Amendments and Cancellations

Currently Iarnród Éireann has no facility to cancel or amend a booking online, however, you can request for your booking to be cancelled through our contact us section. Passengers wishing to travel on the same day, but on an alternative train other than the time shown on their ticket, can do so provided seats are available, by paying a surcharge if applicable. The surcharge of €10 should be paid at the booking office before boarding the train. If a booking office is not open the surcharge must be paid on board the train. All tickets are only valid for travel on the dates printed on the ticket only.

Failure to produce a valid ticket, appropriate ID or surcharge where necessary will result in a fine of €100 together with the relevant unpaid fare.

Change and Cancellation charges apply. Cancellation requests made after the dates printed on the ticket cannot be facilitated. Bookings that have not been cancelled prior to the expiry date on the ticket are not eligible for refund.

To cancel a reservation call the Iarnród Éireann Call Centre or alternatively send an email (if you are calling after office hours you can leave a voicemail by selecting option 5 on the menu given if you wish to do so) - contact details below.
