Galway regional bus services - important bus stops

Arrival and departure points for regional and national bus services to and from Galway city.



Stop Details
HCathedral bus stop
Used by many of the services for 3rd level students, and some regional commuter services.

The stop may not currently have a bus stop sign, but is painted on the road. To get to it, cross the Salmon Weir bridge, and turn left.  Check the waiting buses, as they may leave from either side of the road.
Regional buses do not leave from the stop (which has a sign) that you would reach by turning right.
C The "private" bus stop at the north side of Eyre Square:  it is used by some regional commuter services, and also the City Direct city services.  Labelled Stad Bus  - this is just the Irish translation of bus-stop.
