Question about tolls

We will be arriving from Shannon airport headed to Killarney. There is tolls along this road and unsure how to pay. I have read threads about having to pay at a pay station or with your car rental company. I am very confused. Is it like here in the states where they have a booth as you drive on the road?Any insight greatly appreciate.

See the thread on the right hand side: Are there toll roads in Ireland?

All tolls, other than the M50 in Dublin, have a toll booth.

Shannon to Killarney, you can pay at the toll booth.

It's only the M50 toll in Dublin that doesn't have this option.

You can pay by coin in an automatic machine, but if you have notes, you'll need to go to the manned desk.

The only toll you will encounter from Shannon to Killarney is the Shannon Tunnel toll. The cost is €1.90 one way. Our recent experience of the tunnel toll (last weekend) is that it wasn't manned and there is no credit card option.

So, I would suggest you stop somewhere, buy a coffee or whatever and make sure you have €1.90 in change - no coppers only 10c 20c 50c €1 and then throw it in the basket on the driver's right when passing through.
