Iarnród Éireann Accessibility

Intercity and All Other Routes Accessibility Policy

Iarnród Éireann endeavours to assist all customers with disabilities to travel on our rail services. The more information we have about the assistance you require, the better we will be able to assist you.

DART, Maynooth and Northern Commuter Accessibility Policy

Following a review of accessibility on DART, Maynooth and Northern Commuter, and consultation with users and representative bodies, Iarnród Éireann has launched a brand new Improved Accessibility Policy, a new zonal system to provide better service and quicker response times for DART, Maynooth and Northern Commuter accessibility users. 

Access DART App

We are developing and testing a Passenger Assistance App prototype that will allow individuals to pre-book assistance and manage their journeys. We are exploring whether an app such as this has the potential to make a significant improvement to the way individuals with mobility and vision impairments access our services. 

Lifts and Escalators

Iarnród Éireann Irish Rail will update Station Information pages weekly with information that may affect a customers journey. This information is highlighted to the customer using a station "Travel Alert".

Website Accessibility

While we have endeavored to make Irishrail.ie accessible for all website users there may be some instances where a visually impaired user may find that their experience can be improved by leveraging browser plugins and features. Here you will find guidance on how to configure your browser or operating system for higher contrast viewing on irishrail.ie.
