The airport is located only 6 km from Galway's city center and has a wide variety of ground transportation options available for travelers. Visitors can rent a car at the airport, take a bus, or hire a taxi to take them into the city. Browse the Ireland West Airport (NOC), Knock site.

If you are coming to Galway by car from another part of Ireland maps of the city are available at most hotels and online.
Note that if you are travelling to Dublin from Galway the last train leaves Galway at 18.05. weekdays and 18.15 on Sundays.
Suggest that you do not use Budget Rent a Car at Knock Airport as they provided a car that looked destined for the scrap-yard. They may be cheaper but there cars are a disgrace!
