RAILWAY LINE PARIS - DIJON, OFFICIAL VERSION
i didn't want to annoy you with the whole story, because at the moment, it's not clear at all what will be the timetable in 2 months.
Here are the facts as far as I know them:
RFF Reseau Ferre de France (the French railway Infrstructure Organisation) is executing works on the old Paris - Dijon railway line between 2023 and 2025.
The high speed line is not affected, but trains coming from Dijon reach the high speed line over the old line up to Montbard.
According to a RFF press release from last automn, it was foreseen to close the link between old and new lline for works in the second half of August.
There hasn't been published any further information since then https://www.sncf.com/fr/itineraire-r...nfo-trafic/ter
But a few weeks ago. SNCF begun to change their timetables (more than once). At the same time,the Swiss railway operator Lyria refused any booking for Paris bound trains running after April. According to them, the situation is still somewhat confused because nobody knows when the works (initially planned for August) will begin.
According to the newest SNCF timetable, high speed trains will run until May 22nd. After that date, only slow trains are sheduled. And for the period after June 15th, there doesn't exist any train timetable at all.
That means that for the moment, French people don't know how they can go by train to the Mediterranean Sea during the summer holidays.
It's cllear that this confuse situation cannot last for ever. But for the moment, it does.

RAILWAY LINE PARIS - DIJON, WHAT TO DO
Nowing about the work on the line and fearing some negative repercussions, I recommended you to fly from Naples to Lyon instead of Paris (and to fly from there to Dublin if possible).
But as you booked both flights over (the hell) of Paris Charles de Gaulle in the mean time, you can go from CDG by local transport to Gare de Lyon and from there by TGV dp 18.52 to Dijon ar 20.31
or by direct TGV (CDG dp 20.00) to Lyon ar 22.00.
For the way back, the problem is the same for both, Dijon and Lyon:
SNCF deleated all fast trains from their timetable. If nothing changes in the next three months, the only solution would be to take a evening train from either Dijon or Lyon and to sleep in Paris, may be Lyon dp 17.18 - Dijon dp 19.33 - Paris ar 22.25.
But I would wait a bit, because tons of other SNCF timetables all over France are published unitl May 22nd only.
Don't book hotels already, or at least only hotels with full refund in case of annulation.
