It is about 45 miles and pretty much all of it is on the N17 (depending on where you are going in Galway) Since you are leaving at 10 you won't hit too much traffic and as far as I know the road is much improved. It was good last time I travelled it but that was some time ago. My mom takes her aunt (95y0) to Knock once a year and without fail is impressed with how much faster the journey continues to be. You will make it within an hour and twenty tops - probably closer to one hour but watch your speed!

It is more like 50 miles on the N17 via Tuam, but if you allow yourself two hours you should make it okay taking account of the Galway traffic and the odd tractor.

You'll only find kilometres posted in Repubic now so approx 80kms (50mph) from airport is prably about right.

Road has improved immeasurably from Charlestown/Knock to Claremorris with one long wide single carraigeway ,but while plans are in place to upgrade from C'morris to Galway with new Dual Carraigeway, it looks like that will be a few years away.
