  • We had a great experience with Nova Car Hire. It was by chance that we found the website and it had by far the most competitive prices for car rentals. I will absolutely use the website again to book rentals in the future.

About Car Hire at Shannon Airport

Located about 26 km from Limerick and 22 km from Ennis, Shannon Airport is the third-busiest airport in Ireland, after Dublin and Cork. You can access Clare, Limerick, and Galway from the airport via the N18, Cork is reached via the N20, and Kerry is on the N21.

One of only two airports in Ireland with flights to and from the United States and Canada, Shannon withdraws flights serving Boston and New York (JFK) during the winter months, but Aer Lingus announced this July that it would operate these routes all-year round from 2014, using its smaller Boeing 757 aircraft. The Boston service will run on a daily basis from January 6, 2014, with the New York flights scheduled to run daily from late March 2014.
