The 3* Great National South Court Hotel is located just a 22minute drive from Shannon Airport. The international airport operates direct flights with Aer Lingus, with routes such as New York, Boston, Toronto, Philadelphia. A huge advantage of travelling back to the US from Ireland is that you will pass through U.S. Preclearance facility. Shannon Airport is one of only a handful of airports outside North America that offers this facility. The benefit is that having cleared USCBP, passengers arriving in the US are treated as domestic arrivals, allowing them to avoid immigration queues, pick up their bags and go.
- Car Hire companies are situated on the grounds of the airport. Due to the high demand in rentals, pre-booking is essential.
- In Ireland, we drive on the left-hand side
- Operating speed limits are in kilometres
- Ireland has 3 pin plugs like the UK
- Please check roaming charges with your mobile phone provider before travelling to Ireland as this can add up to be quite costly.
