GoBus is a newly launched coach service between Galway and Dublin Airport which takes in Athlone as well.
The company offers 10 direct services to and from the airport on a daily basis. The service takes the M4 motorway and arrives to the airport via the M50 Toll Bridge, avoiding the hassle of Dublin city centre. The journey time is just over three hours and services major urban areas such as Loughrea, Ballinasloe and Athlone.
