Latest news from Eurolines - New London-Birmingham-Dublin coach service

Posted in New coach services

A few days ago we informed you about Euroline’s new direct connection between Belfast and Blackpool, and today we are going to tell you about a new route. Eurolines has just added a new temporary route from London and Birmingham to Dublin.

Now you have got an additional coach link from the UK to Ireland. You can travel from London and Birmingham to Dublin from £62 return this summer with a combined Eurolines and Irish Ferries service. Eurolines has added additional coach and ferry day services from London and Birmingham to Dublin. The new coach link runs until the 6 September 2012 only. That is an extra service which complements the international coach company's existing night-time services on the route. The new service departs London (Victoria) at 6:30am and Birmingham at 9:00am, arriving in Dublin (Busaras) at 6:10pm. Outbound journey: The additional Eurolines service departs from Dublin’s bus station (Busaras) at 7:00am, and arrive in Birmingham coach station (Digbeth) at 3:30pm and London Victoria Coach Station at 7:00pm. The crossing takes place onboard one of the largest car ferries in the world, the Irish Ferries "Ulysses". More info about the ferry can be found here:

So if you are going to travel with Eurolines to Dublin then you'll be pleased hearing that the coaches are equipped with some extra facilities for passengers. The carrier has re-built the vehicles 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 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.

This new service is not exclusively designed for people travelling between London, Birmingham and Dublin. You can travel from outside these cities with National Express in the UK and Bus Eireann in Ireland to the nearest interchange point. You can book as one combined ticket at using the journey planner or for further information visit our dedicated page

Reservations may also be made at Eurolines or National Express.

I use bus services only. It does take longer, but with a good book in hand that's not a problem. I can say that direct services to Prague or Wien are superb I have used those only. Clean buses, nice personnel, sometimes two seats just for myself :) No hassle with luggage limits. It works 4 me.
