Shannon Airport customer review

Review by (Ireland)

I have travelled through Shannon Airport on many occasions and find it to be really compact. Check in is quick I've never seen a large queue there. The security is also exceptionally quick and friendly. Once airside there isn't a huge amount to do. The bar staff are pleasant and friendly the duty free is large and well stocked. Overall passage through the airport is extremely quick and easy especially compared to the stress of travelling through Dublin.

Shannon Airport customer review

Review by (United Kingdom)

I flew from Manchester to JFK via Shannon airport. Our flight left Manchester on time and arrived 10 minutes early. We were informed upon arrival that our departure would be 2 hours late which we accepted. We went had a few drinks at the bar and then proceeded through US Pre-clearance. Very few facilities after pre-clearance. Eventually at 2.50 we boarded the lovely green Aer Lingus 757 and took off. This airport is a nice airport for transfers as there is few queues and nice staff.

Shannon Airport customer review

Review by (United States)

We flew out of Shannon mid-day on a Wednesday on Aer Lingus to Boston. We arrived at the airport very early (the check in desk was not even open) so we were the first on our flight to check in. It was very quick and smooth but I can't say what it was like an hour later. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. The US customs went very quickly and they were even training some new personnel. The airport doesn't have the amenities of large airports but it is so much easier to navigate. I will probably lean toward Shannon on my next trip to Ireland.

Shannon Airport customer review

Review by (United Kingdom)

Nice and quiet in winter anyway. Security appear totally bored and are the most abrasive unhelpful and rude I have ever come across. Searched through my bag and just scattered all of the contents every where leaving me to clear it all up. Bar staff and others back to normal Irish pleasantness. The building is undergoing improvements and should get better.

Shannon Airport customer review

Review by (Canada)

Recently departed Shannon after a holiday in Ireland. A pleasant enough airport that is easy to use and to get around. Check-in was quick and painless. Security was equally so. Maybe it was the time of day or perhaps it was not busy but the security process was the quickest we have ever encountered. There was an hour delay in departure (no fault of the airline or the airport) and my only complaint centres on staff's inability to control the passengers before boarding. This starts with a lounge area that is too small and staff not prepared to tell passengers to move back away from the desk and allow others access to boarding. The airport is not particularly busy so there is no excuse to have used such a small lounge. Apart from that all was fine.

Review by (United Kingdom)

Excellent little airport. I fly in from Uk and tend to use it for flights to USA (it is so convenient from Gatwick). It has a friendly but very thorough US Immigration and Customs check in 2.5 hours before take-off including full-preclearance. Very nice Irish immigration control officers. Bags arrive quickly. It has a smoking area airside! Security is very fast. Facilities - it's a not a busy airport so you never wait long but facilities are still good - Duty Free Shop is huge.

Had a very tight connection in Shannon from LGW and out to EDI. Very smooth and rapid arrival small walk from aircraft. The airport does look a bit miserable on arrival the American glory days are over. However immigration are quick and smiling. There is a good Observational Deck for enthusiasts though little to watch. Departures is modern and clean. Security was my fastest in any airport I have visited. Stay in the main area as long as you can before going of to Ryanair gates as they make you queue in a horrible dingy oblong waiting room with few seats. Overall really impressed with this airport for this visit.

SNN-CDG with Cityjet recently. There is a huge improvement in security check and new airside catering facilities. Also the bar is now open before proceeding through security check. This airport is a delight to travel through compared to Dublin.

Landside is bright and breezy - airside a delightfully nostalgic wood paneling carpeted feel. Catering is ample as is parking shopping and the linear configuration of the terminal building makes it a delight to watch planes come and go while waiting. In fact the only thing problematic about Shannon is the lask of decent full service airlines on Western European routes - these days its all Ryanair and Easyjet - Wizz and fizz. It has the oldest dutyfree area in the world - What innovation.

Drab looking especially airside. Seating dirty & worn. Very little to occupy you once airside. The whole place needs redecoration. Could do with more competition for refreshments. Shannon score with free WFI internet access and an inside viewing area albeit not much to look at outside (not a busy place for aircraft movements) plus this is a roomy airport.
