Experience Ireland’s Ancient and Vibrant Culture with an Ireland Rail Pass
Ireland's capital, Dublin, lies on the pretty River Liffey and is the perfect place for socialising, sightseeing and sampling the local Guinness. On the western coast, Galway City is all about culture and colour, with its lively pubs and arts scene. For the best natural landscapes, you’ll want to make your way to Glendalough in County Wicklow, and the Ring of Kerry in the southwest.
Choosing an Ireland Rail Pass
There is no one Ireland rail pass – because there is no one way to travel around this stunning country! Book through International Rail and you’ll have two great options for seeing the sights.
The first is the Ireland Pass, which allows you to travel in the country for up to one month. When booking you can choose between 3, 4, 6 and 8 days of travel – and on each of your chosen days you can take as many train journeys as you want.
The second pass is the Global Pass, which allows for travel through 30 European countries, including Ireland, Great Britain, France, Spain, Germany, Italy and Scandinavia. With this pass you have the freedom to explore Europe at your own pace.
The best news is that, when you book either of these passes, you have access to exclusive discounts on ferry travel from Ireland to England, Scotland, Wales and France – meaning you can turn your Irish adventure into a European odyssey.
Booking your Ireland Rail Pass
Once you have decided on your Ireland rail pass, get booking. In both cases, you’ll be able to tailor your pass to your specific budget and dates – and don’t forget you can get some great discounts if you are under 26, a senior, or travelling with children.
