How high is "high"? Poking around on Ryanair, I can see fares of eg. 49 GBP all in for Stansted to Porto on July 13, and it's a 3-hour train ride from there to Lisbon.

The 10€ figure meshes with my memory as well as Wikivoyage. It should be a little less during daytime, perhaps a little more with a luggage or night-time surcharge.
