Hi there

Best bet would be to take the train to Patras which takes around 3 hours then take the ferry direct to Sami ( takes around 3 hours) on Kefalonia's east coast from where it's an hour's drive across the island to Argostoli.

There is a bus service from Athens to Patras as well but I don't know how long that ride would take.

Don't go by train!!! Mad idea!!!

It takes forever and then you have to organise your onwards journey from Patras anyway.

Get the bus from Athens. It will take you on to the ferry and right through to Argostoli. There are several buses a day and they go by various routes: some Patras-Sami, some Killini-Poros and some even by ferry through to Argostoli in the summer. But they will all end up in Argostoli.

The only better way is an Athens - Kef Olympic flight which will cost an arm and a leg for 6 of you.
