Ireland’s newest train station will open this month

The newest station on the Irish Rail network will open on Sunday, September 26th.

Pelletstown will open to the communities of Ashington and Royal Canal Park in Dublin this month.


Pelletstown Station is situated between Ashtown and Broombridge stations on the Dublin to Maynooth/M3 Parkway line.

Irish Rail said: “It will serve the existing community of Ashington as well as the new community at Royal Canal Park, with a journey time of as little as 12 minutes from the city centre, served by 94 trains daily in total (weekdays)”.

“This is the first new station to open on the Iarnr√≥d √Čireann network since Oranmore opened in 2013, and will be the 145th station on the network in total.”


Irish Rail has said the station will allow residents use public transport more accessibly, which will ease the reliance on private cars.
