Shannon Flights GuideShannon, Ireland, also known locally as Shannon Town, is a small town in County Clare, Ireland, on the river Shannon. Though basically unknown until the 1990s, a population expansion made Shannon more of a significant place, though it still retains its rather provincial charm. For example, most schools are privately run, and major supermarkets didn't exist in Shannon until the 1990s.
The Shannon Airport connects the small town to the rest of the country and the European continent. Though Dublin is merely a two hour drive, a nearby outpost is Galway. And for those going North, Darry is a pleasant two hour drive as well.
Shannon, like the rest of Ireland and even the British Isles, is known for mild yet chilly weather. Rainfall is high and steady throughout the year, even well into the summertime, which can be gloomy and even cold and damp. It is known for having an Oceanic climate. Shannon is more of a stopover on a longer journey than a destination in itself. Though the airport runs domestic and international flights year-round, the best time to fly is less dependent on the weather and more dependent on a time of year you can plan a longer escape and hop around the Irish and British isles.
