Are there wheelchair accessible spaces on trains?
Yes. There are a limited number of wheelchair accessible spaces on each train, it is important therefore that you book your space in advance.
You can book this space by contacting your local station and advising them of the date(s) and service(s) you intend to travel on. They will then record this and make sure that a staff member is available to assist you on the day(s) of travel.
Alternatively, you can reserve the wheelchair space on a number of Dublin/Cork services. To do this you need to do the following;
- Input your travel criteria and click 'Go'
- Select the service(s) you wish to travel on
- Choose the number of tickets required and click 'Buy Ticket' (If you are in possession of a DSP pass then you need to select 'Reserve Seat Only'. There is a charge of €5 each way per passenger)
- Input name(s) of passengers
- Click 'Select Your Own Seat'
- Click the wheelchair icon if available and proceed with booking. (Please see graphic below with wheelchair space highlighted in yellow)
