Roscommon to Newtown

Hello everyone and thank you for your time. I will be arriving in Roscommon town in August and thought I was going to rent a car but I can't believe how expensive it is. I have some family roots in the Newtown Whitehall area that I had wanted to visit and was wondering if there is a bus from Roscommon to that area and how frequently does it go? Also, what should be the cost? Thank you so much!

Longford is actually a lot closer to the area. Maybe get the train to there and a taxi from then on?

Thank you docgolf. I will be staying in Roscommon to visit a sick cousin for a few days. I had wanted to day trip out to Newtown Whitehall but didn't know if public transportation would be available. Thank you!

I think Tarmonbarry is the nearest you can get by bus and there's a link to the timetable below:

Then it would be less than 10 minutes by taxi or hackney from Tarmonbarry.

Hope this helps.
