Hazelhatch and Celbridge railway station serves the village of Hazelhatch and the neighbouring large town of Celbridge in County Kildare, Ireland. Because of its distance from Celbridge town (2.4 km / 1½ miles south of the town centre), a feeder bus is provided to transport people to and from the station.
The station opened on 4 August 1846 and closed for goods traffic on 9 June 1947.
The station won an award, sponsored by London Underground, at the 2009 National Railway Heritage Awards in London, UK, for the successful adaptation of a heritage structure to include accessibility.
The introduction of the new services follows an investment of €13.7 million in upgrading the Phoenix Park Tunnel route, funded by the National Transport Authority. A small number of minor alterations to other services to/from Heuston will also take effect from this date, and the final schedules have been approved by the National Transport Authority following public consultation. Phoenix Park Tunnel services: Seven new morning peak trains to Grand Canal Dock, and eight new evening peak trains from Grand Canal Dock began on Monday 21 November, with limited stop services in the opposite direction: These services will serve all stations between Newbridge/Hazelhatch and Parkwest; and Drumcondra, Connolly, Tara Street, Pearse and Grand Canal Dock, except those marked * which will serve limited stops – search the journey planner above for exact times. They will not serve Heuston Station – customers for Heuston should use existing trains between Newbridge/Hazelhatch and Heuston Station. Services will also ensure connections at Hazelhatch/Newbridge for customers travelling on longer distance commuter services to/from stations such as Kildare, Portlaoise and others. The new services give a new direct public transport connection between stations in south-west Dublin and north Kildare and the central business district between Connolly and Grand Canal Dock. This is the first phase of services to operate via the Phoenix Park Tunnel. Iarnród Éireann and the National Transport Authority plan to expand services in the future to include off-peak and weekend services.
