Cityscape

Get the best of both worlds, take an Intercity train across Ireland from Cork, a self-styled college influenced city through to the capital Dublin. Here you’ll find pubs on every street corner and all the character Ireland is famous for.

Landscape

Travelling through Ireland by train you’ll see the country as you’d never witness on the road, and in a flash. Between Cork and Dublin you’ll find County Kildare, hop off the train to enjoy the open grasslands, lush green pastures, trees and gently rolling hills; perfect for stretching your legs.

Take Home

Dublin and Belfast are the top choices for shopping; the Intercity trains connect the cities easily. Streets of well-stocked stores and inviting window displays will leave you spoilt for choice for what to take home. And boutiques, farmers’ markets, flea markets and craft shops are aplenty for something a little different, all situated in the city station vicinity.

Eat & Drink

Derry chefs like to make the most of the local delights; seafood from the River Foyle with a pint of Guinness to wash it down is the speciality. The city prides itself as being the hospitality champions of Ireland. There’s plenty of choice, from traditional Irish pubs to trendy innovative bars and all just an hour and 50-minute Translink train journey from Belfast.

    Good way to travel |
    "It was my first experience on the rail, schedule to meet so was very worried if I could make it on time but it all went well and the station master was very helpful. The ticket validation was a bit frustrating as it wasn't clear where the yellow machines were but people where very helpful. Very good system! "

    "After this trip a lot of mu friends are asking me how did it go. It was very convenient. Personnel on the stations and in the trains were very kind and service oriented. Our journey was done with no big delay and with good options like going to prague and innsbruck. Great value for the money. Whenever we'll go back we'll be using this choice. Thanks for the help and service. "

    "We booked at the last minute online for a trip from Paris Gare Du Lyon to Mulhouse Ville. This is the third time in 4 weeks that we have taken this trip. The coach was very comfortable, clean and spacious. The ticket conductors were extremely helpful as our French was very very basic. Looking to return and make the same journey in a weeks time. "
