Doolin is located on the west
coast of Ireland south of Galway. Since Doolin is a
rural town, there is no train access directly to Doolin.
Arriving via car or bus are the best options to get
directly to Doolin.
Aside from renting a car, Bus
Eireann (the Irish Bus Service) is the best way to
get to Doolin.
If you plan using the bus for transportation between
3 or 4 cities, you can take advantage of the Irish Rover,
Irish Rambler or Emerald Card passes. These travel passes
offer a range of options from 3-day travel within 8
consecutive days to 15-day travel within 30 consecutive
days. It's a great way to save yourself some money.
I've used the Irish Ramber 3-day pass. We traveled
from Dublin to Donegal; Donegal to Doolin via Galway;
and Doolin to Limerick.
Currently the price for a 3-day passtraveling
within consecutive 8 dayswill run you €45
(about $42 USD).
Depending on were and when you are traveling, you might
be able to save yourself some money. Check the National
Fares (direct fares) between two cities and see
what it will add up to. Then compare that with the bus
descriptions from Bus Eireann passes
