Hmmm

I think you are going to have to get a taxi firm to come to pick you up.

Try comparing fares with a local taxi company vs flight costs

Closest rail station is in Hereford. From there you will need to take a bus. Perhaps fly Ryanair to Birmingham and then train to New St and then to Hereford.

Cardiff is also a possibility if you can get a cheap enough flight there on Aer Lingus. Again airport bus to Cardiff then train to Hereford.

You might also consider the sail / rail option with price from Dublin Ferryport to Hereford being £28.50 single or £57 return...and prices don't increase as travel date approaches. The 0845hrs ferry from Dublin will connect to reach Hereford at 1536hrs with no worries about baggage restrictions or cancellations due to volcanic ash. There's only 1 change of trains required, at Shrewsbury, details: http://www.seat61.com/Ireland.htm

Fly into Cardiff, take the X43 bus from Cardiff City Centre to Brecon, then the 39 bus to Hay on Wye details at www. traveline-cymru.org If you are thinking of looking for accommodation in Hay, you may be disappointed, it tends to get fully booked well in advance.
