October Bank holiday works affecting rail services to Dublin

Front Page

McBride Station, Drogheda.

Iarnród Éireann advises passengers that a revised timetable will be in place this October weekend on all routes and they should check times before travel for alterations at www.irishrail.ie or the Iarnród Éireann app.

Customers should note in particular that major works are taking place which will result in a number of line closures and alternative arrangements across the weekend.

Connolly to Howth/Drogheda:  overhead line replacement, points replacement and bridge works, Saturday 23rd to Monday 25th October

Due to a series of works in North Dublin, the following service alterations are in place:

  • DART services are suspended between Connolly and Howth / Malahide. Dublin Bus and Go Ahead are accepting rail tickets on scheduled bus services.
  • Northern Commuter services are suspended between Connolly and Drogheda. Dublin Bus services in north county Dublin will accept rail tickets.  A limited bus replacement service will also operate between Drogheda and Dublin, serving Drogheda, Balbriggan, Donabate and Connolly.
  • Belfast Enterprise services will operate with bus transfers between Drogheda and Dublin Connolly.

Passengers travelling on other routes, especially Cork and Limerick, should consult www.irishrail.ie or the Iarnród Éireann app.  Iarnród Éireann apologises to customers for the inconvenience caused by these essential works.
