The railway station in Dol is well served by the French rail networks. There are direct, high-speed services to Paris Montparnasse in less than 3hrs, whilst Rennes can be reached in some cases in just 30mins. The station lies on the Rennes to St.Malo and the Lison to Lamballe lines and so local services also travel to intermediate destinatios.
The closest major airport for those travelling to Dol, is Rennes-Saint-Jacques Airport lying 50km away. There are direct passenger services to numerous European destinations including those in Ireland, England, Spain and Portugal as well as domestic French cities.
