There is a scheme, whereby visitors from outside the European Union can purchase goods to take home with them and benefit from a refund of VAT (value added tax) which is a retail tax payable on goods purchased in Ireland.
This can mean a reduction of 17% on the normal purchase price.
There are two VAT refunding agencies in the departures lounge at Shannon Airport:
