Default Which Trains Have Wifi

Only 1 of the 8 Dublin Cork Mk4 sets have Wifi, number on pointy (Dublin) end 4008. This set cycles through operating all services. So its virtually random where it will appear, generally 4/5 services each day will have wifi. Once we know what train 4008 operates in the morning we can work out the rest of the day

All coaches within the train have wifi, no power sockets in standard class, except behind seats 5/6. First class has power sockets under each table.

The following services will never have wifi

08:00, 09:00 Dublin - Cork Mon-Thurs
11:30, 12:30 Cork - Dublin Mon-Thurs

Yes they will. Two per table, and one per seat for the airline-style seats.
