explore the nearby surround. Limerick is just 20 minutes drive away, which in turn connects you to Dublin and Cork swiftly by rail or motorway. Bunratty Castle and Folk Park is an ideal nearby resort for families travelling with small children, and Knappogue Castle will satisfy those with a taste for historic Ireland. Just 45 minutes away by car are the renowned Cliffs of Moher too, one of the biggest natural attractions in the country.

Drive Around Shannon

The town of Shannon is relatively well connected with the rest of Ireland due to its close proximity to the city of Limerick which is within 20 kilometers of Shannon. Recently, major upgrades along the N7 (Dublin - Limerick), the N18 (Galway - Limerick) and the N20 (Cork - Limerick) have improved the accessibility of Shannon immensely, and as it is home to Shannon Airport, you'll find plenty of car hire options, all bookable through GoCarHire.co.uk, at the arrivals hall here too.
