Iarnród Éireann has reminded all customers, and in particular Mayo and Galway supporters intending to travel to Sunday’s Connacht Football Championship Final in Croke Park, that advance booking for Intercity rail travel remains mandatory at present.

This is in order to manage the 75% of on-board capacity available for use under current public health measures.

Already, a number of services are sold out over the coming weekend, with more expected to sell out in advance.  Customers must have a booking to travel, as tickets will not be available for sale at stations for Intercity services.  This includes holders of existing tickets such as season tickets, and DSP free travel, who can reserve travel at no charge in advance under current measures.

Ticket bookings and reservations are available at

Trains currently SOLD OUT for this weekend include:

Friday 23rd and Saturday 24th July: 11:25hrs Heuston to Galway on both dates

Sunday 25th July: 07:50hrs Westport to Heuston; 18:30hrs Heuston to Westport; 15:05hrs Galway to Heuston

Customers are also reminded that:

  • Face coverings are mandatory on board all train services and in stations
  • Alcohol is prohibited on all services, and catering services remain suspended
  • Customers with bicycles must also pre-book bicycle spaces on board Intercity services in advance

Iarnród Éireann thanks customers for their continuing cooperation with public health and capacity control measures in place at present.
