Galway city is served by train services from Dublin (via Midlands and East Galway), as well as public and private bus services from all parts of Ireland. The normal drop-off point for all these services is Galway city centre (in or near Eyre Square), though some of the private bus services will drop-off near NUI Galway if so requested (University Road or Newcastle Road).
From Galway city centre, you can take a bus or taxi to NUI Galway. If taking a taxi, go to the rank at the top of Eyre Square and ask for Quad in NUI Galway, to be dropped inside the main entrance of the University.
If taking a bus, take the No. 4 Bus Éireann service to Newcastle from Eyre Square – there are different bus stops for each of the services, so make sure you are at the right stop! Also, each service goes in both directions from the city centre (In the case of No. 4; West: Newcastle and East: Merlin Park), so make sure you are heading to Newcastle, not Merlin Park.
