Ballycarry railway station serves Ballycarry and Islandmagee in County Antrim, Northern Ireland.

A single platform now with a corrugated iron shelter and sometimes a street lamp, this station is a sorry reflection of its former glory as a passing loop on the way to Larne. The stationmaster's cottage lies on the disused down platform, now privately owned and well maintained. Trains run about once an hour.

Ballycarry station was opened on 1 October 1862.[1]

Service[edit]

Mondays to Saturdays there is an hourly service towards Larne Harbour or Great Victoria Street with extra services at peak times.

On Sundays there is a service every two hours in either direction to Larne Harbour or Great Victoria Street.
