Raheny railway station (Irish: Ráth Eanaigh), opened at the establishment of the Dublin-Drogheda line, serves the village and core of the district of Raheny in Dublin. Parts of Raheny are also served by Harmonstown and Kilbarrack stations.

Raheny, which is a main stop on the DART suburban rail system, and an occasional stop on the Dublin-Belfast main line, was the first station north of Dublin city centre, and the station at which the opening of the main line was celebrated.

History[edit]

The station opened on 25 May 1844,[2] The old station house, closed for many years, is a listed building, but when the line was completed, was the first stop for the ceremonial train, the guests disembarking for a meal at Violet Hill (Edenmore House, now St. Joseph's Hospital).

Facilities[edit]

The station today comprises a modern ticket office, with a bypass gate when this is closed, with a lift to the platform on one side and a ramp on the other. Within the ticket office are two automatic ticket machines. The ticket office is open between 05:45-00:30 AM, Monday to Sunday.
