Train Ireland

Train Ireland

The Irish rail network reaches all major cities, but not all places, e.g. no rail line leads to the south coast. Trains in Ireland are fast, clean, punctual, but also more expensive than buses.

They are divided into DART (something like Dublin city-suburban train), suburban and Intercity. There are no night trains.

The only international rail link is Dublin – Belfast served by Intercity trains. Every now and then in the press, you can read about the liquidation of calls and dismissals of employees at Iarnrod Eireann.

To tell the truth, I couldn’t understand the tariffs published on the rail website. I often had a different ticket price than in the connection search engine. After clicking the “information” icon you can see a very nicely presented map of the train route.

Many places cannot be reached by train, as a complement to travel by rail, it is worth familiarizing yourself with the bus timetable available at www.buseireann.ie. The carrier often offers promotional tickets, e.g. for 5 euros between Dublin and Cork during off-peak hours.

Map of railways in Ireland on Wikipedia

 
On its website, the Irish carrier has provided detailed information on the types of tickets used in Ireland. Below is a list of them.
 

I skipped tickets for students, pupils and season tickets that will not be useful to tourists. Tickets can be bought online (not all), at ticket offices or at vending machines. Trains do not require seat reservations (optional) or surcharges.

single/one-way ticket – one way trip on the day marked on the ticket

day return ticket – a return ticket, where the return journey must take place on the day indicated on the ticket.

open return ticket – a return ticket valid for a month from the day marked on the ticket.
family – important for one, two, two adults traveling with a group of up to four children up to the age of 16. To use the ticket, at least one adult and one child must travel. The ticket is also available in “day return” and “open return” versions.

Trekker Four Day – a network ticket that allows you to travel with all the carrier’s trains in Ireland for four consecutive days. It can only be purchased at the ticket office.

Explorer – a network ticket enabling travel on all trains of the carrier in Ireland on 5 selected days within 15 days. You can also buy another version of this ticket valid for 8 selected days over 15, in addition to trains that also allow you to travel by Bus Éireann buses.

 

Train Ireland – National Museum of Transport in Dublin

If you have the opportunity to explore Dublin, it is worth getting on the DART train, getting off at the Howth station and heading towards the castle gardens. One of the buildings houses the National Transport Museum.

The museum was founded in 1949 when a group of enthusiasts came up with the idea of ​​preserving Dublin trams from destruction. The collection grew quickly and the museum grew to a national rank.

This is not a railway museum, we will not find antique locomotives or wagons there. Instead, we find antique trams, antique buses and old vehicles of various types. The oldest of the exhibits were produced in 1883, the youngest in 1984. In total, the museum has 170 exhibits in its collection, whose average age is 46 years.

Only 60 vehicles were made available to visitors, the rest can only be seen on special request. The museum hall is tight, the exhibits are arranged next to each other; despite this, it is worth going to this museum to feel the atmosphere of the old days of Irish public transport. The exhibition was divided into five categories – military vehicles, passenger vehicles, rescue vehicles, public utility vehicles, and commercial vehicles. Exhibits are very neglected.

The museum is little known among tourists, but after seeing photos, list of exhibits and accounts of people visiting the museum, I can recommend it to anyone who is at least a little interested in motorization or trams. The museum is open on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays from 14:00 to 17:00. and 730 meters from the Howth DART station and 350 meters from the 31 bus stop.

DARTS

The Dublin Area Rapid Transport System (DART) is an agglomeration railway in Dublin connecting the city center with distant suburbs. The administrator of DART is Córas Iompair Éireann, a subsidiary of Iarnród Éireann.

The first Dublin Area Rapid Transport System line was officially opened in 1984. The first train left on the route from Bray to Dublin on July 23, 1984, at 8 am.

All DART lines were electrified from the beginning, connections are serviced by electric multiple units belonging to Iarnród Éireann. Interestingly, almost all vehicles in 1984 carry passengers to this day. The exceptions are only four trains that burned down in a 2001 Fairview locomotive fire.

