Sustainable travel

Maynooth is a major destination in North Kildare, whether you are studying, visiting the historic town or just shopping and there are a few ways to get here depending on how you like to travel.

There are a range of travel options for students and visitors to get here safely, economically and, of course, sustainably. The campus is easily accessible by bus and train and, if you’re local, on foot or by bicycle.
