Irish Rail First Class Worth It?

Jump to last reply

In early May we're planning to take the train from Dublin to Killarney. Is there a difference in the seat size, comfort, leg room, etc. between First Class and Standard on this route? Or is it simply a carriage that has same size seats as standard, but fewer seats with another area (buffet?) taking up the remaining space? I can't seem to find much on trains in Ireland which address this particular route. I do realize that there is a change in Mallow and that the second leg (outbound) does not have First Class.

Timing would be late morning on a Monday outbound and return to Dublin on a Friday. We're looking mostly for space/comfort. In the UK at least, standard/second class is usually much more crowded but I don't know if that compares in Ireland.

D.
