TFI Local Link Waterford launches new bus service connecting Youghal and Dungarvan
Our new 357 bus service will commence on Monday 11th of September 2023. This new route is part of the Connecting Ireland Rural Mobility Plan which is a major national public transport initiative developed and funded by the National Transport Authority (NTA) as part of the Transport for Ireland (TFI) Network. Route 357 will operate six daily return services a day, seven days a week. The new route will provide late evening and peak-time services for commuters and improved connectivity to Davitt’s Quay. The route from Youghal to Dungarvan will also offer enhanced connectivity to villages and areas such as Kinsalebeg, Clashmore, Aglish, Villierstown and Dungarvan. The service will also improve connectivity to colleges in the area, regional bus services and the wider TFI Network.
Speaking ahead of the launch, TFI Local Link Waterford General Manager James O’ Donoghue, said “We are delighted to announce the commencement of our new 357 service from Youghal to Dungarvan. “This is the latest in a series of service enhancements under the Connecting Ireland programme which open up opportunities not only for local residents to make connections for employment, health, education and recreational purposes, but also allows visitors to access the many areas of historic interest and natural beauty along the River Blackwater from Clashmore to Villierstown. This is also the first time that a regular bus service will now be available to residents in the areas served to connect to and beyond Youghal and Dungarvan, as well as allowing people to choose to travel using a more sustainable form of transport”.

Please note that due to the holding of the Tallow Horse Fair on Monday 4th September we have reluctantly decided to cancel services to and from Tallow on Monday 4th September. We have looked at every possible alternative, including rerouting services, as well as contacting Waterford City and County Council and the Gardaí, but cannot find a safe alternative way of picking up and dropping off passengers. We would also ask that passengers would note that there is no committee in place that are responsible for the running of the event, and therefore nobody for us to liaise with.
Local Link Waterford truly regret that we will be unable to provide services to our many customers in Tallow who use our services on a daily basis, and we will be in contact with the Gardaí with a view to getting services back into Tallow as soon as the roads are open.
Our sincere apologies to our passengers for this unavoidable inconvenience. Our 363 service to Dungarvan will operate as per our timetable to and from Lismore, and our 364 service to Fermoy to and from Curraglass, until such time as the roads are open. We will post notices here and on social media as soon as we have confirmed with the Gardaí that the roads are open.
