Cheap Car Hire Shannon Airport, Ireland
Shannon Airport is located 24km from Limerick and Ennis, and 90km from Galway.
The Shannon region of Ireland encompasses Clare, Limerick, South Offaly and North Tipperary.
The Shannon region is well worth a visit and a rental car makes touring round the area more convenient for you. There are some wonderful sites in The Burren area of north Co. Clare. Instead of green pasture or bog land, this area boasts huge pavements of limestone making it a unique place in Ireland. In fact, the word 'burren' is derived from Gaelic meaning 'stoney place'. A lot of underground drainage occurs here, resulting in caves being formed. One of the best examples of these caves is the Ailwee cave, near Ballyvaughan that was formed by the melt waters of a prehistoric ice age. Also in The Burren area are the spectacular Cliffs of Moher. The cliffs are 8km long and 214m high providing views of the Aran Islands, Galway Bay, the Twelve Pins and the Maum Turk mountains.

Limerick City stands on the River Shannon and was once a Viking city. It is now Ireland's third largest city and the castles, ancient walls and museums are testament to its dramatic past. A popular attraction is King John's Castle, which is over 800 years old and is located in the heart of the heritage district of Limerick on King's Island.
South Offaly offers just as much as the other areas in this region, including the beautiful heritage town of Birr, home to the Birr Castle Demesne and Historic Science Centre. The Internationally renowned monastic site of Clonmacnoise can also be visited whilst here.
