More changes in the prices of public transportation. Now DART and commuter

A few days ago we published that both Dublin bus, DART,  and Commuter would be changing  their rates, and also that there would be some routes changes. Now we bring you more details about it, because these changes can affect you. Check out below:


Irish Rail announced a series of changes to its services last month. One of the most important is that DART will now travel every 10 minutes between 7 am and 8 am, which is great news for passengers.

It applies to trains running between Bray and Howth and alternating with Malahide, while services to Greystones will continue to operate every 30 minutes.

These are the main points that should be considered:

  • More frequent services outside peak hours and weekends between Maynooth / Drogheda and Connolly, including extended morning and evening hours between Maynooth and Connolly on Sundays;
  • Introduction of services from Monday to Friday outside peak hours between Hazelhatch and Grand Canal Dock, through Phoenix Park’s Tunnel;
  • An additional service from Monday to Friday on each trip between Sligo and Dublin Connolly;
  • Modifications of time in Rosslare Europort / Dublin Connolly services;
  • More regular intervals in DART services on Saturdays.

After customer comments on a series of changes that were made to the program in September, these additional modifications have also been made:

  • A number of services in the morning from Northern Commuter will also serve Portmarnock, Clongriffin and Howth Junction; and in the afternoon, the Northern Commuter service will also serve Clongriffin and Portmarnock, to balance capacity;
  • The morning service from Connolly to Malahide at DART will provide a connection to the Northern Commuter service in a northerly direction for DART customers at intermediate stations;
  • Revised schedules in Sligo / Dublin Connolly route services to improve timeliness;
  • A number of other minor alterations in the schedule to improve punctuality.
