  1. I dare to differ for BE city services:
    Christmas Eve cancellations will start between 7 and 8pm - most of last buses from Eyre Square are between 1920 and 1930hrs, except for 409 (2000hrs). The last inbound buses are the return buses from those departures. As far as I can tell, no city services will operate on the 26th.
    On NY's Eve (31st) the last city buses will depart between 2015 and 2120hrs, each route slightly differently.

    Also, City Direct:
    Standard service on 28th, 29th. Saturday service on Mon 23th, Fri 27th, Mon 30th, Tue 31st, Thu 2nd and Fri 3rd. Sunday service on Wed 1st. Limited Saturday service on Tue 24th (last ex-Eyre Square 411 @ 1815hrs). No service Wed 25th or Thu 26th. Standard service resumes Sat 4th.

    1. You're absolutely correct - for city services, which are listed on http://news.galwaytransport.info/2013/12/christmas-2013-14-city-bus-and-train-services.html

      The details above apply to regional services only. (I'd love to have them all on the one page, but it just gets too squished up.)
