Default Belfast to Maynooth

I have tried and tried to find a way of booking a through ticket from Belfast to Maynooth without success?
Perhaps NI Rail do not recognise stations outside the Enterprise served stations?
Can someone through some light on this please?

Its strange all right

According to http://www.translink.co.uk/Fares/Enterprise-Fares/. You can get through fares for all intercity stations except maynooth!

Wonder why?!

Two tickets may be cheaper.

NIR tend to only record stations at the edge of fare zones. Try booking to Kilcock / Enfield and see what price it gives you.

They calculate their fares as (the price from NIR origin station as far as Newry + price from Newry to destination in bands) .

As Colm says two tickets can be cheaper, as there are discounted Belfast Dublin fares

For the record the booking office in Maynooth can issue a ticket to any station in Northern Ireland, but again it would cheaper to book the Dublin Belfast leg online
