Sandycove & Glasthule Railway Station

Sandycove & Glasthule Railway Station

Sandycove and Glasthule railway station ( serves the suburban areas of Sandycove (on the coast) and Glasthule (just inland) south of Dun Laoghaire in County Dublin, Ireland. The building is on a bridge as the rail line is in a cutting. Because of the station's altitude at sea level and the subsequent moisture of the earth, the track at and surrounding this station is laid on solid concrete rather than wooden sleepers.
The station opened on 11 October 1855.

Located in Dun Laoghaire on the edge of Sandycove and Glasthule. The station is in close vicinity of a beach and the Martello Tower which is now a James Joyce museum.
