Save on your holiday costs by travelling to Belfast with Bus Éireann

Dublin holidaymakers travelling to Belfast can save money on their holiday costs by using Bus Éireann’s X1 Expressway coach service. The service is a 24 hour service with 24 departures daily from Dublin to Belfast and has a journey time of 2 hours and 25 minutes.

Travelling by Bus Éireann means that families don’t have to worry about driving early in the morning or late in the evening or about fuel costs, parking or toll charges.

The service operates from Dublin city centre direct to Dublin Airport and then goes on the N1 motorway serving Newry, Banbridge, Spucefield and Belfast.

Customers should be aware that buses depart from Dublin (Busáras) to Belfast every hour from 01:00 until 24:00. Return buses from Belfast (Europa Bus Centre) to Dublin depart every hour from 01:00 until 24:00.

Customers travelling to Belfast can also get 10% off entry to the fantastic Titanic Exhibition and free travel on the Metro 26C bus service from Wellington Place in Belfast city centre to the Exhibition when they show their Bus Éireann ticket. 

Last year, Bus Éireann added four new double-deck vehicles to its Dublin city-Dublin Airport-Belfast service providing customers with free Wi-Fi, tables, charging points and 20% extra legroom.

All double-deck coaches are equipped with free Wi-Fi and selected seats have power sockets and ISOFIX attachment points for child safety making it easier for families to travel.

The coaches are over 14m long and feature 20% more legroom than a standard coach, have two tables downstairs and can carry 82 passengers.   

All coaches are wheelchair accessible and meet the highest EU emission standards.

“Travelling by Bus Éireann to or from Belfast is the most cost effective way to begin or end your holidays this summer. Customers using the X1 service, can sit back, relax and enjoy getting to their destination in plenty of time,” said Joe Kenny, Regional Manager, East, Bus Éireann.
