Those here on pilgrimage to Knock Shrine may be tempted by Croagh Patrick - a holy mountain which has close connections to Saint Patrick. Hiring a car from Knock Airport also transports you to the lovely bays, beaches and seaside towns of the West Coast.
Ireland West Airport serves a fairly wide expanse of County Mayo, so many visitors will be hiring a car from Knock Airport. Knock Shrine is the biggest visitor attraction here, and one of the most popular pilgrimages in Europe.
The west of Ireland is a driver's paradise, so those who rent a car from Knock Airport and head for destinations like Achill Island won't be disappointed. The Atlantic Drive is one of the best European driving routes going. Croagh Patrick, near Westport, is a relatively short drive west of the airport, and the seafront scenery at the likes of Keem Bay has tourists returning year after year.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
