Ireland Car Rental--Quick question--leaving tomorrow

We have a car reserved at Shannon through Aer Lingus (with Hertz I believe). They say in their email "this is an all inclusive rate with CDW and a zero deductible." From your experiences, does this cover everything, or should I anticipate yet additional insurance charges when we pick the car up? Thanks in advance for any insight.

Doesnt sound like you need to buy additional insurance. When I had a car r3entvl at shannon airport with Dan Dooley., we paid an additional $80 or so for the cdw whebn we booked our package.

Sorry for the typos, I just got my nails done and my delete button is not working.

I did exactly this.
It definitely included everything with no excess deductible.
I only had one problem. When I was told the price by Aer Lingus (who was offering the car for Hertz), the quote was in dollars.
When we arrived at Shannon, Hertz Ireland charged us in Euro. And the exchange rate being what it is, we were actually overcharged. When we returned home, I contacted Aer Lingus who contacted Hertz and we received a refund.
So make sure what you are charged.
Upon returning the car, Hertz barely looked at it when they saw on the contract that it was fully covered.
Have a wonderful time.

I believe that it covers everything but tires and hubcaps. That is pretty much standard over there. Check to make sure the tires look good when you leave.

That sounds to me like you're covered, although they always seem to have a variety of extras to offer, don't they? Hope your trip is wonderful!
