About Car Hire at Knock International Airport

Situated 5.6km south-west of Charlestown, County Mayo, Ireland West Airport Knock was built in 1985 to accommodate pilgrims who wanted to visit the nearby Knock Shrine, which commemorates an apparition of the Virgin Mary. Located off the main Galway-Sligo road (N17), it is the west of Ireland's largest airport and serves such western counties as Mayo, Galway, and Sligo.

You will find the car rental desks in the Arrivals Hall on the left as you exit the baggage area. Refer to your Nova Car Hire quotation document for the opening hours of your specific car hire provider. A member of staff will direct you to your vehicle. Familiarise yourself with the vehicle's controls before driving off. Follow the signposts to access the main N17 route. The village of Knock and Knock Shrine are just 13 kilometres from the airport. Enjoy the drive through the delightful County Mayo countryside.
