Glenavy railway station served Glenavy in County Antrim, Northern Ireland. The station is currently closed to passengers.

The station was built for the Dublin and Antrim Junction Railway and opened on 13 November 1871.[1] Translink withdrew passenger services from the line when it reopened the more direct Belfast CentralAntrim route via Bleach Green. Translink stated that it was unable to maintain two routes to Antrim and after operating a skeleton service on the route announced that it would be mothballed. The line could be revived under plans to operate a Belfast – Lisburn – Antrim – Belfast circular route.[citation needed]
