We took the train from Athlone to Dublin in September 2018. We were able to park at the train station for the entire day for around 5Euros. The train is clean, fast and efficient and a lot easier than driving into Dublin.

Late most of the time. Unreliable and unprepared. No security and too expensive for what it is. Simply awful. If we're being encouraged by the government to use public transport there should be more pros than cons but there isn't.

Service ran on time. The wifi is slow bus usable and there are plugs at all seats that have a table. Some of the carriages are showing wear and tear but for the most part runs on time and is comfortable
