How can we help?

Can I reserve a seat facing the direction the train is travelling?

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

  • Select "Manual Seat Selection
  • Where direction of travel is available this will be shown as "Direction of Travel" on top of the coach on display for seat selection
  • Where a train is operating that we cannot guarantee direction of travel, we will not show any indication

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.
