Car Hire Irun

Irun Guide

There’s not too much of note to recommend Irun to tourists although the fragmentary remains of Oiasso are of interest to some. Its popularity lies in its location where people staying in the city have the choice of trips to the western Pyrenees, beautiful San Sebastian or can venture over the border to France and enjoy the beaches of Biarritz. A favourite of tourists visiting the town is the annual Alarde procession which recreates an event from the Peninsular War.


Irun Directions

The airport is found just north of the CBD of Irun and south of Hondarribia. Following the airport road south will bring you to the city ring road; the GI636 from which you can access all parts of the city.


Irun Parking

With 223 spaces, you won’t find parking difficult at San Sebastian Airport. The car park is only metres from the terminal and charges by the minute; approximately 2.5c per minute.


Irun Flight Information

Irun is the location for San Sebastian Airport and whilst it’s only a domestic airport, you may decide that taking a connecting flight to Barcelona or Madrid is worth it to avoid the half hour trip from Biarritz across the border in France.  Budget airlines fly to both Barcelona and Madrid whilst flying to Biarritz limits you to routes from Gatwick, Stansted or Manchester.


Hotels Near Irun Airport

Looking for a good quality hotel chain in Irun should see you checking out the Ibis Ciboure St Jean de Luz or perhaps the Best Western Hotel Colbert. For something a little more refined try the Grand Hotel Loreamar, a stunning hotel with impeccable service.


Irun Time Zone

An hour ahead of Greenwich Mean Time, Irun is in the Central European Time Zone (GMT+1)

Irun Info

Irun is an important city on the border with France. The city was strategically placed in the Peninsular War and often saw military action. Over the centuries it has grown and gained importance for being a logistics hub and location where the French SNCF railway joins the Spanish RENFE. It has an older historical significance too for archaeologists who had been searching for the ancient city of Oiasso, now believe Irun to be the location.
