LOCALLY KNOWN AS DUN LAOGHAIRE STATION
I worked in Dun Laoghaire for a total of about fifteen years and was, for much of my time there, unaware that the railway station was named Mallin Station. I cannot remember exactly the event but as far as I can remember an American tourist asked me for directions to Mallin Station so I suggest that it was best to visit Dun Laoghaire station and ask at the ticket desk.
Also called Kingstown Harbour the station was renamed Kingstown in 1861, and renamed Dún Laoghaire in 1921. It was given the additional name “Mallin” on 10 April 1966, 50 years after the Easter Rising, when Córas Iompair Éireann renamed 15 major stations after Republican leaders. It is named in honour of Michael Mallin, a leader in the 1916 Easter Rising. although it is usually referred to simply as Dún Laoghaire.
