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.

New Perspective

    "I did not have any problems with this trip. Train departed and arrived on time. One suggestion from a non-French speaking passenger, I think it will be better if the announcement on board is both in French and English. "
