Iarnród Éireann has reintroduced its ‘quieter carriage‘ concept on its Heuston to Cork services from today. (Monday 7th November)

The quieter carriage is reconvened to both improve services for customers with sensory issues, and to provide choice to all customers, following public feedback.

The quiet carriage (carriage G) is bookable online for the first time, and the carriage is clearly marked with quiet carriage purple branding when booking online and also on the outside of the carriage.

The quieter carriage is available on the following services:

Iarnród Éireann said: “We are delighted to bring back the option of a quieter carriage on our Heuston to Cork services. 

This quieter carriage will not only be popular with those who have sensory challenges, but also for those who wish to relax and enjoy their journey without excessive use of mobile phones or other devices, or who may have some work to do, which requires quietness. 

Having trialled quieter carriages in the past, the addition on its reintroduction of clear branding during online booking, and on the train itself, means the choice for customers will be clear, and where quieter carriages are on operation will be well signalled for all.”
