Overview

Ireland is becoming a popular destination and a great way to travel through this country to experience the magical landscape is by train.

In Ireland, rail services are provided by Northern Ireland Railways and Iarnród Éireann (in Republic of Ireland). Major lines served by Intercity trains are Dublin to Cork, Dublin to Limerick, Dublin to Galway, Dublin to Tralee, Dublin to Waterford, Dublin to Westport, Dublin to Arklow and Limerick to Galway. In Northern Ireland the main routes are Belfast to Derry, Colerain to Portrush and Belfast to Larne Harbour. There is a cross border route for trains linking Belfast and Dublin.

Ireland is an island full of passion, located in the north west of continental Europe. Beyond its whopping 1,448 km of coastline, lively capitals (Belfast and Dublin), and jaw dropping landscapes, you will find the Irish who are passionate about politics, sport and poetry. Having put its tumultuous past behind but without putting aside its rich traditions, the Ireland of today is resolutely turned towards a cosmopolitan and modern society. Having an extensive rail network, it is quite easy to get around in Ireland.

Cityscape

Explore the two different worlds, the one of Cork and the one of Dublin. It’s very easy to go from one city to the other thanks to the Intercity train. Faithful to the cliché you have about it, you’ll find in Dublin pubs in every corner of the streets.

Landscape

If you are fond of majestic landscapes, board a train and cross the fantastic countryside as you couldn’t have seen it by car. There, from Dublin to Cork, open grasslands, green pastureland and rolling hills will be a feast for your eyes!

Take home

By train you can easily reach Belfast or Dublin where you may need a full day to shop. You will be spoiled for choice. Flea markets to wander around, farmer’s markets to discover the local products, boutiques to dig up the perfect gift or craft shops to buy some souvenirs, you will have everything around the city stations.

Eat & Drink

Londonderry (Derry for close friends), the second most important city of Ireland, provides excellent seafood from the River Foyle. A pint of Guinness to accompany this meal is just perfect. Derry is not even one hour far by train from Belfast, and is well-known for its hospitality. From typical Irish pubs to trendy bars, you’ll have everything.

New Perspective

Don’t leave Dublin without having visited the Aviva rugby stadium, with its 50 000 all-seated capacity.

    "The train departed on time and arrived on time. The conductor was polite and multilingual. The only issue was that someone was sitting in my allocated seat but that did not bother me as there were other seats available that had the same comfort level. "

    "Would thoroughly recommend travelling by train from Paris to London. Train was easy to access, comfortable and affordable. The weather conditions delayed departure time however that was unavoidable. First class carriage was very comfortable and the breakfast served was an unexpected delight. Will certainly repeat this experience in the future. "
