COVID-19 Update

Dear Customers,

We hope you and your families are keeping well during these difficult times.

Over the last weekend, the government released the roadmap for reopening the country.

Unfortunately due to the continued restrictions on public transport, Dublin Coach will not be in a position to resume operations in the coming weeks.

As restrictions begin to ease throughout the roadmap, we will reassess the landscape and provide a further update then.

For our TaxSaver customers, you will be accommodated in line with NTA guidelines when we reopen.     

Please continue to stay safe and adhere to the government guidelines.

Suspension of Services due to COVID-19

Dear Customers,

In the current environment, we all have to be fully aware of our responsibilities in relation to public health and wellbeing. Given the ever changing environment, it is impossible for anyone to predict the immediate effects and what changes the situation may bring.

As the safety and the wellbeing of our loyal customers and staff is our main priority, we will suspend the operation of all services effective immediately from tonight (March 16th) @ 23:59 until further notice. No services will run from March 17th onwards. On behalf of everyone at Dublin Coach, we are truly sorry for any inconvenience the Covid-19 crisis may be causing you and your family.

For all customers who booked their tickets online and were due to travel in the coming weeks, we have waived our "Change my booking" fees.

It is with a heavy heart we are implementing these measures. However we are confident it is the right decision in order to safeguard our customers’ and drivers’ health, which is of paramount importance to us at these unprecedented and difficult times. Please be careful over the coming weeks and stay safe.

Customers will be updated through our website and social media platforms. Please contact us by email on with any queries.

We hope to see everyone on board again in the near future.

COVID-19 Information

The health & safety of both our customers and staff is important to Dublin Coach. We are all following public health instructions issued by the relevant authorities in relation to the coronavirus COVID-19. The guidelines can be viewed here.
