Use the NTA journey planner at:
http://www.journeyplanner.transportforireland.ie/

There are full maps there too.

The 409 operates along the Dublin Road, and the 403 from Ballybane Road to Parkmore roundabout.

I think you'll have to break it down for me a bit guys I'm afraid.
I do not know Galway at all.
The national journey planner seems to be telling me to walk for 40 minutes.
The only way I've found of getting there via bus eireann involves 3 different buses.
I thought there might be a more straightforward way of getting there.

If you are closer to the Dublin Road, get the 409. If you are closer to Wellpark Park / Connolly Avenue / Michael Collins Road get the 403.

However, note that the 409 is twice as frequent. http://www.buseireann.ie/inner.php?id=248##galway

Spot on.

OP, the New Mervue neighbourhood map shows where the routes go:
  • blue for 403 - zoom out a bit to see it
  • green for 409,
  • ignore the red (405) one, it doesn't go to Parkmore

And the Parkmore neighbourhood map may also be helpful - it shows you exactly where the various industrial estates are, and has links to layout maps which show the precise location of the different factories etc.
