Hello Ellenmaeve,

Thanks for your question.

Please note that the pet policies differ from sector to sector, hence kindly advise the cites you wish to travel in Ireland and Sweden.

Hello Ellenmaeve,

Thanks for your revert.

You would have to travel as follows:

- Stockholm to CopenhagenX2000 train

- Copenhagen to Brussels via CologneCity Night Line and Thalys train

- Brussels to LondonEurostar train

- London to Holyhead – ATOC train

- Holyhead to Dublin – Ferry. You would have to book locally.

- Dublin to Belfast ATOC train

"Generally, dogs are permitted on trains. Sometimes they may need to be placed in a pet carrier, or they may have to wear a muzzle or a leash. Dogs normally travel at half the fare of a 2nd class ticket; this charge is payable directly to the conductor.

Pets are not allowed on trains in Great Britain, Ireland, and Norway.

Currently the only animals that will be permitted to travel on the Eurostar are guide dogs for the visually impaired."

In order to book tickets, please visit our website

You would need to feed in the Departure city and the Arrival city along with the travel date and preferred time & the number of passengers (Senior, adults, youth and children), and then click on “search tickets”. Once you do so, you would find the schedules along with the fares. You need to select the fare which is preferable to you and then Add it to Cart. Once added, you need to mention the names of the passengers to make the payment on the next page.

Hope this helps.
