IRISH RAIL HAS announced the introduction of free wifi services on all of the rail company’s Intercity trains.

The service has already been in use on the Dublin-Cork route and is being extended across the new 234-carriage-strong Intercity fleet.

The expansion means that routes between Dublin and each of Sligo, Westport, Galway, Limerick, Cork/Kerry, Waterford and Rosslare are being added to the service.

The company also plans to introduce free WiFi services on its DART and Commuter fleet over the summer, and it says it is working with Northern Ireland’s Translink to introduce WiFi to the Belfast Enterprise service before this year is out.

Irish Rail’s trains are being equipped with WiFi by the Irish company FleetConnect and its Sweden-based partner Icomera AB. Rail users on Intercity trains can connect to the service free of charge by selecting ‘IrishRail-WIFI’ on their device.

A spokesperson for the company said that plug sockets are available at every seat on the Intercity fleet so that passengers can charge their devices as they travel.
