ServicesEdit

Malahide is both a terminus on the DART system and a station on Northern Commuter services.

DescriptionEdit

The station is staffed between 05:45-00:30 AM, Monday to Sunday and platform 1 (the eastern or southbound platform) is fully accessible. Platform 2 (the western or northbound platform) can be accessed by a footbridge (with lifts) from platform 1 or via steps to the public road.[1]

Bus linksEdit

Go-Ahead Ireland operated bus route 102 links the station to Dublin Airport, Sutton railway station and parts of Malahide. In October 2013 a shuttle bus linking various areas of the town to the station was introduced. Numbered route 842, it operates in the morning and evening peaks Mondays to Fridays inclusive. The service was temporarily suspended at the start of January 2014.[2][3]

HistoryEdit

It was built by George Papworth for the Dublin and Drogheda Railway and opened on 25 May 1844.[4]

Goods services were withdrawn in December 1974.[4] In 2009, Malahide became the temporary terminus of all direct services from Dublin as a consequence of the collapse of the Broadmeadow viaduct.

ViaductEdit

Just to the north of the station line crosses the Broadmeadow Viaduct which is 164m long and is the most noticeable part of the Malahide Estuary.
