Irish Citylink launches new brand and Galway-Dublin Airport service


Irish Citylink, one of Ireland's largest independent Coach Operators, today (Monday, 29 April 2013) announced the launch of a new Airport Direct coach service between Galway and Dublin Airport.

Operating under a newly launched brand, eireagle.com, the services will bypass Dublin City and deliver time savings for travellers of up to 30 minutes on journeys between Dublin Airport and Galway Coach Station and 15 minutes on journeys in the opposite direction.

Launching this Wednesday (1st May, 2013), the 8 daily eireagle.com services will be in addition to Irish Citylink’s existing Express Services between Galway and Dublin City & Airport.

The eireagle.com services will be operated by a fleet of luxury coaches which provide passengers with free Wi-Fi, onboard toilet facilities, air conditioning, reclining seats and spacious legroom.

“These new services will shorten journeys between Galway and Dublin Airport to just 2 hours and 30 minutes,” explained David Conway, Business Operations Manager, Irish Citylink. He explained: “Coaches will operate between Galway and Dublin Airport using the M6 and M50 motorways and will not go through Dublin City, offering a more comfortable, direct and quicker journey time.”

Promotional fares of €25 return are available for May by booking in advance on www.eireagle.com.
