Rail Transport

The rail network in Ireland was made by various private companies since the late 1800's.

This map shows the areas in Ireland that can be used by train.

Long distance passenger trains are managed by Iarnrod Eireann (Irish Railways).

They connect major towns and cities across Ireland, making it a popular and traffic-free type of transport.

In Dublin, two local rail networks can be used for transport.
They are the Dublin Area Rapid Transit (DART) and the Luas.
They link the city centre with the surrounding surburbs.
People who travel to work on them are called commuters.

There are services supplied by Iarnrod Eireann called intercity trains which connect major town and cities that are longer distances.
