Travel time to Galway

I am flying into Dublin on route to the centre of Galway and will be hiring a car for the journy.

How long will it take me to drive and are the roads good?

Thanks

Ian.

From Dublin Airport - 2 hours 20 minutes approx. The road is excellent now with the new M6 motorway.

Possibly a bit ambitious for a visitor Airport to city centre but Under 3 hours and 3 tolls, M50, M4,M6

Should do it in two and a half hours.Very easy to get on to the M50 at Dublin airport then its good main road all the way.The M50 is Dublin's ring road just as the M25 is London's but not as busy.

If you are collecting your car at Dublin airport, and the driving on the M50 to get to Galway (exit 7 off the M50), please be aware that you will be passing through a toll section (€3), between Junctions 6 and 7. .However, there is no toll booth, as this toll has to be either pre-paid, or no later than 8.00 PM, the day following the day you used the M50 toll section. Here is a link to get details on tolls and how they can be paid - nra.ie/GeneralTollingInformation/KnowTheToll/ . Check with the car hire company, in case they might have that toll included in their cost.

You will have two further tolls on the motorway to Galway, on the M4 and the M6 - €1.80 each. There are toll booths where these can be paid.
