Travel Disruption Vouchers CAN be used for web fares.

I had a travel voucher from a delayed train last year that was nearing the end of its validity and went into my local booking office to see if there were any current special offers I might be able to...

Just checked Saturday's and Monday's 19:15 services now and they too are priced at €36 despite being practically empty. Tuesday's is currently €10.

So that suggests prices are getting hiked 3 days...

Checked the 19:15 Tralee-Dublin service for today (Friday) on Thursday evening and it was showing at €36 despite the fact that there was virtually nobody booked on it at the time. So it seems that...

I'll give that a go once my Laser card expires at the end of the month and report back. Unless I hear back from IE in the meantime.

Unfortunately that doesn't seem to apply to the Tralee line as the 11:00 service from Heuston to Cork & Tralee is now €20 every day and there are no other €10 services to Tralee from Heuston. Unless...

As of last Monday, the booking system has reserved-seating on all services between Cork/Mallow and Tralee. Not much point though if commuter wagons continue to make an appearance on some services..

Will it seems my perseverance at hassling IE has paid off! The 19:15 is now back down to €10 again.

Or else this quick change of heart is a mere coincidence..

There is one change in this service from the 29th though. At the moment the 20:30 train from Cork doesn't stop in Limerick Junction. From next week it will, with a connecting train from Limerick....

I still think ye're missing the point I'm making. There isn't much demand for the 19:15 between Tralee and Mallow so there doesn't seem to be any logic to scrapping the €10 fare to Dublin on this...

I'd believe that if it were true but from my experience it's not. On a number of occasions when I've been on the 11:00 Dublin-Tralee, people have actually been left standing from Mallow to Killarney...

I have checked the website the pricing is correct Cork to Heuston €10.00, Tralee to Heuston €20.00.

So this means that there'll no longer be any €10...

The Cork and Tralee trains are the same train from Mallow so it would be illogical that the fare from Tralee should suddenly go up to €20 while still being €10 from Cork. Up to now, every such train...

19:15 Tralee-Dublin Web-Fare

The 19:15 Tralee to Dublin adult web-fare appears to have gone up to €20 (from €10) after November 29th. However, the same train from Cork (20:30) is still listed as €10. This is surely a glitch and...

It'd be nice if they retro-fitted power-points at every table while they're at it, a glaring omission when the Mk 4 sets were originally commissioned. Wishful thinking of course..
