An Irish Car Rentals welcome at
Ireland West Knock Airport

Low cost rentals at Knock Airport

Ireland West is best — and the Irish Rental Cars team is ready to greet you at Knock Airport and start your Irish road trip with a low-cost rental vehicle. After you land, you’ll find our desk at the arrival hall on the left as you exit the baggage area. Knock Airport is Ireland’s fourth busiest airport, just 6km from the village of Charlestown, and the perfect first point on a planned trip to County Mayo and the West of Ireland, as it’s just off the N17 between Galway and Sligo. You’ll be starting your western road trip in a car supplied by Europcar. We have a full range to suit your needs, from economy and compact cars, to people carriers, SUVs and vans. Vehicles in our fleet have an average age of only eight months, so you’ll start your trip in modern luxury, and with our Price Promise, you won’t find a better deal anywhere.

Gateway to the West

Co Mayo is near the midpoint of the Wild Atlantic Way, the world famous 1,600km stretch of coastline with over 3,500 attractions and activities along Ireland’s west coast. Just 45 minutes away from Knock Airport, Westport is one of Mayo’s most popular destinations, with a stunning location on Clew Bay, and the peak of Croagh Patrick visible from its Georgian streets dotted with vibrant trad pubs, modern restaurants, boutique stores and watersports centres. Westport is also a perfect base to explore the Great Western Greenway, a 42km cycling route that follows Clew Bay’s coastline, taking in mountain vistas, stone walled fields and trickling streams at a slower pace. Knock Airport is also a central hub for exploring many of the top destinations in the surrounding area. To the north, follow the Wild Atlantic Way through Sligo, Donegal, Derry and Fermanagh, while you can also enjoy a drive along the River Shannon, and Achill, Connemara and Galway city are all a short, scenic drive away.
