Shannon is a very convenient town to fly to, as it has its own airport, Shannon Airport. If you stay within the town, the airport will be right on your doorstep, but even you choose to stay a little further afield it will still be within easy reach. The journey from the airport to your chosen accommodation could not be easier, and you will be enjoying the attractions, natural beauty and flavours of the Shannon region very soon after your flight touches down.
Shannon Airport is one of Ireland’s three major international airports, with daily domestic and international flights to numerous destinations, and provides every convenience a traveller might need: there are several ATMs and currency exchange desks, an executive lounge, a place of worship, a good selection of shops, including the world’s first duty free shop, and several bars and restaurants. The world’s oldest duty free shop dates back to 1947, and is open 24 hours a day, so you can pick up a bargain at any time, day or night.
Irish coffee was invented and named at Shannon Airport in 1943 by Joe Sheridan, a former chef at the airport. This famous drink, made to the original recipe, is still served at Shannon Airport, so why not relax and enjoy a little piece of history as you wait for your flight?
More than 10 passenger airlines fly from Shannon Airport, on domestic and international routes. There are regular domestic flights to London Heathrow, London Gatwick, London Stansted, Birmingham and Manchester Airports, and international flights to European destinations including France, Spain, Germany, Portugal, Lithuania and Poland, and to Boston in the USA.
The Shannon region has much to recommend it at any time of year, with historical attractions and natural beauty in abundance, but you may wish to time your visit to coincide with one of the annual events held here. From the Annual Aviation Show in August, to the Traditional Harvest Day at Bunratty Folk Park in September/October, to the many golf tournaments, there is always something going on.
The furthest part of Shannon is no more than two and a half miles from the airport. You can order an airport cab from a desk at the airport, which shouldn’t cost very much given the short distance you will likely be travelling, or you can catch a bus right outside the terminal building.
The area around Shannon boasts beautiful landscapes, from the dramatic Atlantic coastline to peaceful and unspoilt lakes, rivers and valleys. If you arrange a car rental with Expedia you can easily get to your hotel after your flight, and during your stay you will be able to fully explore this western part of Ireland, and everything that County Clare and County Limerick have to offer.
