Hiya folks, need last min help, going out to a surprise party tonight and have to be in Headford between 6 and 8 (can't go earlier).
Bus Eireann leaves too early or too late. Is there a private coach, say to Ballina, leaving 6ish - I vaguely remember a friend getting one..
Any ideas?
Thanks in advance!

Thanks! I don't know Headford well, is Cambells easy enough to find?

It's not really in Headford, you'd want to get off at Cloughanover cross, cross the road and 200m off the main road. You'll be able to see it from the cross.

Trading Post Texaco station is a good landmark. You need to get off bus on top of hill before that. Cross the road then for Campbells - a few yards down a side road.

Check out buseireann.ie - Journey Planner option - appears to be a few buses from Galway to Headford this evening.

Goin there too! Unfortunately can't offer you lift as full. Are you sure there's no-one you know driving there?

Burke's bus is the one you want, leaves the Skeff at 5.30 but you used to be able to flag it down at the bus stop in front of Curry's too. OP there's a huge amount of people who drive out through Headford on their way home from work ask around where you work you could get a lift fairly handy.

If you're on the bus sit on the right hand side and watch out for a beige/yellow building called "Cloughanover Community Centre" there's a windy narrow section of road just before it and the road widens significantly at it. When you pass the community centre get up and go to the front of the bus, by the time you get there you'll be passing over the top of a hill with a Shrine to Our Lady on your left and a petrol station beyond it. The Tavern is on your right when these are on your left. Can't miss it.

Alternatively you can just tell the bus driver you want to get off at the Shrine in Cloughanover.

Gardaí are still at the scene and the Headford Road will remain closed to traffic until further notice. Diversions are in place but motorists are asked to avoid the area.


might be as well off going out the tuam road to Clare Galway and cutting across.

That will cause traffic chaos. Wrong evening to be going to Headford.
