LATE NIGHT DART and Dundalk and Maynooth commuter services are back on the weekends in the run-up to Christmas.

The services will start from Friday 2 December and will also run after Dublin’s New Year’s Eve celebration.

With four weekends of pre-Christmas services, it’s the busiest programme of late-night train services yet provided.

The services will run on the following dates in December:

  • Friday 2 and Saturday 3
  • Thursday 8, Friday 9 and Saturday 10
  • Thursday 15, Friday 16 and Saturday 17
  • Thursday 22 and Friday 23

The services will operate during the following times:

  • 00.30 and 01.30 from Pearse serving all stations to Howth
  • 00.30 and 01.30 from Connolly serving all stations to Greystones
  • 00.40 and 01.40 from Pearse serving Tara St, Connolly, and all stations from Howth Junction to Dundalk
  • 00.20 and 01.50 from Pearse serving all stations to Maynooth

The services will run one hour later on Saturday 31 December (after New Year’s Eve concerts) at:

  • 1.30am and 2.30am from Pearse serving all stations to Howth
  • 1.30am and 2.30am from Connolly serving all stations to Greystones
  • 1.40am and 2.40am from Pearse serving Tara St, Connolly, and all stations from Howth Junction to Dundalk
  • 1.20am and 2.50am from Pearse serving all stations to Maynooth

Fares will be charged at normal DART and Commuter rates and weekly, monthly and annual season tickets are valid on late night services.

Late night services will also have security personnel on board to ensure customer safety.

A spokesperson for Iarnród Éireann said “We’re looking forward to running late night DART and Commuter services this Christmas and New Year.

We have expanded services further this year, and looking forward to welcoming Christmas partygoers on board for a journey home which will be safe and help save money at an expensive time of year.
