New 183 Bus Service Introduced

A new bus service connecting Wicklow Town to a number of upland villages and visitor attractions in the area, was introduced in April and is proving to be a popular choice.

The timetable also facilitates public transport links such as the train station in Wicklow Town and national bus services offered by Bus Éireann and Wexford Bus.

There are up to 4 daily services scheduled from Sunday to Thursday and 6 on Fridays and Saturdays. To view the timetable, please: CLICK HERE
