Bus Travel

Getting around by bus is easy enough if you plan to visit only the larger towns. Bus Éireann’s routes are regular and reliable and there are also several privately run local bus companies, including McGeehan Coaches.

Bus Éireann helpfully offers a flexible Open Road bus pass ideally suited for travelers in the Northwest. A three-day tourist travel pass costs €60 and €16.50 for each additional day up to a maximum of six days. You can go anywhere in the republic on the nationwide network of services with this pass, but it is not valid across the border in Northern Ireland.
