Going to Shannon with no idea!

I'm supposed to be flying into shannon next week from the UK, I'm and Aussie and was supposed to have a friend of mine show me around but that's fallen through, I have no idea what to do now, any ideas would be very much appreciated!

Arrive on the 20th, Staying 5 days . I can't hire a car as my license was stolen and takes too long to get another one from back home, that was quite dissapointing really. I know it'll be brilliant just a little scared of doing it on my own, I guess you have to go it alone at some stage!

oh spuglet how awful about your license....

let some of the local folks tell you where and how to go to different places as i am not qualified about buses, trains, etc.....

i know you can take a taxi from shannon to bunratty and to limerick easily enough just not sure how much is within taxi distance....

i do so hope you can still have a wonderful time......

Is worth contacting a couple of rental firms. You won't be the first person to have rocked up without a piece of paperwork I'm sure.

I have rented a couple of times when mine was in for an address change.

Is worth asking!
