Hello ! 

I'm a French student and I'm planning my trip in Ireland using bus Eireann. On their website, student fares are available if we have the ISIC (international student identity card) delivered by USIT. But I don't understand what USIT is. Is the ISIC delivered by isic.org (the true ISIC) okay to get student fares in Ireland in general and particularly in Irish buses (Eireann and maybe Citylink) (my French guide book seems to say so...) ? It would be easier for me to buy it with isic.org as there an office in France. 

Thank you for your answers !

Hello Mathilde! 

I totally understand the confusion! USIT is an Irish organisation that provides discounted travels services to students, hence why Bus Eireann mention it as the place to purchase the card - but that is for Irish students. You can get yours from a French website, or isic.org like you were planning to, the card will be equally valid. 

Apart from students fares, have you thought about the Open Road Travel Pass? Depending on how much you intend to use Bus Eireann buses around the island, it could result in a better value!

You can also have a look at our article on bus travel, you may find some useful info there. 

Do you already know which places you want to visit? If you let us know, we'll definitely give you some pointers for all the unmissable things to see and do! 

Have a lovely rest of the day!

PS: vous pouvez tout à fait poster en français si vous préférez. :)

Hi there I know how confusing this is for you.  If this helps attached is info on our collaboration with Bus Eireann where you can use their bus route 350 between Galway and Ennis to book a boat trip with us and enjoy either 1 hour Cliffs of Moher boat cruise or return trip to the Aran Island of Inis Oirr.

Hello ! 

Thank you for your answers ! 

Ce sera plus pratique de commander sur isic.org alors ! J'avais vu l'open road travel pass mais je souhaite prendre le bus pour me rendre d'une ville à l'autre (et faire des petites randos autour de chaque ville : Killarney, Dingle, Cahersiveen, Doolin) donc je pense que les jours illimités du pass ne seront pas très utiles mais je vais étudier ça ! 

Du coup, à propos des tarifs étudiants en bus, on peut les acheter en montant dans le bus ou seulement en ligne (je voyage en septembre, j'ai vérifié les horaires mais pas réservé de bus) ? Ou de toute façon, il vaut mieux réserver à l'avance ? 

Merci beaucoup !

Bonjour Mathilde,

Effectivement, on vous recommande de commander votre carte d’étudiant sur le site de l’ISIC.

Pour acheter vos tickets au tarif étudiant, vous pouvez le faire soit en ligne, soit au guichet en station. Nous vous conseillons toutefois de le faire en ligne et à l’avance pour profiter des meilleurs tarifs. Avec Bus Eireann, la réduction étudiante est valable sur les allez simples, les allers-retours ainsi que sur les pass 10 trajets. 

Une excellente journée à vous !

Antoine

Bonjour ! 

Le voyage s'est très bien passé ! La carte ISIC nous a bien servis dans les musées et en bus (réservation pour un jour (et non un horaire) précis à l'avance sur internet très pratique). Nous avions 2 fois des correspondances de 5min entre deux bus et nous les avons eues ! Mais certains bus avaient du retard donc, surtout hors juillet-août, vérifiez qu'il y a bien un bus après celui prévu si la correspondance est loupée !)

Merci de vos réponses en tout cas !

Bonjour Mathilde !

Merci beaucoup d'être revenue nous donner des nouvelles de votre séjour, c'est très sympa ! Vos conseils sont très intéressants et utiles, en particulier de bien faire attention aux correspondances de bus. Il est vraiment pratique de savoir que vous pouvez réserver sans préciser l'horaire ! 

Nous sommes aussi ravis que votre carte ISIC vous ait fait profiter de réductions intéressantes ! Quels musées avez-vous pu visiter ? Avez-vous pu aussi faire les petites randonnées que vous aviez prévues ? 

Bonne journée à vous !
