Site Description

There is just one platform here, on the Up side at this station that reopened to passengers in 1980, having closed 16 years previously. The goods area was on the same side at the Rosslare end of the station and contained a 426 ft long siding, loading bank and store. Of these, only traces of the loading bank remain. There is a plaque at the south end of the station to commemorate a civil war gun running incident. There is an unattended level crossing at the same end of the station and a car park behind the platform.
