Ireland’s rail network reaches all corners of the country, and Dublin is a key hub at the heart of it all. From historic Cork to the Ring of Kerry, here are a few top destinations in Ireland to visit by train from Dublin.

Galway — 2.5 hours from Dublin
Take the westbound train from Dublin over to Ireland’s Atlantic coast, and explore the sights of County Galway, where highlights include the rocky Burren Plateau and the tranquil beaches of Galway Bay. No visit to this part of Ireland is complete without a trip to the Dingle Peninsula and Slea Head, the westernmost point of Ireland. From Dublin, travelers can visit Galway and surrounds on a day trip by rail or a multi-day rail tour.
 
Belfast — 2.5 hours from Dublin
With striking Victorian architecture, waterfront scenery, a thriving contemporary arts scene, and diverse dining options, plus plenty of lively pubs, there are many good reasons to visit Belfast. Highlights of the Northern Ireland capital include the Scottish Provident Institution—a masterpiece of Victorian construction—and the nearby Cave Hill Country Park. A multi-day rail tour of Northern Ireland may stop in Belfast and at area highlights such as Antrim Coastal Road, the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge, and the UNESCO-listed Giant’s Causeway.

Cork — 3 hours from Dublin
Home to top attractions including Blarney Castle—the medieval stronghold of southern Ireland—Cork is a popular destination for rail travelers from Dublin. Chug through Ireland's scenic countryside, soak up the atmosphere in Blarney village, and don’t forget to follow tradition and kiss the famous Blarney Stone. You can visit Cork and Blarney Castle on a day trip by rail from Dublin, or take in more of the surrounding attractions on a multi-day rail tour.

Ring of Kerry — 4 hours from Dublin
The Ring of Kerry is the name given to the scenic circular route from Killarney around the Iveragh Peninsula in southwest Ireland’s County Kerry. Highlights include the rugged coastal scenery, traditional seaside villages, and top natural attractions such as the Lakes of Killarney. From Dublin, the Ring of Kerry can be seen either on a day trip by rail and coach or on a multi-day rail tour.

Cliffs of Moher — 5 hours from Dublin
West Ireland is home to many of the country’s most impressive natural attractions, namely the awe-inspiring Cliffs of Moher in southwestern Country Clare. With beautiful views over the Aran Islands in Galway Bay, the Maumturks, and Twelve Pins mountain ranges, the Cliffs of Moher and Galway Bay make a wonderful day trip from Dublin, but travelers can also book multi-day rail tours to explore the region further.
