Hi davida, no need to think that this is complicated. AARoadwatch would have given you good instructions as how to get onto the M50 from the airport and then onto the M4/M6 (the Galway road). Once you get to Galway you'll be on quite a few roundabouts, just follow the signs for the N59 (Clifden, Oughterard). Once you're on the N59 you go as far as Clifden and then turn onto the R341 which will take you to Ballyconneely.

Just make sure not to miss the turn-off from the M4 to the M6 just beyond Kinnegad.

Stop worrying, you'll be grand! Have a lovely holiday and I hope the weather will be kind to you!

Hello,

My daughter and I are going to land in Dublin on September 17th, early morning around 8:00. What public transportation would be available to get us to Clifden. We will NOT be driving.

Thank you.

*~*~*~We are so excited to come to Ireland.

You will have to get one of the Bus's to Galway (Go Bus or Citylink express rather than Buseireann) and then change for Clifden (Citylink or Buseireann). Have you got accommodation sorted in Clifden because its Art's week?

Thank you very much. I saw your tractor and thought you would drive us there. {Just joking} We do have a place already, we are staying the whole week and are so so excited. Always wanted to go. Alot of family names to try and check out. Denny, Jamieson, Casey, Kush {?sp}. We will be doing some geneaology research here at the Irish Heritage Center in Chicago before we come.

You are obviously from there. Give me any tips and ideas you have.

Thank you for the transportation info.

Later............

Don't know if the old Massy would get me to Clifden let alone with passengers. I'm just an adopted son over in Clifden but If I can offer any help I will be happy to try, Most common name in town would probably be Joyce, but James Casey is a local Veterinarian and John Casey is the name of the Lifeboat Doctor.

(Denny are known for Sausages and Jamesons for whiskey.)
