The station has three platforms. Platforms 1 and 2 are accessed by a footbridge and platform 3 has level access. Platform 1 is a terminal platform, does not have overhead electric cables and has a permanent sign reading "Do not board any trains at platform 1". This platform will be fitted with overhead cables during 2015.
As of April 2015, the station is undergoing a major refurbishment, with the installation of new destination displays, rebuilding of platform 1, the provision of a new evacuation bridge and a centre road terminating turn back facility for southbound trains.
This station was opened on 23 January 2001 and the first station clerk on duty was Mick O'Grady and the senior depot man was Nigel McArdle and this was Dublin's newest station until Docklands Station opened in March 2007.
Grand Canal Dock is built on the site of the former locomotive shed at Canal Street and across from the engineering works (closed 1925) of the Dublin & Kingstown Railway (1834).
The completion of the Irish Rail City Centre resignalling project will see an
- increase in the number of Northern and Maynooth line suburban trains stopping at Grand Canal Dock
- possibility of trains from Kildare also serving Grand Canal Dock
This will be made possible by making available all three platforms at Grand Canal Dock and the ability of the signalling system in the city centre to operate 20 trains per hour in both directions instead of 8.
The project began in March 2015 and is currently underway
