Blackrock railway station serves Blackrock in Dún Laoghaire–Rathdown, Ireland. The station is served by Dublin Bus routes 17, 46e and 114.

Beside the station are the remains of the much liked Blackrock Baths. The first baths were constructed in the 1830s and then replaced in 1887 by a concrete structure. In 1928 the complex was upgraded and the work was completed in time to host the swimming and diving events of the Tailteann Games.

About two years ago the local Council announced plans for the partial demolition of the baths stating that “the elements of the structures and Pool/sea wall that are not considered to be dangerous will be retained”. Unfortunately the really interesting feature the two-tier diving tower was one of the elements that was removed. When I visited in August 2014 I was a bit surprised to see how little was retained.
