Ireland West Airport - Knock: May 2016 marked the 30th Anniversary of Ireland West Airport (formally know as Knock Airport) and the opening up of the West of Ireland to many parts or Europe and visa versa. Today, regular flights depart and arrive from Spain, Portugal, Italy, Scotland and various airports in the main cities in England.

With Ryanair flying to Liverpool and Flybe flying directly to Manchester, both on a very regular basis, travel time and cost has been greatly reduced.
