Train to Grand Canal

Improved Irish Rail Services 

There are plans to open up part of the underground rail system in Pheonix Park, to accommodate commuters from areas such as  Portloaise – Portarlington – Monasterevin – Kildare and Newbridge. These Commuters will no longer need to switch at Houston to Luas or Bus services, and can remain on a Train which will go four times straight to the heart of the City including Dublin’s Docklands. 

“The decision to reopen the tunnel was first announced last
year as part of a proposed €900m development plan for transport in Dublin.”
