DescriptionEdit

The station has no toilets and has no ticket office. The ticket vending machine at the station is on each platform and a leap card system is also available.

A footbridge connects the two platforms, but both platforms have separate ramp access; a roundabout route involving the slip road off the nearby N25 allows passengers step-free access from the car park to the Cork-bound platform.

HistoryEdit

The station opened on 10 November 1859.[2]
