The station is staffed and only the near-side platform is wheelchair-accessible.
It consists of two platforms, one on the down passing loop. The loop is signalled only in the Enniscorthy direction. There is a water tower, still used by occasional steam trains, at the north end of the up platform. There is also a siding, formerly a loop, cut back to allow the platforms to be extended in early 2006.
Most of the line from Dublin to Wexford and Rosslare is single track with passing loops at stations. When the signal box is open the loop can be used, otherwise trains use the main platform. Prior to the installation of mini-CTC on the line in April 2008, it was not normally possible for northbound trains to use the loop, as it was only signalled in the Rosslare direction. This led to some awkward shunting arrangements when a locomotive-hauled train terminated. The timetable suggests that only one train each way has to use of the loop.
The station was opened on 16 November 1863.
