× Passenger Update: Customers are advised when booking car hire and car parking at Shannon Airport to use licenced onsite operators. A number of offsite car hire and parking companies are purporting to operate at Shannon Airport but they operate offsite and have no agreement to collect or drop off passengers at the airport.  Booking with these companies may result in delays at the airport during pick up and drop off.

Travelling with Animals

We're making it easy to travel with your pet. 

Did you know Shannon Airport is now a designated Pet Entry Point?

Shannon Airport has been added to the list of existing approved Irish “Travellers’ Points of Entry” for the dogs, cat and ferrets.

Under the EU Pet Travel Regulation, EU Member States must designate specific “Travellers’ Points of Entry” – ports through which pet dogs, cats and ferrets originating in non-EU/EEA countries are permitted to enter the EU country.

Dogs, cats and ferrets are grouped together in the EU legislation because those three species are susceptible to rabies. Ireland has been free from rabies since 1903.
