    Concert Bus Services

    by Armada3000 Written Oct 7, 2011

    Limerick is home to a unique bus service called Concert Travel - it goes straight to big concerts and festivals. It is very handy and much cheaper than trains or staying overnight.

    I went to Electric Picnic with them in September - it fast fast, comfortable, no one drinking on the bus or anything and the staff were great.

    Highly recommended.

    Busing Around Limerick

    by cmboothe Written Nov 11, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The most convenient way to get around Limerick is by bus. There are Bus Eirrean stops all over the place, but the key bus stop for UL students is on Roches street. The stop outside of Brown Thomas will take you to Raheel.

    The fare is 1.20 euro per trip, except for the rare "eurobus" which goes to and from the University.

    The bus schedules are not reliable, so feel free to ask the people around for specific information about what bus goes where.

    Plenty of taxis are around and at reasonable prices, one place to call is:
    Castletroy Taxi: 061 332 266

    The main shopping center is down O'Connell street between William and Roches Streets. There is also a pedestrian shopping area. In the city center you will find Penney's, Roches, Dunnes, Argos, as well as the other little shops that are so fun to go in.

    Getting around Limerick

    by Kristina1701 Written Nov 22, 2003

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The cheapest way to get around the city is by bus. Most, if not even all, busses depart from William Street which is a side street of O'Connell Street; just a stone's throw away from Brown Thomas department store (that's also where you get out of the bus if you arrive downtown from the suburbs).
    Another option is taking a taxi. A taxi drive from the city centre to Castletroy for example costs about 6-8 Euro, it pretty much depends on the taxi driver! However there are also taxi companies which have fixed prices.

    Limerick City Bus Service

    Local bus services are quite alright, they are mainly cross-city services, that go throgh either O'Connell St or William St in the city centre. The city centre is pretty compact, you could easily walk it. Only for amenities like the University of Limerick or Limerick Insitute of Technology, the Regional Hospital might you require a bus from the centre.
