The station at Dunsandle was the only intermediate station on the line to Loughrea. The site is now privately owned and has a locomotive and rolling stock preserved on site as static exhibits. North of the station, the former level crossing remains in evidence. The station
itself had a single platform on the Up side, on which was the station building (now a private residence) and a goods store and loading bank on the Down side. There was a trailing siding to a ballast pit on the same side at the Attymon Junction end of the station.
South of the station, the M6 motorway has severed the alignment, most of which beyond this has been used as the route of the Loughrea Access road.
