Yes I like to travel by train in Ireland. It is confortable, puntual and fast. Also it has many facilities as toiletts, wi-fi, plugs, tickets online, beverages and snacks for sale. On board you would enjoy a cofee, tea, fizzi drinks, biscuits, meanwhile you are working with your laptop or chating with your friends. In my opinion, the train rail of Ireland are really nice but too expensive.
