Galway Daily news New timetable adds stops on Galway train services

Ballinasloe will be getting new morning train services starting from next month as Irish Rail introduces timetable changes.

From December 10 onwards, the 6:25am Galway – Heuston train service will add Ballinasloe to its list of stops (Mon – Sat).

The 19:35hrs Dublin Heuston to Galway (Mon – Sat) and 18:45hrs Heuston to Galway (Sunday) will additionally serve Clara, providing a later final service to Clara.

In addition, Irish Rail has said that in 2024 they plan to introduce a later last service from Dublin to Galway, and is investigating the possibility of a later last train from Galway to Dublin.

Details of the new timetable have been announced following public consultation on a draft timetable in September 2023.

A total of 1,652 took part in the public consultation, with 74% of respondents favourable to the new timetable, whether further changes were suggested or not.

The new timetable is now up on Irish Rail’s journey planner, as are Christmas and New Year service arrangements, and bookings are now available also.
