San Antonio, USA to Shannon is an approximately 21-hour combination of flight and car. You'll lose 6 hours traveling from San Antonio to Shannon due to the time zone difference. When traveling from San Antonio in February, plan for cooler days and little chillier nights in Shannon: temperatures range from 47°F by day to 36°F at night.

Ireland travel guide

Emerald Isle
Gentle green hills, Guinness, leprechauns, and friendly folks characterize this small isle of a country. From the busy big city of Dublin to cozy countryside, the emerald isle harbors a varied natural landscape and is steeped in tradition. Visitors can immerse themselves in the native Irish language by visiting a Gaeltacht, or Irish-speaking region of the country, where traditional culture thrives. The Irish are known for being open and welcoming: from the moment you land to the moment you leave, you'll be greeted with "cead mile failte"--a hundred thousand welcomes.
