Driving to Shannon Airport from Galway

Hello everyone - we are spending our last night in Ireland in Galway and will have to drive to Shannon to catch our flight out (and to return the rental car).

Our flight is for 4:50pm on a Wednesday with RyanAir. I was thinking we should try to make it at the airport for 3pm. What time would y'all recommend leaving Galway?

At that time of day 1 hour -1.20 is plenty of time. Be sure to check in online with Ryanair to speed up your transit.

what day are you flying? Weekday or weekend.

I suggest you leave about one o clock on a weekend (Sunday) this will give you plenty of time to return your car and get that business done so you can be free from 3 p.m. onwards to relax.

On a weekday I would leave a little earlier just because there would be more traffic.
