Galway is a town located on the far-west side of Ireland, where ground transportation options are limited in comparison to other European countries. To get from Dublin to Galway, you have 2 transport options; you can either take a private taxi transfer or the CityLink Airport Express bus. Both options take around 2 hours and 30 minutes, in normal traffic conditions. However, due to the long distance between Dublin airport and Galway (214 km), a taxi ride costs €350 on average. Taking the Express bus is a lot cheaper, with a one-way ticket costing only €18. Welcome Pickups offers meet and greet services and a friendly introduction to Dublin at the same price as a regular taxi. Click here to see the cost.
