Shannon Airport’s main terminal building opened in 2000. This 21st-century makeover left the airport fully equipped to cater for modern passengers. Everything from wireless Internet to extensive shopping facilities is on offer.
Wireless Internet (Wi-Fi) broadcasts throughout the passenger terminal and can be accessed for free by anyone with a notebook computer or Wi-Fi enabled device. Those who do not have their own computer and wish to access the Internet can do so in the Arrivals Hall at the coin- and card-operated consoles in the WHSmith bookstore.
The terminal is also equipped with a post box, which can only be used to mail letters and postcards. It’s located in the Arrivals Hall next to the Londis shop. Larger parcels need to be posted before arriving at the airport. There is also a small prayer room in the terminal, which holds Mass on Sunday mornings at 8.45am.
Currency exchange services are offered by ICE in three locations. The branch in the check-in area is open from 05:00 to 20:00. The branch in the departures lounge is only open to departing passengers and operates from 05:00 to 16:00. Arriving passengers can make use of the bureau de change in the Customs Hall, which is open from 06:00 to 14:00. ATMs are scattered throughout the terminal and dispense euros.
Toilets are arrayed across Shannon Airport on both sides of security. There are two separate toilets before security. One is on the far outside wall of the arrivals side of the terminal. This is near the exit to Coach Park 1. The other is directly between the Londis Shop and WHSmith, directly in the centre of the main hall. Adjacent to both of these toilets is a baby changing station.
