Fairwater railway station is a railway station serving the Fairwater area of Cardiff, Wales. The station was built when the City Line 3 miles (5 km) west of Cardiff Central opened to passenger services in 1987. The line on which it is situated on was opened by the Taff Vale Railway in 1859 to serve the docks at Penarth.

Passenger services are currently operated by Arriva Trains Wales.
