This is an unofficial guide to Shannon Airport

Family Facilities

Travelling with young ones in tow can be challenging, and this can hold especially true in an airport. Luckily, Shannon Airport has kid-friendly facilities on offer, including entertainment options and conveniences for parents.


Once checking their bags, passing through security and having a bite to eat, most people are ready to take a seat and let things slow down for a minute. But families with young children know it doesn’t always work this way. That is why Shannon Airport has a children’s play area on the first floor in the Departures Lounge. This is a well-lit partitioned off area with plenty of toys on site. It’s located next to gate 7.


Parents of babies will want to note that all of the baby changing facilities are situated landside. Once you have passed through security, you will no longer have access to such facilities. One station is on the far side wall of the arrivals area, next to the exit to Coach Park 1. The other is in the very centre, attached to the toilet between the Londis Shop and WHSmith bookstore.
