What a lovely trip you and your friends are planning! 💚 Do you already have some ideas of things you'd like to do in Dublin and Galway?
To find suitable holiday homes for your party, I recommend this accommodation finder
. In the middle of the page, you'll see a green button saying "Show filters". Here, you can select several filters to refine your search, such as accommodation type. On the left-hand side, you can also select your destination.
Many visitors to our island enjoy staying in Bed & Breakfast accommodation
which might be considered "typical" holiday accommodation over here. Usually, these include breakfast and offer the wonderful opportunity to get in touch with your local hosts, who love to share tips and recommendations in the area. Should this sound interesting to you, you could select the filter 'B&Bs' in the accommodation finder, or try this B&B-specific website
As for your train journeys between Dublin and Galway, the easiest way to check for timetables and buy tickets is to use the journey planner on the Irish Rail website
. Your departure/arrival train station in Dublin would be 'Dublin Heuston'. Please note that the train does not
depart from Dublin Airport. You would need to take the local public bus or a shuttle bus
into the city centre. The most convenient shuttle service at the moment would be DublinExpress
, as it takes you directly from Dublin Airport to Dublin Heuston station. 🚂
Alternatively, you could take a direct bus
from Dublin Airport to Galway. You would save time by not having to travel into the city centre. This journey planner
can help you research a bus connection. We'll be happy to guide you further should you have any questions about the different bus companies or the booking process. 🚌
Due to the size of your group, I would recommend that you book both accommodation and transport well in advance to guarantee availability.
I hope this helps! Let us know if you have any more questions, we're also happy to respond in Dutch, French or German should you prefer it. 😊
