It lies on the Dublin to Longford commuter route and is served by Western Commuter services from Pearse Station to Maynooth and Docklands to M3 Parkway.

DescriptionEdit

The station is parallel to the Royal Canal near the 12th lock. It has two through platforms. It originally featured a portacabin booking office; however, a permanent station building was constructed (and the platforms lengthened) as part of the upgrade of the Western Commuter service in 2000. The ticket office is open from 06:30 AM to 13:00 PM, Monday to Friday. It is closed on Saturday and Sunday.

The station was further upgraded in 2012 with new shelters and signage.

HistoryEdit

The station opened on 2 July 1990.[1]
