Hi, there are no trains to Waterville . You can get the train to Killarney and then the bus from there.

Its a long journey and it would certainly be easier driving yourself...

Back in the day, this one was special. Not been down this thirty years though.

A monthly return from Dublin to Waterville with Bus Éireann is €52. (i.e. return any day within a month of the outward journey - it's not necessary to select the date of return travel - just turn up for the bus).

This ticket is not purchasable online but can be bought on the day of travel (or up to five days ahead of the day of travel) from the ticket vending machines in Dublin Busáras.

An alternative to bussing it the whole way is to take the train from Dublin Heuston to Killarney (€44 return seems to be cheapest online return fare) and then bus onwards. Here is the Killarney to Waterville bus timetable:


Hope this info might be of some help.
