Getting to Galway
Galway Airport has a limited schedule, and more choice may be had through Dublin, Shannon or Ireland West Airports.
Dublin Airport is now 2 hours from Galway by road, if you wish to drive (motorway nearly all of the way, with 3 tolls). A number of coach companies (www.citylink.ie, www.gobus.ie, www.buseireann.ie) have hourly services to and from Galway which take less than 3 hours, and are competitively priced.
Bus Eireann (www.buseireann.ie) also have services from Galway to Shannon and Ireland West Airports.
Getting a train from Galway to Dublin involves travelling into Dublin City Centre to Houston Railway Station.
