I’ll be heading all the way across the country on Friday to visit my cousins. Three hours drive. If I see any special aircraft movements at Shannon/EINN, I’ll probably head over and spot them. Would ye like to see some pictures ?
Shannon Airport? Yes! I would love to see some. There are specials sometimes, especially Boeing 747 Freighters and Omni Aircrafts you could look out for. On Sunday there is a chance I will spot a few aircraft in Dublin.

Yeah Thunderbolt already mentioned that about the category. Dublin gets more traffic than Shannon but Shannon gets more interesting stuff. I know your a local, any spotting location recommendations? It’s actually my first time in Shannon.
Basically the same direction, except ignore the Lufthansa Technik parking, and just continue on straight ahead for a long time until you will reach a cross junction. Turn left and you will pass a bar, and a large Radar. Continue straight on until the road finishes.
Here is an example screenshot from my video. You can sometimes catch an Antonov AN-124 if you are lucky. This is why I usually set notifications for this beast.
Yeah haha, EIDW is a good spotting airport as well, only 40 minutes from me as opposed to 3 hours for Shannon 🥴🥴🥴🥴🥴
Actually dreading the drive though.
The M7 is literally the most boring road on earth!!!
