last time i was in there (few months ago) it was a nice visit, no problems. However there is no avgas (see notams) nearest avgas in Birr or Galway (mid week only). landing fee is about €20 (memory). youll be with the tower from the zone boundary so very simple. good food in the main terminal. dont think they are into 'Handeling' rip off stuff yet. as i said a nice place to vsit. give ops a call before you go to get the latest.
enjoy the trip.

We had a great flight into Shannon today, not often we can say this but
A very very very friendly bunch of folks from ATC through handling, and security.
Not a bad word to be said, and no rip off charges, plus it's great landing on such a long runway as 06.

Highly recommend a visit if you can get in and out on the same tank of fuel, still no avgas unfortunately.

We flew to Shannon on Sunday from EINC.All were very hospitable on the ground, and helpful in the air at EINN.Routed us to Nenagh,couple of orbits over the city to give a departing ATR some room,we were mindful while obrbiting to keep clear of the prohibited area over Limerick city on a very hazy day.It was then on to Bunratty VRP where we were given the option of an immediate landing on RWY24 as opposed to doing the long downwind for RWY06.The wind was across the runway anyway, so we took RWY24,within a minute with speed back and full flap we dropped on to a neverending runway in beautiful sunshine.We were collected by ops from the parking area and brought to the terminal where we paid the 21 euro fee,an hour later we were brought back to the aircraft.Taxiway and runway lights were lit up for us as we left.......we were begining to feel very important!
