Previous station for areaEdit
The area was last served by the old Clontarf Station, almost a half a mile (a kilometre) north on the line. The remnants of that station can still be seen at the rail bridge over Howth Road, halfway between the start of that road and Killester village centre.
This original Clontarf station was opened on 25 May 1844 and finally closed on 3 September 1956.
