Christmas Coach Travel from the UK to Ireland Returns for First Time Since 2019

Irish people travelling home from the UK for Christmas can avoid airport queues, as well as lower their carbon footprint and save money, by travelling on the Expressway Eurolines route from London and Birmingham to Dublin city centre.

Expressway Eurolines is operated by Bus Éireann, Ireland’s national bus company.

The service was relaunched in July 2022 following the Covid pandemic, and this is the first Christmas since 2019, UK-based travellers have the option of coach and ferry travel to Ireland for the holidays.

Tickets cost just €52 one-way, or €95 return and can be purchased by expressway.ie, booking Origin London and Destination Dublin (Busáras).

Expressway Eurolines operates on top-end coaches and crosses the Irish Sea on Irish Ferries’ ‘Ulysses’ ship. Passengers make the overnight journey in comfort and arrive early the next morning in Dublin city centre, avoiding the hassle of airport queues, with convenient connections for any onward bus travel to the rest of Ireland.

The last service before Christmas operates on Friday 23 December, arriving in Dublin city on Christmas Eve morning.
