  • To and From Dublin Airport

    Dublin Transportation

    I am really impressed by these folks. They have a ticket counter right in front of the airport and are really friendly. You can buy online before, at this ticket counter or from the driver at any stop. I bought it from the counter when I arrived and had some time before my bus was due to leave. The gentleman at the counter offered to hold my bags...

    Cork Transportation

    Bus Eireann coaches will take you not only around the city but also to many places all over Ireland. The fares are lower than on trains and you can get special tourist rates. You can get the Open Road Pass valid for 6 - 30 days on all Eireann buses across the country, or the Irish Explorer ticket valid on buses as well as trains. And you don't have...

    Limerick Transportation

    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.

    Galway Transportation

    On Internet I had seen that there were a few buses daily from Clifden to Dublin and I decided to take the 9:15 bus. The bus stop in Clifden is on Market Street, not even a minute away from Clifden Town Hostel where I stayed. The bus arrived in time and I left my luggage in the compartment below (large bags must be put there). On the bus I paid...

    Killarney Transportation

    Killarney is on the Tralee-Dublin train line. It is about 4 hours to get to Dublin from there. If you want to go to Limerick or Cork by train, you will have to change trains at either Limerick Junction or Millstreet. To go to any other town, its best to either rent a car or get the bus

    Waterford Transportation

    Waterford City is very well serviced by the National Bus Eaireann service which links the city with the other towns in the County and also with the rest of Ireland. The main Bus Terminal is situated on the Quay opposite Dooleys Hotel. The Bus Terminal is a newly built, modern, warm building with plenty of shelter while you are waiting for your...

    Kinsale Transportation

    The best way to explore Kinsale is to do so by car, and if you're in the Cork area don't forogt to visit this pearl of southern Ireland, and in my opinion one of the best places in Ireland. I liked it alot!

  • Train and Bus times

    Sligo Transportation

    We took the train from Dublin Connolly direct to Sligo in a little over 3 hours. Nice train, comfortable and on time. It was a one-way ticket for 27 Euros (2008). The train is much faster than the bus. We bought snaks at Connolly Station next door on Lord Edward Street, less expensive than on the train.

    DART (Dublin Area Rapid Transport) is the train line running along Dublins coastline, from Malahide and Howth southwards as far as Greystones, Co Wicklow.

    Dingle Transportation

    I know there is daily bus service because I met someone who had just arrived from Killarny. Ireland isn't well known for an efficient bus system and she was upset about the delays encountered along her journey. She arrived at 9:00PM and the scheduled arrival in Dingle was supposed to have been at 6:30PM. So at least one bus a day from Killarney,...

The bus left Galway around 9am for a 10:30 ferry out of Rossaveal. I took a dramamine for motion sickness, but the ride wasn't too bad. It was slightly grey and we sat on top with windbreakers on.

    Cobh Transportation

    Cork is linked to Cobh by an hourly train service.. Trains start in Cork at Kent Station and also stop at Fota. Travelling time to Cobh is around 25 minutes. The commuter afre applies on that route, regardless of destination you pay 5,00 EUR vor a single ride and 7,70 EUR for a day return ticket (as of early 2013).

  • Traffic

    Tralee Transportation

    With the narrow streets, the traffic was very congested every place we went in town and at every time of day. Not to mention, they drive on the opposite side to what we are used to in the USA, which made even crossing the street on foot interesting, to say the least. Its not that far to anywhere, and I'd really suggest you plan to walk almost any...

    Car parking is an extortionate nine euro fifty a day - an utter rip off. You could reduce your costs by parking at the 'Park inn' hotel at eight euro a day (and nothing at all if you drive on the grass around the barriers !). The Bunratty castle hotel has a very good rate of less than six euro a day, but their shuttle bus only operates from 7.00...

    I took a bus from dublin on the "wicklow tour". Any of the tour buses that take you around Dublin have brochures for this kind of day excursion. It stopped in some other places on the way and was a nice way to see some of the counrty side.

    There are regular buses from Dublin to Drogheda. You can see the timetable here: http://www.buseireann.ie/site/home/. If you are arriving to Dublin airport you can go directly to Drogheda without going to Dublin city since at least some of the buses stop near Dublin airport on their way to Drogheda.

    There are only 156 people allowed on the island each day-13 boats with 12 people in each. The fare in July was 45euro. All the boats are open so you can get very wet in rough seas. I found one covered boat from Ballinskelligs-this cost 50 Euro but was well wortyh the extra charge. We watched people on other boats arrive cold wet and shivering...

Much of the 33 miles of line especially south of Dublin city runs along the coast and the scenic...

    Don't be fooled by the picture - from the 'west on track' pressure group. 2010 saw the reopening of the train line between Limerick and Galway. This is great if you are exploring the west coast of Ireland, and eventually you should be able to get all the way up to Sligo by train. There are about 4 to 5 railcars a day that make the two hour trip...

It isn't the easiest place to drive & the buses tend to take priority - being so much bigger guarantees priority parking at the main stopping places. The driver's craic will keep you & your fellow tourists entertained with lots of useful local information.

    This picture is actually in Dublin at the Bus Station just behind the Custom House North of the River Liffey. Bus Eireann is actually a long distance bus service, so you wouldn't take it to get to Howth or Malahide. Instead, you'd get on the Dublin Bus. You're looking for route 31 from Lower Abbey Street in Dublin. To Malahide, look for the 42 bus...

    Two roads to Dingle. From the north via Tralee and Conor Pass or from the east via Killarney, Inch Beach and the southern end of the Dingle Peninsula. Both are scenic and well worth the drive.

I hadn't ridden it for a meter at that...
