Set sail by rail for Belfast
Looking for something fun to do with the family this August? Iarnród Éireann has partnered with Titanic Belfast to offer a discounted day return rail trip to the northern city for €50 (for two adults and up to four children) travelling from Dublin Connolly, Drogheda and Dundalk to Belfast Central or Titanic Quarter.
You’ll also get a discounted ticket at the Titanic Belfast experience – normally £50 for two adults and two children, a combined ticket is available for £50 when you present your rail ticket, including admission to The Titanic Experience, SS Nomadic and the Race to the end of the Earth exhibition.
Having recently paid a visit to the Titanic Quarter, it’s well worth the visit, particular for history buffs or those with an interest in the ill-fated vessel (including fans of the film) – learn more about the hard life as a worker in the shipyards of Belfast, ocean exploration, and how it might have felt to travel first class aboard the Olympic-class ocean liner.

Smyths Toys is currently offering 25% off their range of Thomas and Friends playsets, including the light-up Track Projector Thomas (reduced from €21.99 to €16.49) and a Fisher Price builder bucket set (was €32.99, now €24.49).
