Translink has launched a bargain £10 Dublin return fare for older people on its flagship Enterprise rail service.

Holder of 60+ SmartPass cards can currently avail of free bus and train travel across Northern Ireland - but the pass does not include travel to the Irish Republic.

Claire Vaux, Brand Manager with Translink, said the new offer will encourage people to enjoy a Dublin day out without having to worry about car travel and parking stress.

"We don't want cost to be a barrier for passengers 60+ when it comes to travelling to Dublin, so our new £10 Dublin return fare is an example of how we make every effort to make sure all passengers can avail of public transport," Claire said.

"With the holidays coming up, there's no better time to enjoy a fun day out in Dublin, and we are confident this new fare will make it easier for people to make travel plans.

"We encourage all 60+ SmartPass holders to plan a Dublin day this Christmas season and leave the car at home."
