The station is located on the coast, bordering the bird sanctuary of Booterstown marsh to the west and southeast. The road linking the station to the main road runs to the southwest, with a car park beside it.

History[edit]

The station opened in January 1835.[1] It closed for a period from the middle of the 1960s,[2] but reopened with the coming of the DART in 1984.
