Rail Travel in the UK
Britain's BritRail Passes  are a terrific deal since they give you full run of the expensive British train system in England, Scotland, Wales, and others cover Northern Ireland and The Republic of Ireland. They are available in both first and second class for all ages, giving excellent discounts to youths/students, Seniors, as well as 30% + discounts for three or more persons traveling together. FREE passes for children up to the age of 15 years traveling with an adult passholder make BritRail Passes very Family Friendly.   

Whether you are taking one long trip from London to Scotland or a couple of shorter trips, check out the variety of BritRail passes. Compare Point to Point Ticket Prices to Passes. The total cost of "pay as you go" tickets  will likely pay for a pass plus give you some "bonuses" on other travel products (ie Eurostar Chunnel Tickets).   And keep in mind the UK is not covered on Eurailpasses. These features make UK travel affordable and  BritRail Passes a big  seller!

Ireland Rail Map

Ireland's train system fans out from Dublin but dosn't go into much of the countryside on west coast. The bus system is better for these areas, and much cheaper (e.g. $20 Dublin-Cork).  Check Bus Schedules and Prices.
