We are going to a wedding at Spanish Point this summer but planning on flying in to dublin to visit friends first the day before. Is it possible to get a bus/coach from Dublin to somewhere near Spanish Point?

Thanks. Lisa

    You can't get a direct bus.

    It will take you quite a while though...almost 7 hours, involving 3 buses. Dublin>Limerick, Limerick > Ennis, Ennis to Spanish Point.

    You can find times and details on the Bus Eireann journeyplanner here:

    http://194.106.151.94/jplan/bin/

    There is only one departure suggested in order to make the required connections as quickly as possible (I put in 8am as start time), leaving Dublin at 13:10.

    A considerably faster alternative will be to take the train to Ennis and then get the bus to Spanish Point. Although you will have to change at least once (depending on departure) the whole journey to Ennis will only take around

    Use www.irishrail.ie to get train information and fares etc. One-way fare is 29 euro.

    Then use the Bus Eireann journeyplanner above to find onward buses to Spanish Point. You can find the timetables for bus 333 (the one you need from ennis) here:

    You are absolutely correct. I misread the timetable. My excuse? I was half-asleep.

    Apologies to the OP.
