Walked, or took Barge or Coach to Belfast, boat to Glasgow.
Or got a lift on a cart?
Another form of transport in 19th-century Ireland was provided by Charles Bianconi's cars (horse-drawn).

Search for the following scholarly article, about 20 A4 pages ...
The Great Emigration of 1841: Recruitment for New South Wales in British Emigration Fields
John McDonald  & Eric Richards


A summary:

In 1841 the colony of New South Wales offered an unprecedented number of heavily subsidised passages to British emigrants. It sought specific categories, particularly single young women, domestic servants, and agricultural labourers. The colony preferred English and Scottish rural immigrants. New South Wales attracted one fifth of all emigrants from the British Isles in 1841, but its selections were strongly biased towards southern Ireland. ......... The immigration of 1841 was a turning point for Australia: it was the largest recruitment before the gold rushes of the 1850s and already signalled some of the main characteristics of Australian immigration history.

A brief historical background.
"Timelines of the Irish Famine - Ireland before the Famine"
1833 A Royal Commission appointed to enquire into conditions of the poorer classes. Undertook 3 year survey. Estimated over 2 million people were out of work and needing assistance for 30 weeks a year. Commission recommended encouragement of emigration and a scheme of economic development.
1838 Irish Poor Law Act, prompted by fears that unemployed Irish would flood Britain and increase poverty in that country. Irish Poor Law didn't provide outdoor relief or guarantee right to relief.
1840 Industry developing slowly in east of Ireland. Thomas Malthus, economist, commented that rural Ireland was overpopulated and that "a great part of the population should be swept from the soil".
1841 Ireland census:
 Population 8 million, an increase of 50% since 1801, although only 5.5% since 1831.
Ireland in general was not industrialising; labour force in industry was 28% compared with 43% in 1821, while rural workforce increased by 50%.

Someone on WikiTree has recently started a section for bounty and assisted immigrants to Australia.
