About Rail Travel in Ireland

Travel in Ireland by train is a breeze. It takes travelers to many of the country’s top towns and cities (Cork, Belfast, Galway) as well as some of the lesser-known gems (Athlone, Portrush). For visitors this is an ideal country to traverse, and with its varied and extensive offerings within a compact frame, it’s visually addictive. Within a few miles, you can travel from rugged coastline to smooth pastureland to towering mountains to gloomy peat bog. You can spend the night in ancient castles or modern spa hotels, dine on fine Irish cuisine or skimp on fish and chips.

Ireland is a separate nation from the United Kingdom, and you’ll find they do things differently here. All the public notices are written in English and Gaelic; the euro is the currency; the Irish have no problem electing a female president; and Ireland was the first country in Europe to ban smoking in public places. Don’t come here expecting a nation of farming folk sipping Guinness in the afternoons: Ireland has undergone massive economic expansion in the past few years and is now a young, wealthy nation, with hip Dublin at the center of the action.
