United Kingdom Passes

I am trying to figure out if trains in Northern Ireland are covered as part of any of the rail passes? What is the difference in the different Brit rail passess?

I am planning on a trip that includes the following travel days: Day 1 Holyhead to London; Day 2 London to Edinburgh; Day 3 Edinburgh to either Manchester or Liverpool; Day 4 Manchester/Liverpool to Holyhead.

I will also be travelling in Ireland & Northern Ireland on this trip. I am trying to figure out the best options.

I am a U.S. citizen in my 30's

  • Hi Carla,

    For your upcoming trip, a couple passes would be beneficial. The first is the Eurail Ireland pass. This pass covers both Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.

    For your travel in Great Britain, the Britrail pass offers travel in England, Scotland, and Wales.

    The Eurail Ireland pass can be found online at http://www.raileurope.com/rail-ticket....

    The Britrail Pass can be found at http://www.raileurope.com/rail-ticket....
