time allowance

Planning on seeing Scotland in 2015 but also want to see Ireland. I have found a route to go from Glasgow by train to Stranraer and then take the ferry to Belfast which would get in around 13:45 in Belfast. But how much time will I need re: customs, travel from where ferry docks to train station and board train in Belfast to take to Dublin. There is a train that leaves Belfast at 14:10 but that gives me less than 30 min to disembark from the ferry which arrives at 13:45.

Hello Beverley,

Thanks for your question.

It is advisable that you take trains which give you more time to transit from one train to another so as to have a hassle free journey.

If you are traveling extensively within Britain and Ireland by train , I suggest that you purchase a BritRail + Ireland Pass

In order to book tickets, please visit our website

Hope this helps.
