Default New Intercity off-peak online fares

http://www.irishrail.ie/news_centre/...ew&news_id=402

10 single tickets across the network, although only on a very limited number of services per day.

Went to book some tickets now and got this (attached).

Not very useful, is it?

Anyone else ever experience this?

My mum had the site crash on her trying to make a booking yesterday. Took her upwards of half an hour.

I went back a few mins ago and the tickets booked without issue.

Fantastic value in those prices, nice promotion from IE.

Do assigned seats work on the Enterprise (I had the option of picking seats when booking) ?

Dublin Belfast they do but on return its everyone for themselves in standard class.

I did pitch a cheap solution to IE a few months back, heard nothing

Actually NIR does seem to occasionally print and put up reservation dockets on the Enterprise. I had one when I was coming back last month. Am going up again on the August bank holiday so we'll see how that goes.

Get this more often than not when trying to book on the Irishrail website. Usually it happens when I try 2 or 3 times in succession before then booking without issue. Utterly bizarre and utterly ridiculous.
