Travel Limerick-Galway in Just 80 Minutes with High Frequency X51 Express Service from Bus Éireann
Bus Éireann’s high frequency X51 Express service between Limerick and Galway has just got even quicker with the opening of the Crusheen to Gort Motorway. From Monday 22nd November 2010, X51 services will use the Motorway and Gort by-pass to further cut journey times between the two cities to only 80 minutes each way.
The X51 Limerick-Galway provides the fastest coach connection between Limerick and Galway and some services will also operate to and from UL.
“There has already been great customer reaction to the X51 and the further cut in travelling time makes the X51 the ideal way to travel between Limerick and Galway. We would hope that these new services will help promote Limerick as a great destination to visit for business, shopping, days out or study,” said Miriam Flynn, Regional Manager, South West, Bus Éireann.
From Limerick Bus Station, the X51 operates up to 9 times daily departing Limerick at 9.15, 10.15, 11.15, 12.15, 13.15, 14.15, 15.15, 16.15, 17.15.

All X51 services pick-up and set down on request at GMIT. There will also be X51 services from UL on Fridays only during college terms. These will operate from UL at 12.50, 14.50, and 16.50. X51 services will operate from Galway to UL on Sundays only during college terms at 16.00, 17.00, and 18.00. All services to and from UL will pick-up and set down on request at LIT.
