Situated in the heart of the beautiful West coast of Ireland, Ireland West Airport Knock is the main international air access gateway for the West, North West and Midland regions of Ireland. It is the fourth largest airport in Ireland and the airport has experienced rapid developments in the last few years and now serves more than 25 scheduled and charter destinations across Ireland, the UK and Europe.
The establishment of Ireland West Airport Knockk was the brain child of Monsignor James Horan in the 1980’s,at a time of widespread economic stagnation and mass emigration from the West of Ireland. Monsignor James Horan, Parish Priest of Knock, and a group of key supporters had the extraordinary vision to build an international Airport which to many seemed unrealistic and unattainable.
The project was the subject of much public debate and media attention. The building of the Airport is a remarkable story of one man’s and a region’s pursuit of a dream and the steadfast determination to keep going until the project was achieved. Ireland West Airport Knock is the people’s Airport as it is a monument to a community’s determination to turn its fortune in time of economic hardship. It has been the subject of much media attention and a number of books have been written on its history.
Ireland West Airport Knock is now recognised as the preferred airport of choice within its catchment region because of the competitiveness, choice and value the Airport offers.
