Facilities and servicesEdit

The station has two through platforms, 1 and 2, connected via a subway. Both have separate entrances as there is a level crossing adjacent to the station on Lansdowne Road. There are automated ticket vending machines at both entrances. When there is an event on at the stadium, additional entrances are opened to allow for crowd control.

All DART services serve the station, as do several South Eastern Commuter (Dublin Connolly to Gorey) services.

HistoryEdit

The station was adjacent to its namesake Lansdowne Road Stadium before the stadium was torn down in 2007 and replaced on-site by the new Aviva Stadium, which the station now serves. It has level access to both platforms. The ticket office is open between 06:00-00:00 AM, Monday to Sunday.

The station opened on 1 July 1870.[1] It was electrified in 1983 with the arrival of DART services.
