Connemara Shuttle Bus

0 comments
The Connemara Bus is now providing a daily service between Clifden and Leenane, with stops at Connemara National Park (Letterfrack), Kylemore Abbey, Killary Fjord and Cleggan Pier.

This is a hop-on, hop-off service - and though it is marketed to tourists, locals / residents are welcome to use it as well.  

As the only regularly scheduled public transport service which stops at Kylemore, it provides a way to visit the Abbey without taking a full-day tour - even for visitors from Galway City (via the 9am CityLink bus to Clifden).

There are four departures from Clifden Tourist Office each day, and three from Leenane.

Tickets are valid for 2 days, and cost:
  • Adult €20
  • Concession (Student/OAP) €12.50
  • Children €7.50

Bookings can be made via the Irish Day Tours website.

Easter 2017 is from Friday 14 -  Monday 17 April.

Good Friday (the 14th) is a bank holiday but not a public holiday in the Republic of Ireland:  most public-transport run normal services, with a few exceptions.  However all pubs, hotel bars and off-licenses are closed, all banks and many publc services (eg post-office) are closed, and some other companies treat the day as a "bank holiday".

Easter Saturday and Easter Sunday are not public holidays:  usual Sat / Sun timetables generally apply.

Easter Monday is a public holiday, and in most cases Sunday services will be run.

Information from specific bus and train companies is summarised below.  Always confirm details with the company.

City Direct 411 no longer serves Claddagh / Henry St / The West

0 comments
CityDirect have announced a change to the route of bus 411, effective from 2 January 2017.

Bus before 6pm will no longer travel from the city via Eyre Square South, Spanish Arch / Jury’s Inn and Henry Street.

Instead, all route 411 buses (day and night) will travel via Eyre Square North, Francis St, University Rd / UHG/NUIG,    Route 411 still serves Rahoon Road and the terminus is still Cappagh Road.

This means that CityDirect now have a bus from Cappagh Road via Westside to Eyre Square every 15 minutes, and that the route 411 follows the same route to and from the city.
