Is it worthwhile renting a car while visiting Shannon?

Shannon isn’t particularly walkable, so it can be quite hard to get around town by foot or via public transport. This is why car rentals 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.

What different driving laws should I keep in mind when driving in Shannon?

Before hitting the road with your car rentals in Shannon, it is important to familiarize 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.

What kind of driver’s license do you need to rent a car in Shannon?

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 driver’s license with a photo ID. This, along with a credit card, will be enough for all residents of the US, EU and Canada.
