Thanks I am off there next month. But I got a FIP coupon for CIE so I will go via Dublin. I am going to Limerick.+ 1. The station won several awards before it moved. It moved in April 2008.
Rosslare-Waterford should never have been closed - but at least the track is being maintained (thankfully there's a contract to ensure it is) and the line has been used for empty stock movements and ballast train testing etc...
Nobody knows what the next few years will bring but fuel prices, population changes, changing EU rules etc...can all make a difference. As someone once said we can be guaranteed of change!
Are you going from Rosslare to Waterford? If so, the bus that has replaced the train is quite good value (very similar to the good value train fares).
But the cheap fares only apply on the route 370 bus (not on the route 40 bus). The 370 leaves Rosslare port (just outside terminal) at 6.40am Mon-Sat so nicely timed for the inbound ferry from Fishguard:
Rail replacement bus timetable:
Adult single and day return ticket are same price, 11.
Open return (valid 1 month) is 16.50
Perhaps via the ATW website:Thinking of travelling from England: Swindon - Rosslare - Dublin - Belfast. I know I can buy a ticket at Connelly via Rosslare. How do I buy the ticket from England? Does anyone know if I can phone Stena and collect a ticket from Swindon ticket machine, to buy the ticket from Swindon. Swindon station can now only sell me the ticket to Rosslare and the single ticket to Belfast looks pricey! I may need to buy the ticket at short notice
