Sallins and Naas railway station is located in the centre of the village of Sallins, County Kildare and also serves Naas, 3 km (2 miles) away. The station is in Dublin Short Hop Zone and as a result is the busiest station on the Kildare Line.

Feeder bus[edit]

A feeder bus operates between the station and the centre of Naas (Poplar Square & Post Office). There are several journeys in each direction throughout the day. The feeder bus doesn't operate on Sundays.

History[edit]

Originally called "Sallins", it opened on 4 August 1846[1] and was the junction for the Tullow branch, which included the original Naas station. It closed in 1963, and was renamed Sallins & Naas upon re-opening in 1994.[1]
