Wellingtonbridge railway station served the town of Wellingtonbridge and nearby Maudlintown in County Wexford, Ireland. It was staffed and had an island platform; it was not wheelchair-accessible. It had the only passing loop on the mothballed Waterford-Rosslare section of the Limerick–Rosslare railway line. The station was used for loading of sugar beet trains until the last sugar factory (at Mallow) after the 2005 season.

The station opened on 1 August 1906[1] and closed on 18 September 2010.[2]

Replacement bus service[edit]

The rail service was replaced by a revised Bus Éireann route 370 from Monday 20 September 2010.[3] Once a week Bus Éireann routes 372 (New Ross-Foulkesmill-Wexford) and 373 (New Ross-Fethard-on-Sea-Wexford) also serve Wellingtonbridge.[4][5]
