The station in the grand Scottish Baronial style, built in 1863, was the creation of Lord Dufferin, through whose land the line was laid. His family had their own private entrance and waiting room. The architect was Benjamin Ferrey.
Mondays to Saturdays there is a half-hourly westbound service to Titanic Quarter, Belfast Central, Botanic, Belfast Great Victoria Street, Lisburn, Portadown or Newry in one direction, and a half-hourly eastbound service to Bangor West and Bangor in the other. Extra services operate at peak times, and the service reduces to hourly operation in the evenings. Certain peak-time express trains will pass through Helen's Bay station without stopping.
On Sundays there is an hourly service in each direction.
