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.
The station opened on 25 May 1844, 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).
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.
