Hi Barbara, you can get a train from Heuston Station to Killarney.

Some of the trains are direct but most of them require a change in Mallow(this is a hassle free change)

www.irishrail.ie

You can get the LUAS(tram) from the city centre to the station

Yes, though at times cheaper, most people would not take the bus from Dublin to Killarney. The train is the most convenient way to go. Also, the Irish Rail website often offers discounted fares for certain trains on certain days so if you are flexible it is worth checking them out. For example the early trains (7 and 9 am) form Dublin on Tue Jan 31st are both E10 whereas the regular fare is E37.

It can be done, but it looks like you may have to switch trains as many as 5 times, lol.

More practical to take the bus from Galway to Killarney - take the No. 51 express bus from Galway to Limerick, then the No. 14 express bus from Limerick to Killarney.
