Galway Suburban Rail
Galway Suburban Rail (Irish: Iarnród Bruachbhailteach na Gaillimhe) is a suburban rail service operating on the railway line east of Galway. The suburban rail is used on the Galway-Dublin line and the Galway-Limerick line. At present the principal commuter towns is in the catchments of Athenry and Oranmore station.
Commuter services in the Athenry-Galway corridor consist of the following:
- Early morning and late evening services between Athlone and Galway serving the County Galway towns of Ballinasloe, Woodlawn and Attymon
- Morning and evening Intercity service originating from Limerick serving the County Galway towns of Gort, Ardrahan and Craughwell
- Evening services which continue to Athlone and Heuston Station, Dublin
Between these routes there are 14 services in each direction each weekday in this section, with 11 services from Galway and 10 services from Athenry on Sundays.
Irish rail are hoping to increase Galway commuter services with a service from Galway to Athenry every 15 minutes (this likely includes services to Dublin and Limerick) and a 2nd platform at Oranmore although this is subject to a new timetable.
