You probably need to change in Belfast.

There is also a direct Goldline coach:

As someone who works for the railway I'd say it might be better taking the bus from Derry to Belfast, then take the train for the rest. The bus is quicker, although the scenery isn't as nice. If you take the bus you will arrive in the Europa Bus Centre in Belfast (aka Great Victoria St railway station) and from here you will need to get a train round to Central railway station to catch the train to Dublin (or get a taxi for about £4-5). If you take the train from Derry to Belfast however just get off at Central Station (Belfast) and connect to Dublin from there without any messing about.

There are two bus services from Derry to Dublin. One is the No.33 Service operated by Bus Eireann and the other is the X4 service operated by Ulsterbus. The train route is scenic but very time consuming between Derry and Belfast

Good morning

There is no direct train from Derry to Dublin however you can travel Derry - Belfast - Dublin.

I have attached a link to the Journey Planner on our website.


You can buy a through ticket for the journey starting at £39.50 for a single Journey.

Alternatively we operate 2 buses from Foyle Street Bus Station in Derry direct to Dublin City Centre. The bus no is X4 or 274. The single fare is £18.35. Please refer to the Journey Planner above for times.

Check out or website for promotional fares which may be suitable


Please let us know if you need any more information about fares or timetables for either service.

Kind regards
