From Cork to Rome

My husband and I will be traveling from Cork to Rome the last week of July '14 and would like to know what would be the cheapest way to get there? We have been looking at either going by train (which seems like a hassle) or flying (which is not very cheap). We like the idea of sightseeing by train, but also don't know how much time of trip will be spent from A to B because we also want to enjoy Rome. Any recommendations will be greatly appreciated!

Have you priced air tickets for Dublin? There is good rail service between the two.

@itallian_chauffer: From Cork to Dublin? I checked, and total flight time is about 10hrs! not to mention $250.. There's good rail service from Cork to Dublin or from Dublin to Rome?

@kybourbon: Yes, but this thread is specifically about travel from Cork to Rome.

Yes, I was talking about rail from Cork to Dublin. Train takes about 3.5 hours, plus maybe another hour to get to the airport from Dublin Heuston Train Station.

With the countries and water between, I can't imagine any rail scenario from Ireland to Rome that doesn't involve SIGNIFICANT time.
