I normally don't review bus/train stations in my home city but something needs to be done about the grubby bathrooms in Busaras! I only use this station once every couple of months as I usually catch the train from Connolly Station just across the road from here... I don't expect amazing bathrooms in a station but I expect basic standards... More

This is hands down one of the most disgusting and low maintenance places I've ever come across, from missing information leaflets to an outdated and falling down interior to one of the most horrendously foul smells I've ever come across in the male toilets. A lot of people should be sacked for the way this building looks and smells, zero... More

I believe this is a listed building and very little work can be done to it. However basic cleaning would be nice the toilets are so disgusting I felt ill after using them. If you stand and look into any of the corners there is no way that they have been touched by any cleaning apparatus for many years. No... More

Got quite upset this morning in busaras after a bus driver was extremely ignorant and unhelpful. However a supervisor named Aaron noticed i was stressed out and went completely out of his way to help me. He changed my experience in busaras this morning from really bad to really very pleasant. I hope he is really appreciated. I have used... More

Previously reviewed this using lots of rude language, deservedly. But it was shot down. To summarise, compared to the much more modern, cleaner and throughly more lovely Connolly station, this place is a travesty. The toilets. They're like a third world toilet. Use it to pass through, do not hang around here.

Horrible place to be in, looks like it's going to fall apart anytime and on top of that, I go to buy a ticket to a place past Galway (everyone is directing me to Busaras) and the clerk basically stares at me with no solution even telling me "that's my problem". Worst customer service I have ever seen. I wouldn't... More
