Travel to Galway

The most convenient way of travelling to Galway from abroad is flying to Dublin and take the airport bus (GoBus or CityLink). It leaves from Dublin airport directly to Galway every 30 minutes. The trip takes about 3 hours. There are two bus companies offering this service and they leave from the same terminal. Tickets can be bought there.
Other options are the airports at Shannon and Knock, but the bus connection is not as good so participants may need to rent a car. Travel time to Galway is nearly the same as from Dublin.
