Iarnród Éireann Irish Rail fares vary by type of service – DART, Commuter or Intercity.

You can buy DART/Commuter tickets at the station or touch on and off with your TFI Leap Card. TFI Leap fares are 21-32% cheaper than cash single fares, and you can save even more with Fare Capping

  • Semi Flex allows travel on the previous or next train before or after the train booked, and allows cancellations for a fee.
  • Fully Flex allows travel on any train on the day of booking and free cancellation.
