Check-in is 20 minutes prior to Train Departure Time

Meet our check-In representative in their yellow jacket at the customer service area at Connolly station


Check-in for 07:35 departure from Connolly Station, which was built in 1844 as the terminus of the Dublin & Drogheda Railway and is now the administrative headquarters of Iarnród Éireann, Ireland’s National Railway. We depart northwards through the Dublin suburbs, which soon gives way to farmland. Soon we pass the exclusive coastal village of Malahide before we cross the wide Broadmeadow Estuary, followed by Rogerstown Estuary. Fine views of the sea appear as we pass through the coastal town of Skerries, followed by the fishing village of Balbriggan. A few kilometres further on we pass Gormanston, an Irish Air Corps military airfield –on the landward side. Red flags on the seaward side indicate military exercises are in progress. We travel through Drogheda. Immediately north of Drogheda we cross the historic river Boyne by a magnificent viaduct, with great views of the town. It was here that Oliver Cromwell put the entire population to the sword in 1649. At little further upstream is the site of the Battle of the Boyne, where [Protestant] King William of Orange defeated dethroned [Catholic] King James in 1690 –an event which is still celebrated annually by ‘Orangemen’ or ‘Northern Protestants’ on the ‘Twelfth’ of July. We now begin to climb into the foothills of the Camlough Mountains and border country.


Arrive into Belfast, where there is a short transfer by coach from the Hilton Hotel (beside the train station) to Belfast city centre, where you will join the Belfast Hop-On Hop-Off tour. The tour not only explores the city centre, but also the Titanic Quarter, Fall’s and Shankill Roads and the Peace Wall. The Railtours representative will show you to the Belfast City Tour bus.


There is plenty of free time for shopping before returning to Dublin.

Guests can choose a number of return times to Dublin from Belfast.
