Local Transport - Meet In Galway

Getting Around Galway


Galway City is compact enough to tour on foot, and many visitors hire bicycles to assist in getting around. Public buses from Eyre Square circumvent the city and make trips to nearby communities, while taxis hired from Bridge Street or the bus and train stations will take passengers to any area destination.
