Railway Station - Howth

Railway Station - Howth, originally uploaded by infomatique.


Howth railway station opened on 30 May 1847. Today it is a two-platform terminal station served by the Dublin Area Rapid Transit (DART).
The Hill of Howth Tramway ran between the station and Sutton railway station until 1959.
Small boats run to Ireland's Eye in the summer months.
Dublin Bus runs the 31 service to Howth Summit via Howth village and the 31B services the more remote side of the peninsula. The 31B also terminates in Howth Summit, however it does not pass Howth Village. The 31B offers spectacular views particularly on the upper floor.
Howth is also home to the National Transport Museum of Ireland which houses many public service and road transport vehicles from the years past.
