Accessibility

Mainline and suburban trains require a ramp to permit boarding from the platform to the carriages. A special portable ramp is used for this purpose. These are currently available at all terminal points and major junctions and are being made available at other smaller stations.

With regard to on-train facilities, a dedicated space is provided in the dining car of each train specifically designated for the mobility impaired. The dining car was chosen because there is a dining car on all InterCity trains, there is always a staff presence, refreshments are available and a telephone is also provided nearby. All dining cars in the fleet have been modified to provide wheelchair access and accommodation. All new rolling stock used on intercity trains have wheelchair accessible toilets.

In the event of numerous wheelchair users travelling together, Iarnród Éireann require advance notice to facilitate the removal of seats and tables from a coach so that the necessary accommodation can be provided. A small number of services are operated using carriages which are not accessible to wheelchair users so advance notice or requesting special access by contacting the relevant station or Iarnród Éireanns Mobility Impaired Liaison Office at least 24 hours before your journey will enable arrangements to be made.

Guide dogs and hearing dogs for the hearing impaired may be taken into buffets and restaurants on all trains and in stations. Pets are allowed on Intercity trains, provided they are properly restrained and supervised.
