Howth DART station (Irish: Stáisiún Bhinn Éadair), is a railway station in Fingal, Ireland that serves Howth Head and the harbour town of Howth. It is a two platform terminal station.

Due to the lack of a run-round facility, on the rare occasion that a locomotive-hauled train arrives (such as on a railtour), a second locomotive must follow the train light engine from Dublin to haul the train back from Howth.

History[edit]

The Station opened on 30 May 1847,[1]

The Howth tram ran between here and Sutton railway station until 1959.
