Getting around Ireland has never been easier. For maximum choice and flexibility choose from our two different types of Tourist Travel Pass. 

Open Road Pass
The Open Road bus pass allows you unlimited travel on all Bus Éireann scheduled services including Expressway, local, city and town services. These tickets are easy to use, you simply decide when you want to travel and then write the first and last dates of travel on the ticket. Open Road passes are valid only in the Republic of Ireland, and are not valid on Cross-Border services. Buy Open Road Ticket

Irish Explorer Bus/Rail

  • You may buy these tickets on-line & collect them from the following Bus Stations during Travel Centre Opening Hours.

  • For every day of travel you require, you have two days to use it - i.e. Three days travel out of six up to fifteen days travel on a thirty day Open Road Pass.
