Ballymoney railway station serves Ballymoney in County Antrim, Northern Ireland.


Ballymoney station was opened by the Ballymena, Ballymoney, Coleraine and Portrush Junction Railway on 4 December 1855.

The station was rebuilt between 1901 and 1902 to designs by Berkeley Deane Wise in a Cottage style. The cast ironwork forming the station canopy was provided by MacFarlane's Saracen Foundry of Glasgow, and the cast iron footbridge was provided by the Sun Foundry of George Smith and Company in Glasgow.

Goods traffic was ceased on 4 January 1965.[1]

The station was also the southern terminus of the narrow gauge Ballycastle Railway, which closed in 1950.
