Sandymount railway station (Irish: Stáisiún Dhumhach Thrá) serves Sandymount and Ballsbridge (including RDS Simmonscourt) in Dublin, Ireland.

The station is staffed seven days a week and has two platforms, both fully accessible via ramps.[1]

There is a level crossing as the railway line crosses Sandymount Avenue.

History[edit]

The station was reopened from a long period of closure with the electrification of Dublin suburban rail services - DART - in 1984; Sandymount Halt was originally opened in January 1835.[2]