Initially, the rolling stock had 80 electric multiple units, in 1999 the number was increased to 154. Further purchases are planned.

DART cannot complain about the occupancy, and on the days of events and events the number of passengers increases significantly, additional trains are also launched. DART trains carried the most passengers on July 4, 1966, when the American aircraft carrier JFK entered the port of Dun Laoghaire. 250,000 passengers traveled on trains that day.

The DART Dublin – Dun Laoghaire railway section was created by electrification of the first railway line in Ireland put into service in 1834.

An extension of the suburban railway network is planned. The plans mention, among others, the construction of a line connecting the Clongriffin station with Dublin international airport. Another interesting investment is the construction of the 7.5 km DART Underground Docklands – Inchicore underground railway line.

Train Ireland – Belmond Grand Hibernian Train

In some countries, luxury cruise trains that carry wealthy tourists around the country are popular. Travel by train is combined with visiting the most popular places, tasting dishes in selected restaurants and often accommodation in a luxury sleeping car compartment.

In 2016 Ireland has its own luxury train called Belmond Grand Hibernian Train. Stylish train cars were built in Belfast – as you can see in the pictures in the advertising brochures, the smallest details were taken care of. Unless it is a retouch result.

The train is composed of sleeping cars with double compartments equipped with a shower and toilet. On request, some compartments can be connected to neighboring ones, creating a family compartment. I’m writing a compartment, though it’s more like a hotel room. There are compartments with a double bed as well as with two separate beds.

In addition to sleeping cars, the train includes two restaurant cars, a panoramic car and a salon car with live music, which also hosts concerts or theater performances.

The train travels several times a year – various trips are available, the longest is the Grand Tour of Ireland lasting 7 days and 6 nights. Prices are high and not available for the average Polish bread eater.

Intercity connections

Intercity trains run by Irish railways connect the largest cities in Ireland. There is also an Intercity Dublin – Belfast train.

Intercity trains have Standard and First class cars, while Dublin – Belfast trains have First Plus class cars. A bar car and minibar are also available. This is a theory because on some routes in the browser only the Standard class is shown.

All wagons are compartmentless, most of the seats are opposite. There is a separate bicycle storage area on the trains, but prior reservation is required.

Dublin

Dublin is the capital of Ireland and its largest city. A lot of Poles live in the Irish capital, thanks to convenient air connections with Poland it is also an ideal place for a weekend getaway. The city’s big advantage is its location at the mouth of the Liffey River to the Dublin Bay. In terms of monuments and attractions, Dublin seems not very interesting for a European capital, but these are just appearances. Pub lovers will definitely be pleased. Dublin is also a great starting point for rail trips (and not only) around Ireland. Those who want to learn more about this city should visit the following places:

OLD TRINITY COLLEGE – the oldest and most prestigious Irish university, founded in 1592 by Queen Elizabeth I. The university campus is located in the city center, outside attention is drawn by the thirty-meter Campanile belfry from 1853 – considered a symbol of the university and often photographed by tourists. It is also worth seeing the assembly hall and chapel built in 1798, which serves the followers of all Christian denominations. The Old Library cannot be omitted from Book of Kells. The book is the four Gospels in Latin written with a richly decorated manuscript. There is a total ban on photographing in the library.

BANK OF IRELAND – former seat of parliament, currently the seat of one of the largest Irish banks. The building was built in 1739 in the neoclassical style. An exhibition about the history of banking was prepared in the Bank of Ireland Center rooms.

NATIONAL MUSEUM – the museum located on Kildare Street provides exhibits about the history of the island. In the nineteenth-century building designed by Thomas Deane, attention is drawn to the mosaic floor depicting the signs of the zodiac. Among the exhibitions, the most popular is the exhibition of gold items from the Bronze Age and the Treasury – the most valuable items from the Middle Ages. A separate exhibition presents the Viking times.

