travel between any UK station and Dublin (or Belfast) for a bargain price with Sailrail. Tickets include open train to and from the port and ferry travel with Irish Ferries or Stena line. for cheapest fares book at least 24 hours before (up to 12 weeks) otherwise its a fiver supplement if purchased at the station on the day. London- Dublin £38 all in, Manchester -Dublin £33. The train fare alone would cost more.... oh, and no taxes!!
