Q Here

I’m going to Dublin on Wednesday and wanted to buy my train tickets in plenty of time. Here’s a shot of the queue outside the ticket office in Kent Railway Station, Cork.
Tickets are expensive at 56 Euro for a return ticket to Dublin. A 160 mile journey that takes almost 3 hours!

    Don’t they have one of those automatic machines in Kent station yet?

    They do actually. 3 in fact. I took a quick look and when it said “for travel today” I joined the queue at the ticket office..

    Is it not cheaper to go with Ryanair now? I suppose when you factor in the cost of the taxi to the city centre…

    It probably would be cheaper to fly Ryanair, but it was at short notice and I never thought of it. Looking at Ryanair I see I could have flown for 9.99 up and 14.99 down.
    When you add taxes, fees and charges of €45.44 and €41.28 respectively the total cost of the airfare comes to €136.68! The train station is also closer to town and the flight times don’t match the schedule we had worked out.
    Result:
    Ryanair 0 – 1 State run monopoly train service

    if you buy a faircard, it reduces the price to forty something euro. it actually pays for itself in the saving on the first journey.
