BUS ROUTES IN GALWAY CITY

Getting around Galway city by bus is relatively straightforward and due to the extensive inner-city bus network, passengers can get to many different areas around the city easily. The inner-city bus services are provided by the public transport provider of Ireland, Bus Éireann. The bus routes usually start at Eyre Square (city centre), travel outwards to one or more suburbs and then turn around and return to Eyre Square (city centre).

To catch the bus, find your nearest stop (heading in the direction you wish to go) and wave down the bus driver to let him know you need picked up. If there are more people waiting at the stop the bus driver will instinctively stop anyway.

You can pay the bus fare directly to the driver using coins or small value notes i.e. €5. Larger notes are usually frowned upon unless purchasing for a group of people. See here for fare prices and all day saver tickets for city buses in Galway (Tip: If you plan on using the city buses quite a bit during your stay, for cheaper fares check out more information on getting a Leap Card).

To get off the bus at a stop all you need to do is press one of the bell buttons located throughout the bus just before the stop you want to get off at comes up.

You can find information on all bus routes, timetables and stops below.
