Airport Shopping

In 1947 the world's 1st Duty Free Shop was established at Shannon Airport in a small kiosk operated by one woman, Ms Kitty Downes.   This initiative, which grew from Shannon's designation as a customs-free airport, proved to be highly successful and became a blueprint for Duty Free marketing the world over.

Shannon Duty Free

For departing passengers, Shannon Duty Free provides an extensive selection of cigarettes, liquor, food, luxury goods, confectionary and essential travel accessories. All of this combined with world class customer service and unbeatable prices.

Opening hours: 24 hours a day
