Killiney railway station (Irish: Stáisiún Cill Iníon Léinín) serves Killiney in County Dublin, Ireland.

The station lies on the DART line. The entrance to the station is via Station Road. It is located about 2 minutes walk to Killiney Beach.

The station became unmanned in 2013 and it has two automatic ticket vending machines. A large pay & display car park is located across the road from the station.

History[edit]

The original station was located on nearby Seafield Road. As it proved inconvenient for residents, it was moved to its present location on 6 May 1882 under the name Killiney & Ballybrack and replaced separate stations at Killiney and Ballybrack, the Ballybrack suffix was dropped in 1921. The original Killiney station had itself replaced the earlier Obelisk Hill, Killiney station on 1 May 1858.[1]
