Virgin Train from London to Dublin...how long?

Can anyone tell me about how long it takes to get from London to Dublin on the Virgin train / ferry? Are we talking all day or like a few hour ordeal?

Between 6h 40m and 9h 30m, depending on whether direct or connecting trains, ferry connect time and whether you are connecting to one of the fast or slower ferries. A useful website: http://www.seat61.com/Ireland.htm

Also check out sailrail.co.uk - but unless you have a real need to take the train / ferry / train then it's far quicker and can be as cheap to fly

That was going to be my next question. I'd hate to lose an entire day more or less in travel time. So if it isn't a lot more expensive, flying is a good choice?

Thanks for the help!!

Flying would be a much better option. Takes less than one hour and fares are probably cheaper than train/ferry.

Keep your baggage light on Ryanair

Flying is certainly faster & can be cheaper,you will have to be careful as regards the cost for your luggage,some of the cheaper airlines can start getting a bit dear when the luggage is added in!
