Shannon is the newest town in County Clare and can be found a half hours drive west of the city of Limerick. Shannon has a lot to offer anyone visiting the town, from the famous River Shannon to Cliffs of Moher which are just under an hour's drive away if you chose to take advantage of car hire in Shannon. King John's castle in Limerick is also a popular attraction to visit and it is only a 2 minute drive away from Shannon. Re-opened in 213 this 13th century castle is a great day out and easy to get to.
By renting a car in Shannon you can take the 20 minute drive north to the city of Ennis. Here you can see the Clare Abbey which was founded in the 1100's, the Clare Museum which takes a look back into the history of the county of Clare and if you are travelling with children, you could go on the Lees Road Walk and Trails. If you do not want to travel as far as Ennis, in the city of Shannon you can find the Bunratty Castle which was a medieval fortress and is a short 10 minute drive away by car.

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.
