Thanks Gaelflyer.

However, Kavanagh's Busses already do the same service and do it very well.

This is just another example of Bus Eireann trying to squeeze out private bus services


And less people would have to do the journey if certain people whose names begin with MOL didn't throw hissy fits and pull their planes out of Shannon!!

Lol Bean, how right you are about our friend Mr O'Leary:-))

I am delighted that Aer Lingus/Aer Arann have taken up the Edinburgh route that our friend pulled out of.

We could do with a few more routes out of Shannon though, I will fly out of Dublin only as a last resort.

Hi Gael,

Thank you for the info. I would like to use the Bus to the Airport from Limerick on Sun 31 May. The Bus company drops off at the Airport at Atrium Road.

Is this Rd. inside the airport, close to the terminals? I'm flying out of terminal 2 and I need to know how far I have to walk. How long would it take?

Thank you
