Fares and Tickets

Students, Go see the folks before they come see you!

Surprisingly Low Student Fares

As a student living away from home for the first time life can be exciting, chaotic and expensive. 

Here are a couple of tips to help keep you on track.  Firstly don’t forget to go home to see the folks, before they come to see you, unannounced! Secondly take the train, all you need is a valid college ID to get our discounted Student Tickets, that’s easy on the pocket. Thirdly the train affords you the luxury of space on board, to do some study, get sociable with friends or even catch up on some sleep.  Travel in comfort and style, travel with Iarnród Éireann.
