Knock is a small sized town that is located in the Western region of Ireland, in the area known as County Mayo. It is a popular destination for tourists and locals alike thanks to its religious background.
It is claimed that important Christian figures such as the Virgin Mary, John the Evangelist, and St John, all appeared together in a vision in the year 1879.
As a result, the town is the home of a significant Catholic shrine (a Marian Shrine) that is an active place of pilgrimage for modern worshippers well over one million pilgrims, on average, find their way over to Knock Shrine every year.
A rental car makes it possible for tourists to visit the Knock shrine without having to rely on big tour groups, a perhaps more flexible and enjoyable way to visit. The shrine is in a major building that is well sign-posted, and should be easy to spot when driving past it.
If you're not of a religious disposition or merely prefer to explore other pursuits, Knock is also a good starting base for visiting surrounding areas. With all of beautiful County Mayo on your doorstep, our car rental service can open the door to a world of delightful countryside and historic villages.
If you prefer to stay local, thanks to its status as a shrine town, Knock is well equipped to handle large numbers of tourists, so organising for a stay will not be an issue.For those who like camping, you will be pleased to know that Knock is the home of a very high quality camping and caravanning park area that has plenty of space for many tourists to camp at once.
