    Kinda but youd be as quick walking. Its not a far walk maybe 15 mins if you walk slowly. Mrs O'B will be along shortly with the exact route.

    It’s a scenic walk from that hotel to town, get your self a taxi up to summer garden.

    Ware a mask & wash your hands

    402-Seacrest goes to the Summer Garden.

    Continental is on the 401 route into town. Runs every 20 mins.

    Google maps is your friend - there is a public transport option for directions and you'll see where the bus stops are too.

    Will the 401 outbound not leave them with a few mins walk?

    Yeah if you get any bus to Salthill, there's a walkway there just past the yellow diving tower at Blackrock. Less than ten mins walk.

    So from city centre to Seashore caravan park would 401 or 402 be better

    402 brings you directly to caravan park
    401 brings you a ten minute coastal walk away

    Yes - but it's a 1km walk VS straight across the road. And that's 1km along the road, the coastal pathway is a lot nicer walk, but is longer, and has the challenge of finding your way.

    For a visitor who has no idea where they are, I usually recommend the closest option.

    But the pathway brings you right there, there IS nowhere else to go? :)
    I mean the path from the diving board that runs between the golf course and the sea. It actually drops you right at the side of the Summer Garden. You can see the tents, and you just turn the corner to the entrance.
    (also I get 1k on costal path but longer via the road)
