Ireland’s Got a Brand New Fleet of Trains, and Now Seniors Can Ride for FREE!
It’s official, any visitor over age 66 can travel Ireland by train for FREE starting March 16. Pat Preston has posted all the details in her “All aboard! New rail perk launched for seniors visiting Ireland” article.
Here are the highlights:
- Travelers need to fill out the application at least 48 hours in advance
- Passes are issued in four day increments (multiple passes can be issued)
- Travelers will present their Golden Trekker confirmation with a passport or national identity card at the train station
- The pass is not valid in Northern Ireland
Thanks for the info, Pat!
