Although this building has been mentioned in other Galway related threads, I thought it was worth a mention in its own right. I passed through here last night and to say that I was impressed by the place would be an understatement. The spacious interior is a far cry from the old Fair Green car park that generations of Galweigans used to drown in while waiting for a bus to Ballinasloe.
The terminal is far superior to the nearby Bus Eireann and Rail Station.
In terms of design, it even surpasses the airport.
At a time when buses are seen as the last resort in travel, Galway Coach Station attempts to give a reasonable first impression at the start of the journey out of town or a good impression to first time visitors who arrive in Galway by bus.
