About GoBus.ie


GoBus.ie, established in 2009, was Irelands first non-stop motorway coach service operating between Galway and Dublin City/ Airport. We pride ourselves on offering fast, friendly reliable, and comfortable travel on up to 20 daily return services for as little as €13 one way!


Locally owned and operated by Jim Burke and his family from Corofin, Galway.  Jim, recently nominated as EOY Entrepreneur of the Year, has been joined by his sons Dara as Transport Manager and Donal as Fleet Engineer in recent years.


GoBus.ie prides itself on offering flexibility, choice and personal service to our customers, striving to offer the best in comfort and safety on-board our Volvo 9700 coaches.  This is evident in our 3 million fleet upgrade with the arrival of 10 new 171 Volvo coaches in March 2017 which has ensured that GoBus.ie maintains one of the youngest fleets on Irish roads today.


This of course allows commuters the ultimate travel experience with air conditioning, on-board toilet facilities, reclinable seats, access to power sockets and free WIFI for all mobile devices.
