Ireland’s newest train station has officially opened today

The newest station on the Irish Rail network has officially opened today.

Pelletstown has opened for communities in Ashington and Royal Canal Park in Dublin to use from today.


Pelletstown Station is situated between Ashtown and Broombridge stations on the Dublin to Maynooth/M3 Parkway line, with a journey time of as little as 12 minutes to the city centre.

Minister for Transport Eamon Ryan TD and Minister for Enterprise Trade and Employment Leo Varadkar TD were present to mark the opening of the station, the 145th station on the Iarnród Éireann network.

Eamon Ryan said: “I am delighted to mark the opening of Pelletstown station, the first of many new improvements we are funding on the Maynooth and M3 Parkway line.”


Tánaiste Leo Varadkar TD said on Sunday: “It’s the second new station in Dublin West in the past ten years.’

“The next step is the electrification of the rail line which will mean more frequent services for residents and fewer emissions, under the DART West project.”
