Where can I collect/drop off the car at Shannon Airport?
This depends on the company you have booked with. Some hirers are based at the airport itself while others are off airport. If yours is further away, you will need to take a shuttle bus to collect your car.

In Ireland the law states that children under 150cm in height and less than 36kg (about the age of 11/12) must be in the appropriate child seat or booster. If you are taking children, be sure before you go as to whether you will need a child seat or not.
