Eurolines coach from London to Ireland BOOK TICKET NOW

The UK and Ireland are not far from one another and therefore coach travel is much more common than flying between these two countries. Travelling by coach from Britain to many big towns and cities in Ireland isn’t complicated and compared to planes or trains coach services are usually cheaper. Travel time varies depending on the distance of your destination. The majority of the route is on motorways and the coach journey from London takes approximately 12 hours to Dublin and Waterford, 14 hours to Belfast and 16 hours to Cork, Galway, Sligo or Balina. There isn’t a direct connection from London, which reaches out to all destinations in Ireland. There are several separate routes from London and each of these connections come to a different region in Ireland. Several of the coach services are direct routes, and some aren’t, it means that you have to move to another coach. Before the coach terminates it also stops in a few other big towns and cities in Ireland. Most coach services to Ireland depart from London in the afternoon and arrive to Ireland in the next day. Some of them also stop at Luton, Milton Keynes and Birmingham.

Discover Ireland

In Ireland you can meet with spectacular scenery, fascinating sights that can not be missed. Here are some of them:

  • Cliffs of Moher, these are the cliffs of the Atlantic coast in the west part of Ireland (County Clare), south of Galway. The Cliffs of Moher are 8 km long, reaching to the highest point of 203 meters. At the top there is a stone tower, dating from the nineteenth century - O'Brien's Tower. It is both a tourist attraction and point of view.
  • Newgrande, the most famous of all prehistoric sites in Ireland. This is one of the largest tombs built by man. Newgrange is over 600 years older than the Pyramids of Giza and over 1,000 years than Stonehange.
  • Aran Islands, considered the most romantic place in Ireland.
  • Phoenix Park in Dublin, one of the largest parks in the world.

To purchase tickets online you can do it using the journey planner provided. You can also do it on the Eurolines UK or National Express websites. Simply fill out all fields in the journey planner and follow the instructions to buy a ticket. Early booking is highly recommended, because the Eurolines route between London and Ireland is very popular and the coaches are fully booked on some days. 
Passengers with open date return tickets, must confirm/reserve their return journey with a local Eurolines office at least 4 days before the date they wish to travel. Simply phone Eurolines office in Dublin: (01) 8366 111 or in Belfast for Northern Ireland: (028) 90337002 / 3

There are several simple ways:

  • For most of the connections offered by Eurolines UK you can make a purchase through our journey planner, located on the front page. Just fill in all fields and follow the instructions.
  • To purchase tickets online, you can also do it directly on the Eurolines UK or National Express website. On the websites you'll find all the names of larger and smaller towns, cities and airports. The Eurolines journey planner presented below doesn't show all available stations and stops.

Types of ways in which the ticket is obtained:

  1. e-ticket: a ticket you must print yourself at home,
  2. by collection: in one of the National Express office,
  3. by post: allow 7 working days.

Travelling to Ireland from outside London

National Express together with Eurolines offer nationwide connections to London for a simple add-on price of £15 single or return. Just enter the name of the place from which you start the journey, in the box defining the place of departure. London will automatically be treated as a transfer point. Unfortunately, this option is only available for certain Eurolines connections, so if you won’t be able to purchase a ticket with this option, you'll have to buy two separate tickets.

The journey from London to Ireland and Northern Ireland by Eurolines

Ireland and Northern Ireland are connected with the UK by coach like no other European country - Eurolines provides frequent service between these countries. The Eurolines coach is built to make your journey as comfortable as possible. Each coach has on-board toilet and washroom facilities, reclining seats and air-conditioning as standard.
In addition to standard Eurolines coaches, London to Belfast and Dublin operate Eurolines Plus coaches. These are the same as standard Eurolines except you can enjoy extra leg room, free Wi-Fi and watch DVDs.
Sometimes the coach that picks you up from your departure point has only the final destination displayed in the front windscreen. This is because the majority of Eurolines routes include multiple stops and it would be impractical to display every stop in the front windscreen. Also, you may have booked a journey which requires a change of coach. In both examples, please ask the driver to confirm that his/her coach is going to the destination stated on your ticket.
Eurolines put the safety and comfort of passengers in the first place, so the vehicles are equipped with a large number of safeguards. The operators are using modern vehicles with large panoramic windows and increased legroom. Buy a ticket online
Eurolines coach services to Ireland and Northern Ireland depart from Victoria Coach Station in London which is located close to Victoria Underground and bus stations. Eurolines coaches arrive mostly at the Irish main bus stations. Buy a ticket online now

The carrier provides service to any person who has purchased a ticket. Number of tickets for the designated route is limited to the number of seats. Having a valid ticket guarantees you use of the service (seat on the coach), however it does not reserve any particular place.
Single and return tickets (with the indicated date and time) are for a specific journey, you cannot miss the departure, because you will lose the ticket.
Best to buy tickets well in advance. Eurolines has many discounts for those who decide to purchase tickets in advance. Constant, although a slight discount is provided for youth, elderly and disabled people. Up to 50% discount is provided for children. Unless you get a good promotional fare (mostly the FunFare ticket), return fares are much cheaper than two single fares each way.


  • Before leaving home for your Eurolines service, check you have packed all documents and items needed for your journey, especially your ticket, passport (sometimes it is enough to travel with ID card) and if your journey requires a special visa to enter or transit.
  • Arrive at the Victoria Coach Station in London at least one hour before the departure time, as check-in proceedings are quite lengthy. Customers need to check-in at the Eurolines check-in office located adjacent to Gate 19. Check-in commences one hour before departure and closes 15 minutes before to enable all customers to board and to ensure a prompt departure.
  • Your luggage should be marked tags bearing name, address and telephone. Please weigh your luggage at home.
  • Never accept other persons luggage for transport! Should you notice any luggage left unattended, never touch it! Report the fact to the station’s service staff immediately. Never leave your luggage unattended!
  • When approaching the check-in desk, have your passport and ticket ready. This will streamline the procedure.
  • Border control & customs: When going through security check, place all metal items such as keys, watches, belts with large buckles, mobile phones, walkmans, small change etc in the boxes, and place them on the conveyor belt of the X-ray machine together with your hand luggage & suitcases. It is advisable to place your overcoats in the boxes. This will streamline and facilitate security control.
  • If needed, remember to take your doctor’s certificates.

Check-in at London Victoria Coach Station

A boarding card for each customer and luggage labels will be issued and customers will be advised from which gate their coach will leave.

Sea crossings

Sea crossings are made by ship, to the south of Ireland with Irish Ferries and to Northern Ireland with Stena Line or P&O Ferries, check timetables for specific information.

Megabus, in cooperation with Irish Ferries, provides a coach service between London Victoria Coach Station and Pembroke Dock, with stops at Bristol, Cardiff, Swansea and Carmarthan, before catching a connecting ferry service with Irish Ferries to Rosslare Europort.
This is not a direct route to Ireland, such as pre-existing connections provided by Eurolines. The Megabus coaches will run from London to Pembroke Dock only, then passengers must transfer to the ferry.

Travel insurance

The best way to protect against unexpected accidents is to buy travel insurance. In my opinion, so that the journey is stress-free, you should never travel without travel insurance. You can insure only for travel, it’s possible directly on the Eurolines website, during ticket purchase. You can also insure individually with another insurer. This will be the insurance that will apply during the journey and while in a foreign country. The insurance should cover: loss of cash and goods, cancellation of travel and medical treatment abroad. If you travel several times a year and want to save money, you may want to buy an annual insurance policy. Click here to buy insurance.
