Rental Cars available In the Airport/Not a shuttle

Does anyone know which car hires actually have cars in the airport? The last 4 trips took way too much time getting the car off premise then waiting to return it.

due to the congested layout of dublin airport which is only a couple of miles from the city centre, parking has to be remote. but by remote, all that is meant that it is across a main road. you could risk the walk but i dont see why you would have a problem with a 5 min shuttle. and you dont need to wait to return it. just drive in and hand over the keys.

last year it took almost an hour to return to Enterprise and get the shuttle back to the terminal.

Well then you just need to factor in the extra time requirement. Or return your car the night before and then use a hotel shuttle or taxi.

I know from past experience that Dan Dooley keeps some cars in the parking garage under their In Terminal desk. I'm not sure what their 'pecking order' is, but perhaps you could pre-arrange with them, to have your car staged there?

Better option might be flying into Shannon but you still get a shuttle more often than not.

I think it;s just the way it is. As has been said, the layout of the airport in Dublin doesn't help matters. I know that many visitors ar ein a rush, as they have a relatively short time to enjoy the delights of Ireland, but sometimes things just take as long as they take, and there's not really a way to speed it up, so I just go with the flow.

Hertz cars are parked on the parking outside terminal, but you have to return them to different spot (and take a shuttle to terminal).
