Galway to Shannon

Hi, I'm planning a trip for sept using cie tours. We need to get back to Shannon from Galway the evening before our tour ends to catch an 0830 flight the next morning back to the states. What is he best way to do this? Is there a train or bus that runs between Galway and Shannon?

Thanks for any help!!

The 51 or X51 bus from Galway to the Airport

There is no train service from Galway to Shannon.

As Tony has suggested, you can get the bus direct to the airport.

The service runs hourly and is definitely the best way to travel between Galway and Shannon Airport.

The bus you need will be the Cork bus and is number 51, as far as I know the 51X does not stop in Shannon.

Tony has given you the link for the timetable.

Sorry the X51 is just aimed at the Uni run so not for Shannon.
