The fastest way is by bus, if you go with the train you will need to add another hour to the journey. Aircoach
leaves every hour from Glengall Street and takes you straight to Dublin Airport. There you can take the 720 GoBus
towards Galway Coach Station. This will take you around 5 hours. You can view the current timetables on the Transport for Ireland
If you are planning to go to Cork, you'll take the bus service to Limerick and change there. There's a couple of great things you can do in Cork
. In the English Market you can try all the delicious local treats freshly prepared every day. The Cork Public Museum has local artifacts displayed as well as ancient Greek and Egyptian. It tells the story of the rich medieval history of the town.
From Cork you can take a short train ride toward the harbor town Cobh. That majestic ship, The Titanic, visited this little town last before starting her transatlantic journey to America. When you visit the Titanic Experience there, you will be able to follow one of the passengers' stories during that voyage.
