Shannon Airport

Hiring a car gives you the freedom and flexibility to explore the south west to its full extent, travelling on your own schedule and following your own compass. You’ll find our rental agents waiting for you at our Europcar desk in the arrivals hall, once you’ve gone through a few minor details they’ll escort you out to our onsite depot and you’ll be on the road in no time.

There’s so much to discover in this beautiful part of Ireland and having a car puts it all within your reach.

The car hire return depot is located in the same area where vehicles are picked up, just a couple-minutes' shuttle ride from the airport terminal. The turn-off from Airport Road (N19) is clearly marked, and Europcar associates are on site from 06:00 to 18:00 to handle your return.

Odds are, the return procedure will just take a few minutes, and then you'll be shown to the airport shuttle and delivered to the Departures Hall. The Europcar team recommend allotting 30 minutes for the entire operation, though it rarely takes even half this time. In any event, arriving at the terminal a few minutes early will help you avoid queues at the check-in desks and security checkpoints.

The drop-off point is manned during major hours of operation. If you need to return your Shannon Airport car rental before 06:00 or after 18:00, then you can simply park the vehicle in the short-term car park, which is located directly across from the terminal entrance. Deliver the keys to the keys to an associate at the Europcar counter in the Arrivals Hall, and you'll be on your way.


Shops & Restaurants

Restaurants and cafés have been strategically placed around the terminal to cater for passengers as well as for those who drop them off or pick them up. Perched on the first floor and overlooking the check-in area are the Estuary Café and Marsh Point Bar. These are most convenient for departing passengers, with one or the other open from 05:30 to 18:00. Farther in is The Segafredo, a fast-service restaurant that caters for transit passengers looking for sandwiches, coffee, baked goods and other items that can be picked up on the spot.

Presiding over the departures lounge and open 24 hours, the Sheridan Food Pub is named after Joe Sheridan, former chef at Shannon Airport and creator of the ‘Irish coffee' cocktail. Finally, the Atlantic Coffee Company greets passengers in the Arrivals Hall, near the desks offering car rental desks in Shannon Airport.

On the retail end of the spectrum, The Loop is the centrepiece of in-terminal shopping and offers the best selection of duty-free merchandise. A Londis Shop is stationed in the Arrivals Hall, where it sells reading material, travel accessories and snacks. There's a WHSmith bookstore in the same area, and another in the departures lounge, while Glen Aran Irish Markets occupies a corner on the first floor and deals mainly in handicrafts and folk art.
