Where is Shannon Airport (SNN)?

Co. Clare, Ireland

Shannon Airport is the third-busiest airport in Ireland, and the main gateway into the beautiful area of County Clare. Many visitors pick up a hire car at the airport, so they can explore nearby towns and cities like Ennis and Limerick, as well as the picturesque Natural Heritage Areas of Doon Lough and Woodcock Hill Bog.

In 2014, over 1.6 million people passed through Shannon Airport — and year after year, we help travellers find and compare cheap car hire deals at the airport.

How do I find the best car hire deals at Shannon Airport?

We hope to bring you the best prices on a wide range of car groups. Using our simple search tool, you can compare deals from a number of well-known car hire companies at Shannon Airport, including Europcar, National and Thrifty.

Of course, price isn’t everything — you want to be sure you’re hiring from the company that offers the best value for money and customer satisfaction. To help you decide who to rent with, we ask each customer to rate their overall rental experience (from the efficiency of the counter staff to the condition of the car and the speed of pick-up and drop-off). You can see their feedback once you search for a car on our site.

Hidden charges are a common concern for people hiring a car, but they needn’t be if you book a car with a full-to-full fuel policy (there are plenty of cars with this policy at Shannon Airport). As long as you fill up the tank just before the end of your rental, you won’t pay any extra fuel fees when you drop the car off.

What choice of cars are there to hire at Shannon Airport?

You will find an extensive range of hire cars at Shannon Airport, from mini and economy vehicles (ideal for couples and single travellers without much luggage) to family-sized estates, luxury cars and 9-seater people carriers.

To simplify your search, use the filters to narrow down the results based on your needs and preferences. You can quickly see cars based on their size, supplier, rating, pick-up location, fuel policy and specifications (like air conditioning and automatic transmission).

How much does it cost to rent a car at Shannon Airport?

Over the past 2 weeks, our customers at Shannon Airport have paid:

Car Type Average Daily Price*

What tips are there for hiring a car at Shannon Airport?

  • 1
    The airport is around 14 miles (22km) from Ennis and 15 miles (24km) from Limerick. To get to the N18 (towards Limerick) and the M18 (towards Ennis), take the E20 (which you can join directly from the airport) through Shannon itself.

  • 3
    You will find vehicles with both manual and automatic transmission.
  • 4
    Book your car hire as far in advance as possible if you are keen to secure the car you want at a great price.
