GETTING AROUND GALWAY BY BUS

Through numerous public and private bus providers, there is an impressive bus network connecting Galway City with towns and villages right throughout the county. What’s more, travelling by bus is a comfortable and affordable way to get around Galway and visit new towns and villages. Most bus providers now have Wifi connectivity on board for you convenience too.

Where possible, we recommend booking your tickets with the bus provider online. That way you will often make some savings and also ensure your space on the bus. Otherwise you can purchase your ticket at the providers office desk (if one available) or from the driver directly. Be sure to talk to your driver if you are unsure about your stop or when to get off.

You can find more comprehensive information on bus routes throughout Galway county and timetables below.
