Why Shannon?

The Shannon region boasts a highly developed, uncongested infrastructure linking you globally via Shannon Airport and nationally via road networks to Limerick, Galway, Cork and Dublin. And there’s no shortage of natural beauty: the region is bounded to the east by Ireland’s longest river, the Shannon, and our second-biggest lake, Lough Derg, and to the west by golden beaches and the breathtaking Cliffs of Moher.
