Shannon is a popular town in the Irish district of County Clare. As a fairly new town, the tourism and cultural aspects of the town are still growing, with the Irish government expected to invest heavily in the town in order for it to reach a similar level of prestige as Cork and Dublin.

However, the town does provide excellent shopping and dining opportunities, as well as many natural attractions in the form of lakes, rivers, castles and public parks.

The Irish climate results in mostly warm summers, with a distinctly cooler temperature throughout the rest of the year.

As Shannon is quite a secluded town, it is recommended to take out a rental car to explore various other Irish cities, such as Cork and Dublin.

Arriving Shannon Airport

Shannon Airport is based in the city of Shannon, and is one of Ireland’s premier airports, along with Cork and Dublin.

The airport has few restaurants and shopping outlets, so it is recommended that dining and shopping take place upon your arrival in Shannon Town Center.

All airport processes are dealt with rapidly and efficiently, and previous visitors have remarked how impressed they were with the airport’s ability to get you through the various systems and out into your holiday.

Driving In Shannon

Driving in Shannon is a thoroughly enjoyable experience. With long, open roads and a hilly landscape, Shannon offers scenic routes and easily navigable road layouts for visitors and first-time drivers to the country.

Road signage is clear and comprehensive, while the pace of living is somewhat slower in Shannon than in similar sized Irish cities.

Local drivers are friendly and helpful and the city’s public transport system is among the best in Ireland, though we recommend a rental car to see everything that Shannon has to offer.
