Ticket Options

Rail travellers please note that tickets purchased online through the Iarnród Éireann Irish Rail website are time and date specific. Additional charges may apply when boarding another train on your journey on the same day, unless a flexible ticket is chosen.

Save up to 32% on your journey when using a TFI Leap Card compared to cash fares on DART, commuter rail services in Dublin and Cork (Cork to Cobh/Midleton line), Dublin Bus, Go-Ahead Ireland and Luas services. This reusable smart card stores credit that is used each time you use public transport. The TFI Leap Card can be used within the “Short Hop Zone” which includes all stations in the Dublin area from Kilcoole to Balbriggan and commuter Stations from Dublin City Centre to Kilcock and from Dublin Heuston to Sallins and Naas. See our TFI Leap Card page for more details.

TFI Leap Card holders can benefit from fare capping and the Leap 90 Discount detailed below. Discounts are applied automatically when touching on and touching off on their journey. TFI Leap Cards can be purchased at selected ticket vending machines in “Short Hop Zone” stations, online through the TFI Leap Card website or in selected retail outlets.

Fare Capping

Did you know there is a fare cap when using your TFI Leap Card?

If you use multiple public transport services (Dublin Bus, Go-Ahead Ireland, Luas, DART and commuter rail) throughout a day or a week (Monday-Sunday), you will be glad to know that we will automatically cap the price so that you will never spend excessively on public transport services.

Once an Adult (using an adult TFI Leap Card) has spent €9.50 on Iarnród Éireann services in one day, they can travel on these services for the rest of the day for free. The same applies for the weekly cap on Iarnród Éireann Irish Rail services; once an Adult spends €37 in one week on these services, they pay nothing additional for the week. Once you have reached the daily or weekly cap, no Travel Credit will be charged on your TFI Leap Card when travelling on applicable services.

DART & Commuter Rail Caps

Adult Student Child
Daily Cap €9.50 €7.00 €3.20
Weekly Cap (Mon-Sun) €37.00 €27.00 €12.50

Leap 90 Discount

When using your card for two or more journeys within 90 minutes of each other, with operators Dublin Bus, Go-Ahead Ireland, Luas or DART/commuter rail services*, an automatic €1 discount will apply to the second and subsequent fares. People aged 18 and younger with a TFI Child Leap Card will enjoy a 75c discount on their second and subsequent fares.
