KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Knock

  • For its small size, Knock has one of the most renowned tourist attractions in the area, the National Shrine of Our Lady of Knock. It was built on the site of a religious apparition that occurred there in 1879. You should also make time to visit the Knock Museum, which tells the story of the apparition, with original handwritten letters from witnesses on display. It’s also worth visiting Graune Pet Farm and Play Centre if you’re on holiday with your children, which is roughly 5.5 miles outside of town. Car hire in Knock will give you the freedom to explore these and other attractions at your leisure.
  • The main airport serving Knock is Ireland West Airport Knock. It’s just over 4 miles from the town itself. Here you can pick up the Knock car hire you’ve booked, with companies like Avis, Europcar, Budget and Hertz represented. You’ll find their offices in various places in the main terminal, with some of them right in front of you when you arrive and others requiring a short walk from one end of the terminal to the other. Your actual car will be waiting for you in the airport car park, which is about a 4-minute walk from the terminal exit along the main access road that goes past arrivals.
  • Being such a small rural town in County Mayo, you won’t have to worry about much vehicle traffic when you’re driving around. However, keep a look out for pedestrians and local inhabitants making their way around on bicycles. The driving conditions are best described as sedate, so although the speed limits are standard for small towns in Ireland, you’ll most likely find yourself naturally driving a bit slower than usual most of the time without realising it. Be careful about the occasional oncoming traffic on the small rural roads outside of the town too.
  • With no rush hour to speak of, you’re very unlikely to find yourself snarled up in any traffic if you choose car hire in Knock. What you’re more likely to have to deal with is the snow in winter, which can fall in quite substantial amounts – to the point where it can shut down Knock Airport. Of course this can make the roads more challenging on which to drive, so if you’re visiting in January, take this into account when planning your trip.
  • Book your rental car in Knock at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy rental cars in Knock are around 19% cheaper than other car types, on average

FAQs about renting a car in Knock

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Knock?

    You can take your pick of hire car types to use in Knock, as you won’t have to take traffic conditions into account at all. At the same time there aren’t any areas you can’t reach by car, due to narrow inner area streets, for instance. In winter, however, it might be a better idea to hire an MPV or even a 4x4, rather than a standard city car or saloon, because of the likelihood of snow.

  • What’s the speed limit in Knock?

    The speed limits in Knock conform to those in the whole of County Mayo. Ireland uses the metric system, so the speed limits in the town are signposted inkm/h. You’ll need to drive at or under 50km/h (around 30mph) in the built-up and residential areas, and 80km/h (about 50mph) on the regional roads on the outskirts of the town. However, once again, in winter the speed at which you can drive will depend on the snowfall, so the actual speed that you can feasibly drive at can change, regardless of legal limits.

  • Where are the best places to park in Knock?

    Parking is free all over Knock – in fact, residents successfully opposed the introduction of parking meters in 2018. It also won’t be difficult to find a parking spot close by to wherever you want to visit.

I was ripped off because I had to pay far more than stated in my booking. I still don't know where the hidden costs come from and the friendly Avis-lady couldn't tell me either - and I tried contacting Priceline but there is no way you can file a complaint or reach anyone. I tried online but I guess it wasn't even read by anyone. This was the worst travel or booking experience ever. I will never ever again book anything via Priceline and Kayak!!! If anybody reads this: I am still waiting for someone to explain the extra-costs!!!
