Six Nations Championship

Take the Train and Enjoy the Game

Saturday 4th February sees the beginning of the Six Nations Rugby Championship and we are eager to help the rush of fans make their trip to Lansdowne Road.  From the hustle and bustle on the train to the fever pitch atmosphere in stadium, the excitement of rugby fans throughout the country will be palatable.

This season Ireland have two tough home games against France and England in the Aviva Stadium, with three challenging away tests built into the schedule. France are the current defending Six Nation Champions after claiming the Grand Slam for first time in over ten years last year. Ireland narrowly missed out on the Championship title but won the Triple Crown after defeating the Home Nations.

With a World Cup in France on the horizon this autumn all of the participating nations will hope to build some winning momentum and win this year’s Six Nations Championship.

Public transport is the best way to travel to the game at the Aviva Stadium. We advise all customers travelling by rail to pre-book InterCity travel online in advance including holders of a Free Travel Pass.

All customers travelling by DART or Commuter rail services to Lansdowne Road Station are advised to travel early and use a Leap Card to pay.

Alcohol is also not permitted on-board Iarnród Éireann services at this time.
