Never Miss A Train



Next Train Ireland is a strikingly simple app that will quickly show you train times for any station in Ireland.

Incorporating lovely graphics and a “modern UI that follows the Material Design guidelines” the app’s features include journey planner and realtime station ‘lookup’.

App maker Stephen McBride writes:

Next Train Ireland (formerly called Next DART under the old Android Market store) is one of the earliest Irish-made Android apps, having been released in late 2009 before Android phones were even offered by phone operators in Ireland.

It has gone through a number of iterations since then but has been a bit neglected in the last two years. I finally got around to working on an update a few months ago and, having looked at the mess that was the codebase, decided to re-write it completely from scratch.

Compared to the official Irish Rail app this new app is much cleaner, more intuitive and gets you the information you need in fewer steps.

Feedback from new and existing users is most welcome.

    Can definitely vouch for this and his other public transport apps. The previous version wasn’t too shabby, in fairness.

    Fantastic app, used to use it all the time when I used to take the DART frequently. You can save favourite stations and relevant direction of travel from favourite stations to avoid having to scroll through the alphabetised list of stations.

    Is he also behind the unofficial “Next Bus Dublin” app? I find it much better that the official Dublin Bus app

      Agreed. It’s very good. And if there is an alternative to that poxy Dublin Bus app I would gladly have it. That Dublin Bus app is utter rubbish, completely unreliable.
