It's a sunny Bank Holiday weekend for once - so the opportunities for travelling around the best spots to eat, drink or be merry around Ireland are endless.

Unless you plan to travel by train. In that case, your options might be rather limited due to multiple line works ongoing nationwide.

Irish Rail have warned passengers to check a number of amended schedules for both Dart and national rail line services over the next few days.

Due to major engineering works between Connolly and Dun Laoghaire stations, northbound services are running from Greystones and Bray to Dun Laoghaire - and resume from Connolly to Howth and Malahide.

Southbound services, meanwhile, will operate only between Howth/Malahide to Connolly - and again, from Dun Laoghaire to Bray/Greystones.

As a result of these works, all Rosslare Europort services will operate to Bray station only, with bus transfers running from Bray to Connolly.

Drogheda, Dundalk and Maynooth services will also operate to Connolly station only. 

In addition, train services between Dublin and Cork have been impacted as a result of works to improve the rail track route.

Services between the two counties will run every hour in each direction - but with amended times. Passengers have been asked to check the times before travelling.
