Yes, on the night before your departure you should stay close to Shannon. You indicate a mid-morning flight. You have to leave time for car return and transfer to the airport, then check-in, luggage drop, security and US Customs. US citizens clear customs in Dublin or Shannon upon their departure. This can take 10 minutes or there can be a line. Leave enough time. You could consider staying in Ennis or Bunratty.

Second tip, don't pick up the car until you are leaving Dublin. A car in Dublin is a hindrance.

In County Cork, we had a great stay at Bantry House & Gardens:

Note: not in Cork City

In Killarney we enjoyed Killarney Lodge:
