Plan your Christmas journey home to Limerick with Bus Éireann

If you’re travelling home this Christmas from Tralee to Limerick, Bus Éireann is encouraging customers to leave the car at home and travel by bus instead. During the festive season towns and villages experience a huge increase in traffic which can lead to driver frustration and traffic congestion. For customers wishing to avoid the traffic rush, Bus Éireann is advising to plan ahead and take the coach.

If you are planning on travelling from Tralee to Limerick, customers should note that the No 13 Tralee-Limerick service provides early morning departure times. The first service departs Tralee Bus Station at 06.15am and departs every two hours from 09.00am up until 17.00pm and then every hour until 19.00pm.

The Expressway No 13 service is a Monday to Sunday service and will be very useful for customers travelling home from Tralee to Limerick this Christmas. This service offers more choice and availability providing customers with a faster, more convenient service from Tralee to Limerick with a journey time of 2 hours and 5 minutes. For any last minute shopping customers should be advised that the Bus Station is a five minute walk to the main shopping street in Limerick and all services on route drop off and pick up at the Crescent Shopping centre.

The Tralee-Limerick route operates through major population centres such as Listowel, Abbeyfeale, Newcastlewest, Adare and Limerick and a number of towns along the way.

“Customers travelling home this Christmas can easily travel between Tralee and Limerick on the Expressway No 13 service. Over the Christmas period there are a lot more cars on the road leading to driver frustration and traffic congestion. Customers can enjoy the comfort and convenience of travelling home this Christmas using our high-quality fleet,” said Miriam Flynn, Regional Manager, South-West, Bus Éireann.
