When we originally conceived the Eagrán ticket, we wanted it to be an “all inclusive” package: no worries about transport from Dublin, no worries about what dates to arrive, no worries about whether to go to something or not. It’s the everything-bagel of tickets.
At the same time, we knew that not everyone would be available for 4 nights, so we took care to offer everything that the Eagrán provided as “à la carte” as it were: everything that Eagrán ticket holders get in a package would be available as individual ticket upgrades.
One of the parts that Eagrán included that we didn’t make available to everyone was “transport from Dublin”. In retrospect, I think that was a mistake, and we’re going to try to rectify that today. The main reason is that 1) we had no idea how many Eagráns would sell and 2) we didn’t want to assume that there would be so many folks arriving a day early.
In the last 24 hours, we decided to book a train for those who will be in Dublin on Sunday 29th March and leaving Killarney to come back to Dublin on Thursday 2nd April. Anyone who has bought an Eagrán ticket already has a ticket for the train, both ways. If you don’t have an Eagrán ticket, and you’d like to join us on the train, you can buy a ticket for either or both journies. If the times don’t suit, you can still make your own way: check out our logistics page.
The train will cost us ~€100 per person round-trip if we fill it. But we think it’s cool, so we’re willing to subsidise the difference. That said, we don’t want this to exclude anyone, so we’re operating a pay-what-you-like pricing if you want to get on the train. If you’ve already bought a train ticket and you want on the Úll train, we’ll organise a refund, just email us firstname.lastname@example.org.

(as an added bonus, because the transport was the main limiting factor, we’re able to offer a few more Eagrán Tickets. Yay!)
