HistoryEdit

The original station was located on nearby Seafield Road. As it proved inconvenient for residents, it was moved to its present location on 6 May 1882 under the name Killiney & Ballybrack and replaced separate stations at Killiney and Ballybrack, the Ballybrack suffix was dropped in 1921. The original Killiney station had itself replaced the earlier Obelisk Hill, Killiney station on 1 January 1858.[1]

The station was electrified in 1983 with the arrival of DART services. The station became unmanned in 2013 and it has two automatic ticket vending machines.

Transport servicesEdit

There is no public transport to or from the station. The nearest bus stop is in Ballybrack village, located 1km from the station. This is served by Go-Ahead Ireland routes 45a / 45b from Kilmacanogue to Dun Laoghaire, via Bray.
