Travel Tips:

  • Arrive at least half an hour early. Many trains (especially those leaving from Dublin on Friday and from Galway on Sunday) are popular and seats are not guaranteed.

  • Frequent weekend travelers can avail of the Weekender Card. This enables the holder to avail of substantial discounts.

  • Much of the Galway / Dublin route is a single rail line. Consequently trains often wait at stations for oncoming trains to overtake. These delays can add as much as 30 minutes to the journey.

  • Check the Iarnrod Eireann (Irish Rail) web site for up-to-date information on timetables and disruptions to service.
