Sample Irish Fares

Reading time: 3 minutes.

There was a time during my lifetime when virtually all public transport services in Éire were operated by the CIE group of companies but that has changed. Some private operators are winning public service contracts while others successfully operate competing services that have cut down the size of the Bus Éireann Expressway network. All in all, Ireland is changing and that applies to what you find here.

For now, I hope that what you find below will be of use and do feel free to let me know about any additions or updates that you’d like me to make. While I like to keep the information up to date, there may be some changes that miss my notice. For that reason, the date on which a fare was found to be valid is in brackets beside every one that is listed. The listed fares also are those for tickets purchased using card or cash at the time of travel unless otherwise indicated. Where the TFI GO app has been used on a phone, that is shown because those fares generally are cheaper.
