Castlerea Railway Station

Contact Information

Castlerea Railway Station was built c.1860 by the Great Southern Railways as part of the Sligo-Westport line. Socially, the railway was, and still is, of the utmost importance to small towns, providing a network of travel for both people and produce. A great number of the station's original features are still visible and in use including; the Three-bay two-storey signal box, the timber station sign to signal box, Cast-iron signal posts to the platform and random coursed water tower and a cast-iron water tank to top with ladder and measure. The waiting room, footbridge and platform also form a significant architectural group and are a fine example of late-nineteenth-century railway architecture.
