Airports in Shannon
Shannon is served by the second largest airport in Ireland, Shannon Airport (SNN).
Shannon Airport was the first airport outside of the Americas to offer full US preclearance facilities. Travellers flying to the USA from Shannon can go through immigration, customs and agriculture inspections before boarding their flight, making their arrival stateside a lot easier.
There’s a great range of facilities for people passing through Shannon Airport, including free public Wi-Fi and a gastropub which is open 24 hours a day. The bar is named after a chef, Joe Sheridan, who once worked at Shannon Airport and invented the Irish Coffee. The drink is still made to his traditional recipe, so it would be rude not to try one.
There are also two VIP lounges for travellers flying Premier, Executive or Business class with Aer Lingus, US Airways, United Airlines, and Delta Airlines. Priority Pass and Airport Angel card holders can also access the lounges free of charge. Other passengers can use the lounge for up to three hours at a flat rate of €25.00.
