Each year the RPSI operates a weekend international railtour. This is something a little bit special, where we invite you to join our restored locomotives on our train across Ireland. With a full bar on the train, beautiful scenery, comfortable carriages and a traditional friendly welcome, our tours are fun and relaxing and a great way to see the Emerald Isle.

The Main Weekend Event (3-Day Fare)

Includes visits to Belfast, Dublin, Killarney, Mallow, Tralee, Whitehead.

Fringe Events (Single Day Fares)

Thursday 10th May: Steam hauled positioning train from Whitehead to Dublin (one way).
