Tourists over 66 get free train travel in Ireland

A new scheme  has been introduced allowing visitors to Ireland over the age of 66 to avail of free train travel throughout the Irish Republic.  It’s called the Golden Trekker.  Tickets can be purchased in blocks of four days depending on the length of stay.  A four day unlimited ticket would normally be worth euro 100 so it is great value.

You don’t need to book online though you can on the Failte Ireland Tourist Board website    You can apply for up to three warrants per individual within the year.  If you don’t book online, you need to visit a tourist office on arrival in the country and ask about the Golden Trekker facility.
