Booterstown railway station (Irish: Stáisiún Bhaile an Bhóthair) serves Booterstown in Dún Laoghaire–Rathdown, Ireland.

The station is located on the coast, bordering the bird sanctuary of Booterstown marsh to the west and southeast. The road linking the station to the main road runs to the southwest, with a car park beside it.

The ticket office is open between 06:00-00:00 AM, Monday to Sunday.

History[edit]

The station opened in January 1835.[1] It closed for a period from 1960,[2] but reopened with the coming of the DART in 1984.

The footbridge at the south end of the station was used in 1980 as the cover photograph image for the pop music single A Day Without Me by the band U2.[3]
