How to travel from Kenmare to Shannon at night


we are spending some days in Kenmare and my friend has to take the flight at 10h10 in the morning from Shannon. I already checked the busses, there is only one from Killarney at 18h30 in the evening, so he would have to spend the whole night at the airport. Are there any other bus services or maybe night-lines to get to Shannon?

Thanks for your help!!

No nightlines from Kenmare to Shannon.

It takes over 3 hours to get from Kenmare to Shannon and check in is a minimum of 1 hour beforehand for European flights, 2-3 hours for Transatlantic flights.

That means 10h10 less 4.5 to 6.5 hours.

The alternative would be to drive to Bantry and see if you can get a later bus from Bantry to Cork City, then get another bus from Cork to Limerick and another bus from Limerick to Shannon.

I really don't think you are going to get the type of answer you want from your explorations.

Possibly best to get to Limerick and spend the night there then get the local 343 service to Shannon (takes 45mins) starts at 5am then 6 & 7 am
