    Info in this link.

    You would need to book a connecting bus from roscrea to Dublin.

    National Express (UK bus company) has a coach service from Dublin Ferry Port (Irish Ferries) to Birmingham coach station....

    Check out your local bus operators for someone who will get you to Dubln port. Or just get a bus to Dublin and catch a local bus to the ferry terminal.

    The recently re-launched bus Eireann eurolines service stops in Birmingham, you would still need to make your own way to busaras from Roscrea however.

    Does it have to be a coach? The train would be better, Its about £40

    OR take train and boat. There is a special fare that covers your train fare from Tipp all the way to Birmingham & includes boat. explains it all. Go to the page "London to Dublin and Ireland" Scroll down to "How to buy Tickets in Ireland". (I can't include the links as I have only just registered on this site and it doesn't allow me to put links in posts).

    • Cost of SailRail tickets bought in Ireland: Bought at least one day before travel, Dublin to London costs €60, Dublin to Birmingham or Leeds costs €54, Dublin to Liverpool or Manchester costs €53. Cork, Limerick or Galway to London costs €80.
    • Fares in euros for tickets bought in Ireland can be found using the journey planner at Note that tickets bought in Ireland are all of the walk up type, a reservation is needed (and included) on the ferry, but no seat reservation is required on British trains, you can take any suitable connecting train you like once in Britain, although no stopovers are allowed.

    Worth looking at the train. Ferry from Dublin departs at 08:05, arrives Holyhead 11:30, train departs 11:48, arrives Birmingham New Street 15:33. That's a direct train, there are no changes.
