Airport Shopping

Shannon Duty Free

Established in 1947 the Duty Free shop at Shannon Airport is the first and oldest Duty Free shop in the World.   This pioneering initiative in Shannon spawned a world-wide industry with thousands of Duty Free shops around the world now generating billions of euro annually.

In 2014 we proudly relaunched the 'Shannon Duty Free' brand with 40s inspired entertainment, reminiscent of famous faces from the past who have travelled through Shannon Airport. 

Our shop now offers an incredible 60 brands including top names in Irish and European products such as Chanel, Gucci, YSL, Armani, Clarins, Lancome, Benefit and Marc Jacobs.  Other popular brands available at the airport are Jameson, Pernod, Knappogue Whiskey, Bunratty Meade and locally produced Irish smoked salmon.  All of this combined with world class customer service and unbeatable prices.
