Quieter carriages to be provided on Heuston to Cork services
06 November 2022
Iarnród Éireann is set to introduce a Quieter carriage on all Heuston to Cork services from Monday 7th November.
The Quieter carriage is being reintroduced both to improve services for customers with sensory issues, and to provide choice to all customers, following public feedback.
The Quieter carriage (carriage G) is now bookable online for the first time and the carriage is clearly marked with Quieter carriage purple branding when booking online and also on the outside of the carriage.

A spokesperson for Iarnród Éireann said: “We are delighted to bring back the option of a Quieter carriage on our Heuston to Cork services.
This Quieter carriage will not only be popular with those who have sensory challenges, but also for those who wish to relax and enjoy their journey without excessive use of mobile phones or other devices, or who may have some work to do, which requires quietness.
Having trialled quieter carriages in the past, the addition on its reintroduction of clear branding during online booking, and on the train itself, means the choice for customers will be clear, and where quieter carriages are on operation will be well signalled for all.
