Shuttle bus Dublin ariport to Galway

Hello,

Is it necessary to pre-book the bus from the airport to Galway or do you just buy your ticket on the day? Provided there are no delays, my flight arrives at 11.05. There appears to be more than one bus company which plies this route, is one better than the other or about the same? Which one do you advise on going with?

Thank you.

GoBus or CityLink Express buy your ticket on whichever of these buses are waiting when you clear the Airport.. no point pre purchasing and having 59 1/2 minutes to wait because you just missed the one you bought a ticket for.

I have only used GoBus and never been disappointed with their service. As Professor mentioned, there is no need to purchase tickets in advance.

Thanks for that Professor and gablues. That's a good point about missing one and not being able to get the opposition. I will buy when I'm there.

Many thanks Night_Raiders but I can't take the credit as I merely posted somebody's previous post.

No, but you get to sit at the front of the bus and have a free Guinness.

(It's good to see a bit of banter on an otherwise dry travel forum.)

You can pre - buy your tickets for both GoBus and Citylink and if you arrive earlier or later, your ticket will still be valid for the earlier / later buses provided there is room on the buses. But as already said, there is usually no need to buy in advance.
