Travelling in Ireland by coach or bus

Relaxation is the name of the game on Ireland's coach tours and buses, sit back and enjoy the sights of Ireland while someone else looks after the transport

Getting around Ireland by coach is a pretty nifty way of experiencing the island. You have no worries about maps or directions, and can happily watch the countryside glide by in comfort.

Bus Eireann in the Republic of Ireland and Translink in Northern Ireland run coaches all around the island. There's also a huge selection of private coach tour operators, with scheduled tours, airport transfers, city-to-city trips, extended tours, themed trips, corporate travel, social excursions, golf trips and private holidays. Coach tours afford you the chance to let someone else worry about getting there, so you can sit back, relax and experience the glories of Ireland at your own pace.

The Coach Tourism and Transport Council of Ireland has a list of approved members.
