THE SALTHILL AND MONKSTOWN DART STATION - DUN LAOGHAIRE
Salthill and Monkstown train station serves the areas of Salthill (on the coast) and Monkstown in Dún Laoghaire.
The original Salthill station opened in May 1837. It was developed by the Dublin and Kingstown Railway. It closed in 1960 and was electrified and reopened in 1984 with the arrival of DART services.
It is situated between Seapoint and Dún Laoghaire DART stations. The station has a car park, ticket office, automated ticket and vending machines. The ticket office is open between 05:45-00:15 AM, Monday to Sunday.
Over the past decade, Monkstown village which still retains one of Ireland’s oldest original shopfronts, Lane McCormack’s pharmacy, has seen the arrival of many small independent shops selling everything from flower pots to quality wines. The village even has an amateur dramatics society, whose recent performance of Factory Girls sold out every night at the local Knox Hall.
