Irish Rail has announced an all out strike for tomorrow (Wednesday).

This means that no Intercity, DART or Commuter routes will run across the entire day.

In a short statement Irish rail said: “Iarnród Éireann advises customers that due to industrial action, trains will not operate across Intercity, DART and Commuter routes on Wednesday 1st November.”

They also announced that other transport operators such as Dublin Bus will not be accepting rail tickets on dates of industrial action.

At least four more dates across November and December will see Irish rail strike.

The upcoming days planned for industrial action are:

  • Wednesday 1st November
  • Tuesday 7th November
  • Tuesday 14th November (includes Ireland v Denmark World Cup Play-off at Lansdowne Road)
  • Thursday 23rd November
  • Friday 8th December

Those who have already bought tickets for these dates who are setting a refund can do the following:

If you have booked travel on these dates, Irish Rail will cancel your booking for the dispute date journey leg and automatically refund you seven days prior to your date of travel (e.g. 25th October for 1st November, 31st October for 7th November etc).

Customers who purchase monthly and annual season tickets, including through their company as part of the Taxsaver scheme, can apply for a refund for the days impacted by the industrial action.  These will be processed at the end of the industrial action in a single process.  A dedicated refund form will be available at the conclusion of the industrial action.

Those who purchased tickets at the station should collect a refund form at the station or see refund details here and return to the address outlined.
