How to get to Galway?

by tregs22


I am looking at visiting Galway in the summer but cannot seem to find any flights going from anywhere near where I live. Does anyone know if there are any airlines that fly to Galway from either Southampton or Bournemouth airports? If not these, then any airports near to these?

Hi Julie - I would recommend that you get the Ryanair flight from Bournmouth to Dublin. In June this arrives at 8.15am - you can then take either a direct Citylink or Bus Eireann bus to Galway which should have you in Galway city by lunchtime. You could also go in to the centre of Dublin to get a (more expensive) train to Galway.
Coming back the flight is at 21.40 which gives you plenty of time to get from the West of Ireland in time to check in at Dublin Airport.

Hope this helps,

Air Arann appears to fly from Galway to London Luton, but that's not all that close to you. Indeed, I think flying to Dublin then busing or training across the country is probably a pretty sensible way to go.

Ryanair does do flights from both Heathrow and Gatwick to Shannon, but I am told by a friend in Galway that it's just as easy to get from Galway to Dublin as to Shannon...indeed, when she flies internationally, it's always out of Dublin.

Have fun!

Thanks very much to you both =D After looking into flying into Dublin I have found that this would actually be much easier and a lot cheaper!

Thanks again

Smirting & The Smoking Ban

by orlikins

Smirting is a combination of the words smoking + flirting, geddit? It started when people had to go out for a ciggie after the ban was enforced, and got chatting to fellow smokers outside on the street, eyes meeting across a cloud of blue nicotine... ;) So you may just meet a local hottie in this way!!

REMEMBER - Since March 2004, you CANNOT smoke inside bars, cafes or restaurants, or anywhere where people are working (e.g. taxis, offices etc.)
The legislation is officially known as the Public Health (Tobacco) Act, see link to it below for a summary.

You may smoke in outside in the street or in designated smoking areas, but never inside a place where people are working (includes offices, bars, restaurants, shops, shopping centres, taxis, etc)

The Cottage Bar

by challenger about Pubs with Traditional Music

Last time I went to Galway I managed not to see any of the attractions as we got stuck for a few days in the Cottage Bar near Salthill. The first night we were there, there was a hen night on for Sharon Shannon's sister. Sharon is a very popular Irish folk musician and the nicest girl you can ever meet. The pub was full of eccentrics and mad musicians. Even when they couldn't stand or talk any more, they still played their music pitch perfect. I practically lived on toasted ham and cheese sandwiches for a few days as that was the main grub on sale in the pub. Though there is no guarantee that Sharon will always be there when you pay the bar is visit, there also normal regular trad sessions over the weekends. It's like the Bermuda Triangle: Once in, you may never find your way out again.

Getting in from Shannon airport

by sourbugger

The cheapest flights are often into Shannon Airport. By bus (Bus Eiraan), there is a bus about every hour which takes just over two hours. You normally have to change at Ennis. The Bus that currently leaves at midday is however a direct service. (service 51).


Citylink have just started (June 2003) a new four-times dailey service that is direct.
A single is 14 Euros : for details see their site at

a little bit of Bohemia

by sourbugger about Anton's Cafe

I only came across this wonderful little cafe recently, mainly because it is situated on Father Griffin Road - the road between Galway town centre and Salthill. It attracts a mainly studenty crowd, but with a smattering of business types who appreciate the quality of his snacks and salad - all fresh and prepared on the premises. The decor could be best described as 'bohemian' with wooden floors and 'stressed' furniture to match. Worth the five minute walk past Jury's inn for a decent cup of coffee.

As footnote, you might like to know that father Griffin was in fact a very junior curate in 1920. He died i mysterious circumstances. First he disappeared with three unknown men. This made headlines by itself, but his body was discovered in an irish bof some five days later. I don't think anyone was ever brought to justice. the salad, oh, the salads.
