Bus Éireann runs several Expressway buses into Ennis and Galway City—the principal depots in the region—from Dublin, Cork City, and Limerick City. All buses mentioned are Bus Éireann (which includes Expressway) unless specified otherwise. Expect bus rides to last about one hour longer than the time it would take you to travel the distance by car. The Cliffs of Moher, Lisdoonvarna, Doolin, Liscannor, and Lahinch have two scheduled services a day (in each direction) from Galway, and only one from Ennis. Guided tours of the Cliffs of Moher and the Burren leave from the bus stations in Galway City and Ennis. Citylink operates frequent buses between Galway City and Shannon Airport as well as Dublin and Dublin Airport.
