These pages are dedicated to a quick overview of rail and bus transport on the island of Ireland. It is not meant to be a comprehensive guide, but merely a quick source of information.
Public transport in both Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland are provided by state-owned companies that own the respective bus and train operators. They are relatively affordable when compared to Great Britain, but being state run monopolies there really isn’t any need to set prices in response to competition, so on some sectors the price can be relatively expensive.

**Travelling between Northern Ireland and the Republic does not involve passport checks (at the moment), but there have been cases where border police stop buses for a quick inspection so bring your passports nonetheless.**
***Also, Northern Ireland uses the Pound Sterling (GBP) as it is part of the UK, whereas the Republic of Ireland uses the Euro (EUR)***
