Explore the Wild Atlantic Way with Bus Éireann’s new enhanced 350 summer service from May until the end of October
The iconic Wild Atlantic Way route will be a busy attraction this summer, and what better way to travel it than Bus Éireann’s extended 350 coastal service.
Route 350 - which serves a section of the Wild Atlantic Way from Ennis to Galway via Lahinch, the Cliffs of Moher, Doolin and Ballyvaughan will be extended for a further two months, giving both Irish and international visitors extra time to travel along the rugged, unspoilt west coast of Ireland.
The Wild Atlantic Way is the world’s largest defined coastal touring route, with stunning scenery, beautiful beaches and majestic cliffs.
Customers travelling on the new enhanced Route 350 service can sit back, relax and enjoy the invigorating experience of panoramic views, with the advantage of being driven to a selection of beautiful destinations.
Bus Éireann’s great value Open Road Ticket, at only €60, caters for three days unlimited travel out of six consecutive days, on our nationwide network of services across Ireland. The Open Road hop-on-hop-off pass is available to purchase at www.buseireann.ie or in our travel centres nationwide.
The enhanced summer timetable enhancements include:
- Increased Sunday service
- Improved clock face frequency of services
- Daily services from Galway to Ennis via Doolin, the Cliffs of Moher and the Burren
- Improved interchange options for customers at Galway Bus/Rail Station
- Improved interchange options for customers at Ennis Bus/Rail Station
Brian Connolly, Bus Éireann Regional Manager West, said the extension of the route was testament to its popularity:
“Customer journeys on the 350 have jumped by over 30% in the last two years. As more people become familiar with the Wild Atlantic Way, the route has grown significantly.
As a result we are delighted to extend the period of operation from May to October, boost the Sunday service and provide more regular daily services and improved interchanges,” he said.
The Wild Atlantic Way has been an extremely successful Fáilte Ireland initiative. The Route 350 Clare Coast route provides the perfect opportunity for both tourists and domestic visitors to sample one of the top trails along that route, from Ennis to Galway via a host of stunning seaside locations and popular towns.
Buses are an excellent way of getting around the Wild Atlantic Way, customers can sit back and enjoy the hidden gems that the wilds of the west have to offer.
Bus Éireann encourages local customers to try out the Route 350 summer service, to savour a great trip.
