Maynooth railway station serves the town of Maynooth in north County Kildare, Ireland.

It is a key exchange station on the Dublin to Maynooth commuter services, Dublin to Mullingar/Longford long distance commuter service and Dublin to Sligo intercity service.[1]

Description[edit]

Maynooth railway station, 1962

It is situated on the south side of the Royal Canal, opposite Dukes' Harbour. Access to Maynooth is by either the footbridge to the west, which leads to the Main Street of Maynooth; west along the canal walk to residential areas of the town, or via the road bridges to the east, which lead north to the older part of Maynooth, or south to the newer areas.

The station has two staffed ticket desks and four automated ticket machines, one inside and three outside the station building.

The footbridge crossing the tracks and connecting the two platforms was originally situated at Lansdowne Road railway station.[2]

From Maynooth onwards to Sligo, the line is single track, the line being double track from Maynooth to Bray.
