bus passes Ireland/ Nrth Irl?

hi there
I will be travelling the following cities in Ireland and UK in 3 weeks total , and I am wondering if it is wise to buy a bus pass (Irish Rover) or better to buy separate tickets for each journey:

Dublin- Belfast-Derry-Sligo-Westport-Galway-Limerick-Killarney-Cork-Waterford-Kilkenny -Dublin

I hope I get your advise
warm regards, Joan

The easiest way to find out is to use the fareplanner:

busfare.co.uk/cgi-bin/eirean...

linked from the Irish bus website

www.buseireann.ie

You can find the fare for each segment and set that total against the cost of the Irish Rover (a 3-week pass costs a hefty 169 euro; I suspect your point-to-point fares will total less than that)

Perhaps you could purchase individual tickets for the Dublin/Belfast/Derry/Sligo sections of your trip and then use an Open Road Pass, (which is not valid for cross-border travel), e.g. 5 days travel out of ten for €89 for the journeys that only take place in the Republic, i.e. from Sligo back to Dublin?

thank you very much, I see a Irish Rover pass 15 days is 296.00 E!!

You are quite right; I was looking (in error) at the cost of the Open Road pass, which covers e.g 10 days travel out of 20:

Just to inform you all that I took the Aircoach from Dublin to Belfast, for E 10.00 online (yes), and it was a perfect journey ( 2 h)!!

warm regards, Joan
