dogs on the train

Post by Guest on Sat Apr 23, 2011 5:23 pm

Guide dogs and Assistance dogs are permitted to travel on all Iarnród Éireann Intercity, Commuter and DART Services without restriction.

Small dogs can be carried free of charge in the passenger compartment of services as outlined above provided they travel on the owners lap. The dog must be kept on a lead at all times unless contained in a basket or in an appropriate container. Dogs and/or dogs in containers found to be occupying a seat will be liable to a penalty charge.

Animals are not allowed in restaurant cars with the exception of Guide dogs or Assistance dogs.

If a customer objects to the presence of a dog in their carriage, the owner must be instructed to move it to another part of the train.

Iarnród Éireann reserve the right to refuse to carry any animal which, in the opinion of station staff, is causing or is likely to cause inconvenience to passengers due to its size or behaviour. On train staff are also authorised to have such animals removed from the train.

Accompanied dogs, other than those described above, can only be conveyed on Intercity services in a Guards Van (non-passenger compartment) if available (e.g. Dublin/Cork and Dublin/Belfast services only). Charges will apply. These dogs must be secured with a collar and chain and efficiently muzzled. The construction of the muzzle must render it impossible for the dog to bite any person or animal, but it should not prevent the dog from breathing freely or lapping water; or it must be contained in a wooden case, cage, basket or hamper constructed to make it impossible for the dog to bite any person or animal. The receptacle must be sufficiently large to allow the dog to stand up and lie down with ease and comfort and must be adequately ventilated.

All dogs conveyed in the Guards Van (non-passenger compartment) must be properly labelled giving the name, address and destination of the owner.

If there is no guard's van (non-passenger compartment) on a service, dogs (other than Guide Dogs, Assistance dogs and small/lap dogs) may not be carried on that train

so id imagine all IPBTA pets would be well behaved enough to travel, happy days

yeah but it said if a dog is well behaved to station staff it would be boarded on the train and if it took a seat then you would be liable for a penalty which i suppose would be the price of that seat. so its like you were saying pretty much. and i wouldent mind paying for an extra seat my dog is well behaved which id say all our dogs must be surely. and if she is well behaved then there's no reason for someone to ask us to move to another carrige either

I think it'd be grand if you could just have the dog in the seat beside you, it'd be handy enough... Just make sure it goes to the toilet before the trip :L
