I had a great experience at Sixt in Shannon airport. The car was ready, it was just perfect, the agent Rob was gracious and helpful, and so considerate of my need for a coffee before signing out the car and heading out into the dark, rainy Irish morning (driving on the left hand side of course) after a transatlantic flight! Will for sure go with Sixt again for my next rental. Thank you!

I rarely do reviews but with this car hire experience I just have to. Everything from booking the car on line, picking and dropping the car back was just exceptional and all done by kind staff at Shannon. I will only use this company from now onwards

Sixt Car Rental is right in arrivals terminal and car in lot nearby. This was very convenient. Paid more for an automatic but worth it. Staff was very friendly and informative. Car performed great and was good on gas. Highly recommend!
