Short History of the railway station

The magnificent rail transport hub located on the Amiens Street and was officially opened up to the public in 1849 and it is still a wonder to behold today.

Its construction was funded by the D & D Railway Company who commissioned two 19th Century architects namely Larnrod Eireann and William Deane Butler to oversee its construction. It was originally referred to as the Amiens Terminus and was renamed after a man who was a chief participant in the infamous 1916 rising.

It initially had its alignment facing Talbot Street and its central tower served as a signpost. Larnrod Eierann architects were again commissioned to renovate the terminus as the 20th Century came to a close incorporating a new foyer to serve the south side of the city.

There are two intercity train hubs in Dublin, Connolly Station in the city centre and Heuston Station in Dublin 8.
