Thirteen Bus Éireann local bus routes serve the station: 11 routes terminate, and rail replacement route 370 to/from Wellingtonbridge and Campile and route 132 to Dublin via Carnew, Baltinglass and Tallaght call. Routes 370 and 385 (to Rosslare Strand) operate Mondays to Saturdays: the other routes operate on one or two days of the week, provide links to rural hamlets and villages such as Broadway, Crossabeg, Curracloe, Fethard-on-Sea, Kilmuckridge and Tacumshane. The bus stop is at the front of the station.
Wexford Bus provides four local bus routes, all operating Monday to Saturday inclusive. They link to Castlebridge, Kilmore Quay via Bridgetown and Rosslare Strand. There is also a route serving different areas in the town. The stops are on Redmond Square.
The station opened on 17 August 1874. It was given the name O'Hanrahan on 10 April 1966 in commemoration of Michael O'Hanrahan, one of the executed leaders of the 1916 Easter Rising. The station could possibly close down possibly by 2018 with the Gorey to Rosslare section to save money.
