Travelling to the Aviva: All You Need To Know
Connacht Rugby are delighted to share details of additional transport options to the Aviva Stadium for our historic URC fixture with Ulster Rugby on the 23rd October (k/o 5.15pm).

Thanks to our partners CityLink, as well as a new agreement with Irish Rail, we are making it as easy as possible for our supporters to travel from the West to our 'Day of Celebration' at the home of Irish Rugby.

Here's all you need to know:

Travelling by bus
Connacht Rugby have come together with our partners CityLink to offer supporters an easy and stress-free way of getting supporters directly to the Aviva Stadium, all at a discounted rate.

A number of buses will depart from The Sportsground on the morning of the game, and will bring fans directly to the Aviva Stadium. These return fares will be priced at a discounted rate of just €20 for those with tickets to the game.

If that's not all, all supporters travelling with Citylink will be automatically entered into a draw to win a signed Connacht Rugby jersey! There'll also be a number of surprises waiting for you when you board.

So head to now to book your sport.

Travelling by train
We are thrilled that Irish Rail have agreed to operate a late train on Saturday evening, giving supporters ample time to make their way back to Heuston Station and onwards back home.

This train will leave Heuston at 20:20 and will serve Athlone, Ballinasloe, Woodlawn, Athenry and Oranmore, before arriving back in Galway at 22:38.

This is in addition to the usual Saturday services that will depart Galway at 06:25, 07:30, 09:30, 11:05 and 13:05, all of which will get you to Dublin in time for the game.

There are also services that will depart from Sligo at 06:40, 09:05, 11:05 and 13:05, as well as trains from Westport at 07:15, 09:45 and 13:10.

The last train from Connolly Station to Sligo as also been pushed back to the latest allowed time of 19:40.

To book your ticket head to, and do so sooner rather than later to ensure your spot.
