London to Dublin by Train

Going from London to Dublin by train is a good option, unless time is tight. If it’s the budget that’s tight, there are some very cheap train tickets available. It can often be cheaper to go by the train/ferry combination than to travel using the coach and ferry option, though not by much. It’s certainly a lot cheaper than flying, if you’re on a budget. An advantage is that you go from city centre to city centre, rather than have to spend time and money getting to and from the airports at either end.

Trains from London to Dublin

Trains leave from London’s Euston Station for Holyhead several times a day. The train is a much more flexible option than the coach, as you can leave London in the morning and be in Dublin by early afternoon.

Note that some trains go from Euston to Holyhead direct, but some require a change of trains in Chester. Trains then connect with the ferry in Holyhead, and the ferry arrives at Dublin Port. Dublin Port is to the east of the city centre, which is a 10-minute bus or taxi ride away.
