Important information about Shannon car hire

If you’re planning on taking a trip to Shannon in the near future, you should probably consider getting hired cars in Shannon. They provide an excellent way to go and see the best that this small but historic town has to offer. With your car rental, you can easily take trips to some of the most iconic attractions, not only in county Clare but in all of Ireland. Places like Bunratty Castle & Folk Park and Dromoland, as well as the Cliffs of Moher, can very easily be reached via road, which is why a rental car is a must. Furthermore, there are about ten rental car locations all over town, so getting a cheap rental car in Shannon shouldn’t be a difficult task. As for parking conditions, there aren’t as many street parking spaces in Shannon, but there is a good number of parking lots and garages, so finding a place to leave your rental car shouldn’t be difficult.

Shannon isn’t particularly walkable, so it can be quite hard to get around town by foot or via public transport. This is why hired cars in Shannon are an absolute need. With your rental car, you can easily move around town as you navigate the N19 and R471, which are some of the major freeways connecting different parts of Shannon. You can also easily travel to some of the neighbouring cities, such as Limerick, where you’ll find King John’s Castle and The Hunt Museum. This is only about half an hour’s drive from Shannon. Traffic is never a concern in this town unless there are difficult weather conditions, and you can pretty much get to anywhere around the city with your rental car. Also, you can get any type of rental cars in Shannon, including electric car rentals, people carrier rentals and even economy hired cars in Shannon.

Before hitting the road with your hired cars in Shannon, it is important to familiarise yourself with some of the unique traffic laws that apply to the Republic of Ireland as you would not want your trip in Shannon to be ruined by a traffic violation. The first thing you need to know is that they drive on the left side of the road, which may be difficult for most people used to driving on the right. For that reason, you need to always be careful, especially when making a turn at an intersection, as it can be puzzling. Other than that, you can always check with the Department of Transportation in Ireland for the latest rule changes.

Before you can be allowed to get Shannon rental cars, you may be required to provide a few documents. The first thing you’ll need is a valid driving license with a photo ID. This, along with a credit card, will be enough for all residents of the US, EU and Canada. If you come from countries outside these territories, then an international driving license will be required alongside the license issued from your home country.
