This Bus Eireann bus station located just off Eyre Square is a sight for sore eyes. No proper seating for those waiting to catch a bus, no proper eating facilities etc... People generally queue outside blocking up the entrance to the station and blocking the path for people trying to use the pavement. There's no proper signage dictating particular bus points - it can get very busy and it can be a nightmare trying to navigate the crowds, especially if you have a suitcase in tow. Badly in need of...

I've used Bus Eireann to travel to Galway a few time with friends. I don't really like the station, I think it's like a lot of stations functional and just handy to get to your destination. Eyre Square is a short walk away and the train station close by. You can book online and print off a confirmation of your payment and journey and then hand it in to the ticket office or bus driver before travelling. if you are a student you can get a discount. The journey is fine if a bit long from Dublin to... Read more...

Bus Eireann give a wonderful service, not just in Galway but all around the country. The buses always arrive and leave on time. The timetables run at a very convienent schedule even for those working odd hours. I always find the busdrivers very helpful and willing to obliege when possible. The bus station itself could probably do with a bit of a tidy up and cleaning though.... Read more...

I was waiting on my own to be collected from the bus one evening at about 8/9 o'clock and I was terrified, there were abusive drunk people outside the station and security came nowhere near them and stayed near the train platform. I found a member of staff very rude and unhelpful another time. But some made up for this rudeness. It is very central in Galway- in Eyre Square, and the train station is part of it... I find the buses aren't as comfortable and spacious and the competitors... and it... Read more...

It's been a while since I frequented this place, but was never the most inviting place to hang out. best thing about the station was its proximity to Eyre square and centre of Galway. Mostly students and tourists, it's not a place to lurk around for to long. Cannot comment on the toilets here as never used them.... Read more...

Have travelled to Galway by bus from Dublin twice. It is great to arrive at such a central point in Galway city just around the corner from Eyre Square in the heart of the city. The bus and train station are side by side here. If you are staying in any of the small hotels or B & B's or even the hostels around Eyre Square you are just a few minutes away walking. If you need to go further afield you are close to taxi service in the Square. Because the bus station is in a side road... Read more...

I much prefer taking the train to the bus, but the station itself in Galway is really nice. Clean, with toilets, and a waiting area. It's a fairly small station, as they go, but it's great that it's located right in the city centre and that there's drop off parking outside. Tickets can be bought at the station or else if you prefer the train station isn't that far away.... Read more...

The main bus route by Bus Éireann that I would avail of is not only slightly more expensive than other bus companies, it stops off mid-journey in a town for over half an hour. This really slows down the journey for me. However, some of their other routes can be quite good and very useful if there is no other form of public transport available for that journey. The bus drivers can be either really friendly and cheerful or grumpy.... Read more...

To get a train here, it is a simple process, buy a ticket and wait at the one platform. However, to get a bus, it is very difficult! There should be a separate bus station because the queue for the buses is on a narrow footpath and no one can get by to the train station as a result. Not enough seating, waiting room is small enough and seats are slanted. No ATM. Couldn't find any toilets. Staff can be nice.... Read more...

The bus station would try the patience of a nun. In fact, I've seen it doing just that - a pair of sisters (who had no business standing for long periods of time at their age) asking people which was the bus to someplace, and nobody could tell them. In fact, if you do ask at the counter which bay to wait at, and you push through the throngs packed into the sidewalk that they laughably think qualifies as a proper waiting area, chances are you've been sent to the wrong one and will either a)...

This is one of the smaller bus station. The train station is attached to it. It is suituated in the city centre so handy in that sense. There is is a small cafe and toilets. There is a waiting area in the station. Took me ages ton realise it was there. Overall tis grand. Wish they would have more than 2 benches outside though.... Read more...
