What are our options for transportation from Shannon to Galway City? How much is a cab that far? Are there private car services we can hire? We also need transport for 12 people from Galway to a place 10 minutes away for a wedding. Any suggestions?
WE have found the best way to travel in Ireland is to simply rent a car FROM THE US (prices are MUCH cheaper if rented from here) and pick it up at the airport. If there is a group, vans are also available.
Be leary of local companies that sound too good to be true, they are. We arrived in Ireland with reservation at a local car rental agency, only to find that unless we bought their $20.00 per day insurance, they required a deposit equal the the full value of the car!!!
Driving there is not a problem, just keep YOURSELF, the driver, near the center line!!
regular airport buses from shannon to galway. bus aerann and city link bus.
Taxi, ask for large van/transporter,all Galway cab or hackney offices have them,they takes up to 11 people. Cabs and busses are all available on web, try google.ie
Car hire good, but petrol expensive.
I have recently used a service Shannon2galway.com and found them to be great for airport transfers from Shannon to my Galway hotel. We got a midweek special for the 3 of us to the hotel from the airport for 85. They met us at arrivals with their name plate and stopes us to the front door all included in the price in 1 hour. Great service and very clean car.
