BUSES TO GALWAY

Travelling by bus is a comfortable and affordable way to get to Galway. What’s more, most bus providers now have Wifi connectivity and toilets on board for you convenience too. Through numerous public and private bus providers, Galway has an impressive bus route network connecting it to the rest of Ireland so it’s never been easier to visit Galway by bus. 

As Ireland is a relatively small country in size, bus journeys tend to be short with the typical journey taking anywhere between 1-3 hours depending on where you’re heading (so no mammoth 12hr+ journeys!). For the slightly longer journeys (approx. 4-7hrs), there is often an extended stop midway along the route allowing you some time to get out, stretch the legs and get some fresh air. 

If you know your journey in advance, we recommend booking your tickets with the bus provider online (where possible). That way you will often make some savings and also ensure your space on the bus. For information on bus routes and timetables connecting Galway to the main Airports and the North, South and East of Ireland please see below.
