If you have pre-booked your hire car through e Car Rental Ireland, then you can simply present your paperwork to the attendant at the kiosk next to baggage carousels 1 and 2. If, on the other hand, this is a last-minute arrangement, continue on to the booth near the exit of the Arrivals Hall to set your rental in motion.
General Information about Shannon Airport
Shannon Airport has a storied history. Back when transatlantic flight was a new and novel idea, Shannon served as a crucial refuelling hub. Today, the bulk of the flights from North America continue on to Dublin, though Shannon still operates a few key connections to destinations across the Atlantic.
The airport has another claim to fame as well. During its heyday in the 1940s, Joe Sheridan served as terminal chef. He has been credited with pouring the world’s first Irish coffee—now an international favourite. If you’d like to sample this Irish icon at its origin, stop by the Sheridan Food Pub while passing through Shannon Airport.
Don’t let all of this nostalgia give you the wrong idea about Shannon Airport. An upgrade at the turn of the millennium ensured that Shannon’s facilities are modern and thorough. The terminal serves more than 1.75 million passengers each year and even offers pre-clearance for US-bound passengers. In other words, you can fly out of Shannon and land in the US with domestic-passenger status. That’s a substantial convenience.
