Public Transport Changes for the June Bank Holiday 2020

This Bank Holiday weekend, continue to follow the government’s travel restrictions – staying within 5km of your home, unless for essential journeys. If you need to take public transport this weekend, remember that it’s running with reduced capacity to allow for social distancing.

Schedules for Irish Rail, Luas, Bus Éireann, Dublin Bus and Go Ahead are all slightly different this weekend, so we’ve laid it out bare for you below! Remember – we’ll  be sharing live travel information throughout the weekend at the AA Roadwatch Newsroom.
