Buses to the Galway Races September 2018 meeting

Galway Races early-autumn meeting is on from Monday 16 and Tuesday 15 September 2018.

For this event, there are no shuttle buses from Eyre Square or from surrounding towns.

Instead, egular regional bus services can be used to get to Galway City, and several Galway city buses route buses go from Eyre Square to the Avenue entrance:
See the Parkmore neighbourhood map for details about this entrance

Regular city fares apply, including TaxSaver and Free Travel passes.

Because this is an evening meeting (gates open 2:15pm, first race 4:15pm), traffic is likely to be moderate and the bus services will run as per their timetables - see the Galway city bus summary for links to these.
