For those without use of a rental car, there are a few options listed below that can help get you where you need to go on the Renvyle Peninsula:
Alumni with rental cars are encouraged to help their fellow reunion attendees and offer a lift to those in need. A list of alumni willing to provide lifts will be shared at the reunion.
Local resident Daniel Sammon has a 7-passenger van and is offering transportation for a fee. Contact Daniel directly at 087 260 2717 for information.
If you are staying at the Renvyle House, they offer a free shuttle to/from Tullycross. Ask the hotel staff for details.

A van from Connemara Coaches has been hired to transport people home from the pubs each evening Thursday through Saturday from 10:30 - 11:30 p.m. This will be a rather informal process for those that need a lift, so be prepared to be flexible! And please remember to tip the driver!
