Is there a shuttle from Galway to Shannon?

I am staying at Eyre Square and need to get to Shannon airport for a 9:00 flight. The bus leaves too late to make the flight. Is there any other transport besides taxi? And if not, could someone recommend a taxi service with prices? Thanks.

Far better to stay closer to the Airport. Galway is quoted at €125 by airport cab

I stayed right at the airport the night before. Better to relax then to worry if you are going to make your flight in the morning.

Frank..The first bus out of Galway is 7am wont get to the airport until 1 hour 10 minutes before the flight, fine for a short haul EU no good for a Transatlantic. Then you have to hope it runs!

Hi everyone! I'm back from my trip and I took the shuttle bus at 6 pm to Shannon and got a taxi from there to Oak Wood Arms Hotel to spend the night. I arranged with the taxi driver to pick me up in the morning and it all worked out well. Thanks all for your advice!

It is a bit of a pain really, I know they do not get much call but the Airport services on Public transport outside Dublin leave a lot to be desired, Pleased you managed to sort things out.
