Catch This Bus to Lough Key Forest


Catch this Bus to and from Lough Key Forest Park

  • click here for Bards In The Woods events at Lough Key Forest

  • scroll down for map

  • During June, July and August
    This shuttle Bus will run twice daily 
    departing Boyle from the Crescent 
    at 12 noon and again at 5pm; 

    The Crescent is 5 minutes walk from the Boyle Railway Station. Taxi services in Boyle would object to the service running directly from the railway station. There' no permission for that, anyway.

    Next stop Military Road at 12.10, and again later at 5:10 pm, which is handy for pick up from King House, Farmer's Market on Saturdays and connecting to the Dublin to Sligo bus services.

    Bus departures from Lough Key Forest Park for Boyle 
    are at 12.30 and 5.30pm.

    This Shuttle Bus will run 6 days a week Monday through to Saturday, not Sundays, through the months of June, July and August.

    This Shuttle Bus timetable coincides very well with the railway train services to and from both Sligo and Dublin Directions.

    The trains from Sligo direction and heading for Dublin 
    arrive at Boyle at 11:32 am and 6:32 pm

    The trains from Dublin direction and heading for Sligo 
    arrive at Boyle at 11:25 am and 6:25 pm

    For our Bards In The Woods events,
    if you are not camping in Lough Key Forest Park
    I suggest arrive on either 11:25 or 11:32 train
    and depart on the 6:25 or 6:32 train

    Shuttle bus ticket price is only €1 per adult and 50c per child.
