Summer escapes from Shannon Airport
We spoke last month about all the reasons why you should fly from Shannon Airport, and we were really taken aback by the overwhelming response we received from our readers. We even got a nod from Shannon Airport itself! It left us in absolutely no doubt – this airport has a special place in many Irish hearts.
You’ll be pleased to hear that we’ve come across yet another reason to fly from Shannon: their online parking option, Park4Less, comes in at as little as €30 a week and is really handy for picking up your car as soon as you get off your flight home. So, whether you’re based in Limerick or around, it’s never been easier to get your annual dose of sunshine from Falcon.
If we’ve not managed to whet your appetite yet, then here’s some of the fantastic Falcon destinations that you can reach from Shannon Airport:
This little island in the Balearics is an absolute gem and you can fly to Majorca with Falcon every Saturday.
Home to the famous Mallorca rocks, this is the perfect holiday destination for those who want to let their hair down. Head to the island’s party capital of Magaluf to get into the thick of the action.

Home to the Timanfaya National Park, this is where you’ll find the Montañas del Fuego, or the Mountains of Fire, a hive pulsing with volcanic activity. Admire the stunning scenery forged by thousands of years of volcanic explosions, and don’t forget to stop end enjoy some lunch, cooked only from the heat radiating from the lava underneath a hole in the ground!
You can also reach mainland Spain from Shannon, with Falcon flights running every Friday.
In Costa Dorada you will find the fantastic PortAventura theme park, which is a great place to take the family for a day out.
