7/09/22Half The Fare – Double The Fun For 19-23 Year Olds & Students

We are delighted to announce that we are now in a position to accept Young Adult and Student Leap Cards.

That means you can enjoy 50% off travel with a valid Young Adult (19-23) or Student Leap Card.

This offer applies to full price single, return and multi-journey tickets.

Here are some sample fares which you can enjoy when you book one of our multi journey tickets online:

  • €2.00 per trip from Ennis to Limerick.
  • €2.50 per trip from Kildare to Dublin.
  • €2.00 per trip from Kilkenny to Waterford.

The Young Adult (19-23) Leap Card is available to all 19 to 23 year olds right up to their 24th birthday. 

The Student Leap Card remains available to students in full-time education who are 24 years old and above. 

If you already have a Student Leap Card you’ll get the 50% reduction straight away without having to apply for a new Young Adult Leap Card (19-23). Just use your Student Leap Card as normal.

Dublin Airport

15/08/22Recommended arrival times at Dublin Airport reduced

Dublin Airport has announced a change to its recommended arrival times for passengers departing from the airport.

The previous advice for short haul journeys was to arrive no more than 2.5 hours before your scheduled departure time – and 3.5 hours for long haul travel.

Passengers flying from Dublin Airport are now being advised to arrive 2 hours before departure if travelling on a short haul journey and 3 hours for a long haul flight.

However, the DAA advise you should still allow up to one more hour if you have to check in a bag.

Please ensure you allow enough time when planning your journey with us to the airport.

Book online for our best prices and to guarantee your seat.

Service

1/07/22Route 307 & 308 Suspension

As a result of Routes 307/308 (Limerick City to University of Limerick and Annacotty) being excluded from the 20% Fares reduction scheme announced by Minister Eamon Ryan combined with rising fuel costs these routes will be temporarily suspended with effect from close of business on Friday July 8th.

We hope to resume when normal market conditions are restored. We regret any inconvenience caused.
