Default Any Irish locals have some advice?

I'm looking to spend a night and day in Doolin, Ireland and I want to take a bus or something in the evening to get to Cashel and Cahir but I can't find bus schedules that leave Doolin much less go that direction. Any help?

I'm not an Irish local, but I used this bus company for trips around Ireland.

You can either print out the timetables or do journey planner and I think that will help you out.

Bus Eireann is pretty much it for Irish bus services, they have pretty comprehensive coverage of the country. Other than that it's probably organised tours or thumbing.

Is thumbing in Ireland safe?

I've never had any problems. Have only heard one horror story of someone getting robbed and dumbed out in the middle of nowhere.
