We loved our Sixt rental car: a Toyota Yaris. Two of us fit very comfortably, with a huge amount of baggage—our usual modus operandi. The car handled well and was the right size for Irish roads, which are very narrow. The rental price was quite fair, and the gas mileage was amazing—we traveled all over western Ireland for a week on 33 euros of gas! Car pickup was easy and friendly. Car drop-off was difficult: we followed signs to rental car return, but that was the wrong place, per a staff member there. Finding the real return area was super-difficult: you had to go through short-term parking and get a ticket for a free 15 minutes, then find the Sixt lot from there. No signage whatsoever. A Sixt employee who happened to be at another incorrect spot jumped in our car and navigated to the right spot, and we almost missed our plane! But all's well that ends well, and drop-off became one of those memorable travel adventures!

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!

Our Sixt representative, Rob, was a great source of information. He got us signed in and on our way quickly. When we later decided that we really did need the ability to cross into Northern Ireland, we were able to quickly make the adjustment via email. It all worked!
