Public Transport Directions

Catch the 404 - Newcastle bus from Eyre Square.

The bus goes over the river, past the Cathedral (on the left) and then past the University (on the right).

Outside the hospital, the bus make a right-hand turn.   There are still university building on the right for some time.

St Francis Nursing Base is on the right, after the last of the university buildings (ask the bus-driver to stop at the closest stop, it's difficult to describe otherwise).

Then main entrance to Corrib Village is at the next bus stop.   (Note:  there is another foot entrance inside the university campus as well).

The bus makes a sharp left-hand turn outside the Westwood Hotel:  there is a bus stop immediately around the corner:
  • Galway Business Park is across the road again
  • The driveway entrance to Dangan House / Dangan Nurseries is a little way down Newcastle Rd (to the south of the business-park).
  • For the Regional Sports Centre, walk a little further up past the business-park, and take the next entrance on the right.
  • Bushypark Church is on the left, approximately 1 mile further up Newcastle / Dangan Rd.
The bus  then continues down Thomas Hynes Rd.   The 2nd bus stop is immediately outside St Joseph's Special School, and Galway Educate Together National School (GETNS) is behind it (access down the driveway at the right of St Joseph's).   After that, the bus turns right and does a circuit around Westside Shopping Centre
