The station once had a large station house but now has only a portable building. This houses the ticket office and toilet. The station has a car park. A plaque in the station grounds commemorates the 150th anniversary of the station, which took place in 2010. There is also a "Railway Garden" beside the station. The signal box and railway bridge are both listed as a protected structures by Tipperary County Council (RPS Refs S708 and S709).
A January 2012 national newspaper article suggested that Irish Rail was expected to seek permission from the National Transport Authority to close the line. In response, the timetable was altered during 2012, and the service was again reduced from February 2013.
