Most DART stations have undergone renovation in recent years and now include wheelchair access. DART trains can be accessed directly from platforms and the trains have wide doors and a large vestibule area to accommodate wheelchairs. At some stations there is a gap between the platform and the carriage which may create difficulty for the mobility and visually impaired and assistance may be required. You should check if the station you need to use has been upgraded and has the facilities you require. Many DART stations also have 'park and ride' facilities which include parking spaces for disabled drivers.

All stations have access to at least one platform. Some have access to both platforms. Where a station has access to only one platform most services use this platform. For operational reasons, some services have to use the other platform so advance notice will enable Iarnród Éireann make any necessary arrangements to accommodate you. Visit the Iarnród Éireann website for specific access details for each station.

Most mainline stations have portable ramps and some have wheelchairs to assist people with walking difficulties to transfer to and from trains. In order to check on availability, contact the local station in advance. Most mainline and suburban and all DART stations have PA announcements for those who have a visual impairment, giving information about the next train to arrive at the platform. Tactile tiles have been put in place in some stations to assist the visually impaired.

All new lifts are being equipped with Braille Coded Buttons and feature a talking lift mechanism for the visually impaired. Real Time Passenger Information Displays are being introduced in the DART stations and a programme has been developed to introduce induction loops at booking offices for the hearing impaired.

You can contact Iarnród Éireann by email if you have a query or want more information about access for people with disabilities to its services.
