Shannon airport is a small airport so it's basically perfume, Irish alcohol, sweets and Irish fare (some clothes, chocolates, cigarettes, tat ect). Nothing exciting or that cheap either.

Ooops! Sorry I didn't list out everything that every shop in the airport sells though I did mention clothes which includes scarves, socks ect. And yes you'll get the smoked salmon and cheeses.

If there's something you want, I'd not wait till departure day to procure.

I agree...it's just we've heard there are great buys at Duty Free at the airport....we just don't want liquor or perfumes....we're looking for souvineers.

LK's advice is good, get as many things as you can before departure day....some of the best souvenirs can be found in little shops along the way.....by that I mean local made items, like scarves, sweaters, caps, jewelry, soaps, etc....

That's our plan...but we are not sure if there will be time to actually "shop" along our way...very tight schedule.....that is why I am asking about the airport shopping.
