Europcar Shannon Airport desk is located in the arrivals hall where our friendly staff will be waiting to get you behind the wheel of your hire car. Our onsite car depot has a wide range of cars to suit any need you might have and is just outside the terminal building so the turnaround is quick and easy. The airport has access to close by roadways that can bring you to Limerick City, Ennis in County Clare and Galway City. When you land in Shannon Airport you’ll also be very close to two of Ireland’s top geotourism attractions, the Cliffs of Moher and the Burren.
The Cliffs of Moher are Ireland’s most visited natural attraction seeing over a million annual visitors. These cliffs are some of the highest in all of Europe boasting amazing views of the Atlantic Ocean, Galway Bay and the offshore islands. The cliffs stretch for 8 kilometres and at their highest point rise to 214 metres above the crashing waves of the Atlantic below. There’s a dedicated visitor centre onsite where you can learn of the history and the eco systems of the cliffs. If you’re in this part of the country the Cliffs of Moher simply have to be on your list.
The Burren is a unique landscape consisting of exposed rock, otherwise known as a karst landscape. When you first lay eyes on the Burren it almost seems out of this world. In the many crevices and cracks in the rock you’ll find many of Ireland’s wildflowers and during the spring season, the Burren truly comes to life. There’s plenty to do in the Burren aside from exploring the rocky outcrop, you’ll find caving, rock climbing and hiking to avail of here as well as a Birds of Prey Centre which is highly entertaining.
