I am planning the ac hoc trip to France but cannot buy any rail pass in Ireland.

So any suggestion of easy & cheap route to Rennes & Caen? I will arrive in Paris first & then want to catch train to above 2 places. Please help!!

You are under 25 so you are entitled to discounts. It's important that you mention it when you buy your tickets. You don't need to buy a card to get this discount.
They might ask you if you have a 12-25 travel card but it's not worth buying one if you are only travelling 3 or 4 times. Just say that you are under 25 and can prove it.
You'll only get discounts at off-peaks times called "periode bleue". You will find them on this link : http://calendriersncf.canalblog.com/ The time zone in white are more expensive.
From a single ticket from Paris Montparnasse to Rennes, you can get prices ranging from 30,40 € to 63.30 € depending on when you travel. It's best to book in advance. When are you travelling?

Hi Sheepie10,

Thanks for yr details but the problem is I am over 25 & have no student card, so the special offer is not applied to me. I am planning to go Rennes on 11/30.

I will check the website you adv but pls let me know if you have any suggestion bcoz I have no idea. Thanks again!!

Sorry, I don't think you can find any discount tickets for 11/30. And you will have to deal with some strikes I'm afraid.
Have a nice stay anyway.
