    • Hello Methona. This website is run by Monaghan County Council. It’s just a place which pulls together the information on the various transport providers in the county. You will find on the website the contact information for the service provider which is running the hospital bus service. Your best bet is to give them a ring and have a wee chat. That way you will be sure that the information you are given is up to date, as sometimes services are changed and it takes a while for word to filter back to us to make changes to this website.

  2. I have robotic surgery in St Vincent’s hospital next month and want to go down the night before what would your last bus be on a Tues evening that would pass through or close to Carrickmacross ? Thanks

    • Hello Kevin
      The HSE-run hospital buses run in the mornings, aiming to get patients to their appointments on that day.
      If you want to travel up the evening before, you are best to look at either Bus Eireann or a private operator.
      Good luck with your surgery 🙂

    • Hello Geraldine
      Local Link runs a daily bus service for people with hospital appointments in Dublin. Phone Padraic to find out times 047 51840

      Alternatively, you could travel by ordinary bus from Carrick to Dublin Airport, then take a 16 or 16c from bus stop 7347 at Terminal 1 across to Beaumont Rd. There’s a bus every 20 mins and the journey takes about 15 mins. Get off at Stop 233. You will then have to walk about 1.5km (20 mins) to reach the hospital.

      You could also opt to go in to the city centre, and take a 14 or 27B out from in front of Liberty Hall (stop 300). They will drop you less than 200m from Beaumont hospital (2 minute walk) at stop 254
