I took my daughter on the train from Dunmurry to Central Station Belfast and it cost £2.30 one way. The conductor told me that due to a special offer it would only cost 20p more for a return journey. So for £2.50 return my daughter and I had a great trip and went on a tour of the new city hall in Belfast for free (free bus into Belfast City Centre from central station). We had a picnic lunch on the train as they have seats with big tables. Bargain fun day out and as it was pouring with rain our other options were a bit limited.

The deal on the train is 1/3 off all day returns after 9.30

hope this helps someone,

Angela

    This offer has actually been on the go for a couple of years now.

    By the way, you should note that the fare from the Black's Road park and ride site by bus is £2.50 return, and this includes parking, and can be used before 9:30a.m., so it's actually better value.

    No matter what offers NIR put on, they are still a complete rip-off.

    D.A. I agree NIR never seem to be cheap but given the OP was taking her daughter out for the day, train was obviously a better idea, no picnic option on the bus lol!