DUBLIN – a museum dedicated to the medieval history of Dublin. Objects from archeological excavations, various reconstructions have been prepared for visitors, and the most interesting exhibit is the mock-up of the city showing Dublin in 1500.

GUINNESS BREWERY – a multi-story exhibition about the history of Guinness beer. Guided tours. On the top floor there is a pub from which you can admire the panorama of the Irish capital. A mug of beer in the pub is included in the price of the admission ticket.

SPIRE OF DUBLIN – a symbol of modern Dublin. The 121.2 m high stainless steel spire standing on an O’Connell Street. Until 1966, Nelson’s Column stood here, a monument to the British Admiral blown up by a former Irish Republican Army (IRA) fighter.

The spire was created as part of the revitalization of the main boulevard in Dublin, which has been declining considerably since the 1990s. It was erected at the turn of December 2002 and January 2003. She received a number of awards, although in my humble opinion, the pictures look dull.

DUBLIN CASTLE – a castle erected in the years 1204-1224 on the orders of King Jan Bez Ziemia on the site of the former Viking stronghold. In 1684 digested by fire, it was rebuilt. Only the Record Tower survived the fire.

Until 1922 it was the seat of English viceroys. On internet forums, I met with the opinion that the castle does not feel the atmosphere of centuries ago, that it is too well-kept.

KILMAINHAM GAOL – the most famous Dublin prison, collecting great reviews on online forums. It operated in the years 1787-1924. Among others, the most dangerous rebels and leaders of the Easter Uprising of 1916 were imprisoned.

The tour lasts 90 minutes and is only possible with a guide. Tourists can see the targets. After the prison was closed in 1924, the abandoned buildings fell into ruin, but in the 1960s they were renovated. Today it is one of Dublin’s most popular attractions.

TEMPLE BAR – a district of pubs, pubs, and galleries was founded in the 1960s, when residents opposed the construction of a bus station in this place. Earlier, the areas belonged to the Augustinian order, in the 18th century it was a district of prostitutes, and in the 19th century mainly craftsmen settled here.

The district has maintained a specific street layout in some places. The Ha’penny Bridge, or “penny bridge,” named after alms for beggars on the bridge, leads to Temple Bar. The district has its own tourist information point.

 

Cork

The second-largest city in Ireland (but the third on the island after Dublin and Belfast) is popular with tourists and ideal for a day trip, although a bus is recommended because the train station is away from the city center. Cork is best explored on foot, although some steep streets can tire people with the poor physical condition.

A city with a rich history, in which we will find several interesting monuments, including the church of St. Anna with a characteristic salmon-shaped weather vane. For a fee, you can play the church bells “Shandon Bells” one of the specially prepared melodies.

Each of the four clocks on the tower shows a different time, which is the origin of the name “Four liars” for these clocks.

St. Patrick’s Cathedral Finbara is a church built in the nineteenth century, consecrated in 1870. It is famous for beautiful stained glass. According to sources, already in the seventh century stood a monastery and school of St. Finbar. Nothing is left of the medieval church.

Cork City Gaol – a former city prison with an exhibition about the fate of prisoners in this city. The Radio Museum is located in the same building with a substantial collection of radios.

Butter Market – in the building of the former Butter Market, there is now a theater, while in the adjacent Butter Museum you can see exhibits from the time when Cork was the main supplier of butter for merchant ships sailing on cruises to West Indies.

In addition, you must see the English Market – an indoor bazaar from 1788. The bazaar was largely digested by fire in 1980, but the object was carefully rebuilt. Inside you can buy mainly fresh seafood, fruits, vegetables, meat, and sausages.

In the middle of the bazaar, there is a nineteenth-century fountain. The trip can be ended by visiting the Cork Public Museum presenting the history of the city and the region from the earliest times to the present day and Beamisha Brewery, which is traditionally a tour combined with beer tasting.

