Travelling to Vicarstown
Getting Here by Train:
Train Services in Ireland are operated by Iarnrod Eireann. Heuston Station is Dublin's main train station. There are a number of services operating daily between Dublin and Athy. There are also a number of services operating from Rosslare Ferry port and Shannon Airport. These services will not connect you directly to Athy however and entail a longer than necessary journey. It is recommended that you choose car connections if you intend entering Ireland through either Rosslare or Shannon. We can arrange a Taxi service from Athy (where there is also a railway station) to Vicarstown.
