Travelling to ATU Campuses

Ireland has three main international airports: Dublin, Shannon & Cork.

Dublin airport is the most popular flight destination for incoming students as it has direct links with the major hubs of Abu Dhabi, Amsterdam, Frankfurt, London, New York and Paris.

The ATU campuses in Galway and Mayo are spread out over four campuses

  1. ATU Galway City, Dublin Road campus

Most international students arrive in Ireland through either Dublin or Shannon Airports.

Dublin Airport is by far the largest airport in the country with the most international connections. It has daily services to the major European cities including the hub airports of London, Paris, Frankfurt, Amsterdam, Madrid and Istanbul.

It also has daily services to the east and west coast of the USA and some Canadian cities. Both Dubai and Abu Dhabi are also connected to Dublin Airport on a daily basis. Ethiopian Airlines offers frequent connection service from Addis Ababa to the USA via Dublin Airport, while Shannon Airport has direct daily services to London and to the USA.

Both airports offer bus services directly to Galway City. The bus is not expensive, modern, clean and very safe. The journey from Dublin Airport to Galway city is approximately 3 hours and Shannon Airport to Galway city is approximately 2 hours.
