The best services are offered by Trainline, Omio and Rail Europe which operate from Dublin Ferryport, Connolly, Pearse and Heuston stations. Even though this option of travelling is available from Dublin to London, this mode of transport does take quite a lot of time, as compared to Dublin to London by flight. The journey duration from Dublin to London Kings Cross station is about whopping 8 hours and 30 mins while coming back from London to Dublin. The duration of the journey varies from station to station and the number of stops and changes.
