Laytown railway station (Irish: Stáisiún na hInse) serves Laytown and Bettystown in County Meath, Ireland.

It is about 20 minutes' walk from the venue of yearly Laytown races.

History[edit]

The station opened on 25 May 1844[1] and was renamed by the Great Northern Railway as Laytown & Bettystown in 1913. It was since renamed back to Laytown.
