Its about 200km (125 miles) from Donegal Town to Galway City Centre.

Assuming travelling at an average pace of 70kph (<45mph) you would need to allow about 3 hours to do the journey. Thats not allowing for a stop on the way, so all stops will be extra.

Most of the busy towns are by-passed along the route, Ballyshannon, Bundoran, Sligo, Tubbercurry, Knock and Tuam along the N17. You also have the advantage of travelling early in the morning and should avoid the hectic traffic in Galway itself by the time you get there in mid-morning.

Hope this is of help to you.
