 Translink is calling on families to enjoy an ‘egg-citing’ day trip to Portrush on the Easter Monday Family Train on Monday 17th April 2017.

Operating from Belfast stations (including Great Victoria Street, City Hospital, Botanic, Central and Yorkgate) to Portrush, parents and their little chicks will have the chance to get their face painted and enjoy live entertainment en route to the North Coast. Families can ‘hop’ on-board with the special Family and Friends Ticket, priced at just £17, which covers two parents and up to four children.
Translink’s Ursula Henderson said:

“We know Easter is a special time for families to be together and our Easter Monday Family Train is the perfect excuse to spend a fun, affordable family day out. And with the warmer weather coming in, what better place to travel to than the North Coast?

“In addition to our Easter Monday Family Train, we have a number of deals available for the Easter period from Saturday 8th April – Sunday 23rd April. For families who can’t make the Family Train, our £17 Friends and Family ticket is available across bus, coach and rail services with no time restrictions.

“For families travelling in Belfast, the Metro Family Day Ticket offers unlimited travel for one day for up to two adults and four children for just £7.

“For those looking to go further by bus, our Bus Rambler Ticket is available for both adults (£9) and children (£4.50) after 9.15am. And for those who plan to travel by rail, enjoy 1/3 off adult and child day return tickets MondaySunday after 9.30am.

“We have a huge range of Easter offers so we encourage everyone to ‘hop’ on-board during the holiday period. We wish everyone a Happy Easter!”
