Clondalkin/Fonthill railway station (also known as Fonthill Road on Irish Rail Information screens and Clondalkin and Fonthill on onboard train announcements) serves the suburb of Clondalkin in County Dublin.
It is served by South Western Commuter services.
The station has four through platforms, although not all are currently in service pending completion of the Kildare Route Project, a major project to upgrade the South Western Commuter line.
Under Transport 21 plans, Clondalkin/Fonthill would interchange with a station of the planned Dublin Metro's Metro West line called Fonthill.
The current station replaced the former Clondalkin railway station, located less than 1 km east of the new station on the South Western Commuter line, at Cloverhill Industrial Estate. The station opened on 4 August 1846 and was closed to passengers on 20 January 1947 and for goods traffic on 9 June 1947. It re-opened for passengers when the South Western Commuter service (originally known as Arrow) began on 16 May 1994.
The station again closed after the final train on 12 October 2008.
