Can anyone advise why Irish Rail is advising an online timetabled service on Sunday, Oct 31 from Tralee to Dublin as follows: Depart Tralee at 19:15 and arrive in Heuston the next day at 08:15 via a connection at Mallow. This includes an 8 hour 42 min "wait" for the connecting train at Mallow. I'm assuming IR will not be offering overnight accomodation so why is this service even being offered for booking on the online timetables?
I suspect this may confuse some people if they are booking in a hurry and just note that the last train departs Tralee at 19:15 as often you may not take as much note of the arrival time and could potentially be stranded overnight in Mallow. Do any other routes offer this ridiculous "overnight" service or is it some sort of spooky Halloween offering where you spend overnight on a darkened train???
