Fantastic service to and from Dublin. Great drop off in Nassau street. Very central and pick up in Abbey street is super. Ideal for tourists who would like to stay in a more rural area and visit dublin for twenty euro return. Carrickmacross is only a little more than an hour away and a great place to see and stay...

Very reasonable cost, comfortable coach, and prompt departures. Takes about 1 1/2 hours to go from Dublin to Carrickmacross. Nice ride in daylight, as the route is on secondary roads.

This is a well run bus service, gets you comfortably to Dublin in the fastest time possible. Fares are reasonable. Carrickmacross would be lost without it!

We got the day trip to Dublin, good fast service and frequent departures and return times. The coach was spotless, the driver very pleasant and a very smooth journey of just over an hour from Carrickmacross to Dublin city centre. Will use again, would be handy for the airport.

Coaches are new and always clean. Drivers are always friendly. This is a quick service to Dublin when going via my and port tunnel. Going by slane is a little bit longer as the bus is constantly stopping at random stops to let one person off. So it does get a little annoying but you get home eventually. Great service... More

Through Abbey Tours, we were linked to Collins Coaches to take us for a nine-day tour of Ireland. There were eight of us in a small bus that could carry 15. We gave the driver, Shay Flynn, our itinerary of the attractions we wanted to visit. Abbey Tours suggested some changes, but allowed us to opt out of certain hotels... More
