Very happy with bus trip

Dylan R.February 24, 2020 | 

Bus for 8:15 arrived at 8:10 according to surrounding bus drivers when I arrived at 8:15 on the dot. I late to Galway because of this but luckily the driver for the following bus at 11:15 let me on board provided I show the ticket for the 8:15 bus. I however do wish to be compensated somehow as I was 3 hours late.

Much more than a mere vehicle taking you from Cork to Galway, riding the bus will expose you to some of the most stunning panoramas while enroute to your final bus stop.

Buses are energy-efficient. Carrying a passenger over 100 kms by coach only takes 0.6-0.9 liters of gas. Compare that to the 2.6 liters required by high-speed train, 6.6 liters by airplane and 7.6 liters by gas-powered car, and it's clear that the bus is a more environmentally-conscious option for your bus transportation from Cork to Galway.