Galway

A dynamically developing, the third largest city in Ireland, with convenient rail and bus connections. Both stations are located in the center of Galway. A city with a rich history, today it attracts tourists with picturesque streets and several monuments, including the Lynchów Castle – the former residence of one of the most famous local families.

Built at the turn of the 15th and 16th centuries, it is currently the seat of the AIB bank. Attention is drawn to the “Spanish Arch on the waterfront, the former city gate, and nearby you can see the remains of medieval defensive walls. The most famous monument of Galway is the church of St. Nicholas built in 1320, later rebuilt many times.

According to legend, it was in this church that Christopher Columbus had to pray before sailing on one of his expeditions. The statue of Christopher Columbus stands today at the Wolf Tone bridge.

A city of around 50,000 inhabitants will not stop tourists for longer, but it is a great starting point for trips not only by rail to other larger cities, but also by walking towards the nearby Lake Corrib, Connemara area or the Aran Islands.

Rail connections: Galway – Dublin, Galway – Athlone, Galway – Limerick Junction (trains connected with trains from Limerick stations towards Cork, Tralee and Waterford)

 

Sligo

The second-largest city in the province of Connacht is not very attractive in itself, but the city’s surroundings will encourage hiking or active recreation.

The first traces of settlement in this area come from prehistoric times; in the Middle Ages important trade routes crossed in Sligo. In the mid-nineteenth century, the city fell into decline due to a wave of emigration to the United States.

The train and bus stations are in the center of the town, which can be bypassed within an hour. The monuments include the Dominican Abbey from 1252, the town hall from 1878, in recent years thoroughly renovated and two cathedrals standing next to each other – the Protestant cathedral of St. John the Baptist (1730) and the Catholic cathedral of the Immaculate Conception (1874).

Rail connections: Sligo – Dublin

Limerick

Another of the cities with a rich history, currently living mainly from tourism. The city also has a polytechnic considered the best in the country. A large part of the city’s inhabitants are citizens of the former Yugoslavia and Poles.

Limerick is easily accessible by rail from other Irish cities because it lies at the intersection of the rail routes from Dublin to Cork and Waterford. 20 kilometers from the city is Shannon airport; the airport is best reached by direct buses from the city center. The train and bus stations are located in the center of Limerick.

The city is divided into three parts: English Town – at the southern end of King’s Island, Irish Town – old streets along the south coast and Newtown Perry – a modern financial and administrative district.

The most important monument is the cathedral of the Virgin Mary erected in 1179 in the place of the palace of Donal Mor O’Brian.

The cathedral tower measures over 120 meters, and inside you can see raised benches in the choir from 1500 – the only monument of this type in Ireland.

In addition, it is worth seeing the castle of King Jan without Earth built in the years 1200-1202, rebuilt in 1216. Initially, the stronghold had the shape of a pentagon. Currently, the castle houses a museum dedicated to the history of the Normans in Ireland. The castle was disfigured after adding a glass pavilion.

 

Waterford

The historic capital of Waterford County is a sort of separated city because the county’s administrative authorities are in Dungarvan.

The first traces of settlement in the area of ​​today’s Waterford come from the Iron Age, in the 9th century, the Vikings founded the settlement of Vedrarfjiordr, or “wind fjord” here. The city is known mainly from the crystal factory founded in 1783. The most important monuments:

Town Hall – designed by John Roberts belongs to the most beautiful buildings in the city. Construction began in 1783. It’s worth seeing the Large Room, but the biggest attraction is the largest and oldest crystal chandelier produced at the local crystal factory.

Reginald’s Tower – the oldest monument of the city from the 18th century. Formerly part of the defensive walls, in its history it served, among others, as a mint, armory, and prison.

Christ Church Cathedral – the cathedral erected in the place where once stood the church of the eleventh century, and then another temple of the thirteenth century. The current temple was built in the eighteenth century, and the largest attraction in the middle is the nineteenth-century organs.
