Public transport is a cheap, easy and sustainable way to travel around Ireland.  You can get direct public bus connections from Galway Bus station to the Cliffs of Moher and on to Ennis along the Wild Atlantic Way.  Bus connections are available to and from Shannon, Dublin Cork and Knock Airports but you may have to change bus. Choosing public transport allows you to hop on and off at your chosen location and gives you unlimited flexibility.

Bus Eireann operates up to 5 services a day in the summer each way every day between Ennis and Galway and 3 on a year round basis.   Look at your schedule carefully and note that services may be different on Sundays or Bank Holidays. Use www.buseireann.ie  “Plan your Journey” to organise your trip. If you are coming from Dublin or Limerick, you need to go to Ennis for a direct connection to the Cliffs of Moher. The front desk in the Visitor Centre will have a copy of the bus schedule should you need it. The bus will drop you off close to the Visitor Centre.
