Irish Rail note, "additional late-night DART and Commuter services for this year are timed to be aligned with the midnight closure of bars, restaurants and other venues in the hospitality sector, under current COVID-19 measures".

"Fares are unchanged from regular services, meaning customers can use Leapcard and buy cash fares at normal rates.  Furthermore, weekly, monthly and annual season tickets are valid on late night services, so season ticket holders will be able to use the services at no extra charge."

The railway firm adds security personnel "will be on board to ensure customer safety."
