Covid 19 Information - From 30th March 2020, in order to ensure social distancing at this time, we are operating an unallocated seating policy for the safety of all until further notice. This means we are not offering assigned seats with any tickets bought online and have removed the 'Seat Only Reservation' ticket.
Seat facing reservations are available on certain direct services on the Cork / Dublin route and all Belfast/Dublin services because of the types of train operating these routes.
When you are reserving a seat on either route
Unfortunately, on other routes and services, operated by our new fleet of Intercity Railcars we are unable to commit or present to you the direction the seat is facing as these new trains can change direction in a few locations around our network.
This minimum versions that are compatible with our website are - Safari 8, Google Chrome 50, Firefox 45, Internet Explorer 10, Microsoft Edge 0 and Opera 35.
