Dromod train station won the award for best customer service last year.

Iarnród Éireann has launched its quest for Iarnród Éireann’s Best Station. The Competition will be tough as it is customers that get to decide who wins the overall title and the regional titles. Voting is now open. Entry forms can be obtained at your local station or you can vote online at irishrail.ie

Customers will rate their station under the following criteria: Staff helpfulness, station presentation and customer information. All entrants will be entered into a draw to win one of five luxury weekend weekends courtesy of Select Hotels of Ireland, with Iarnród Éireann also providing the train travel to and from the five great destinations. There is also the chance to win free DART travel for a year by voting for the Best DART Station.

The Iarnród Éireann Best Station Awards reward excellence in customer facilities, cleanliness, innovation and customer service in the country’s 144 railway stations. An Iarnród Éireann spokesperson said: “What is so important about these awards is that it is our customers that choose the winners. We would encourage all our customers to come out and vote and have their say” The overall winner last year was Dundalk and the Best Customer Service Award went to Dromod.

Awards are presented in the following categories:

-      Best Leinster Station

-      Best Munster Station

-      Best Connacht Station

-      Best DART Station

-      Best Customer Service

-      Overall Best Station

A special awards ceremony to announce the winners will be held in the new year.
