Balbriggan railway station serves Balbriggan in County Dublin. It is the northern limit of the Dublin suburban rail network and of the short hop zone.
The station opened on 25 May 1844 and closed for goods traffic on 2 December 1974. Due to a growing population, planning permission has been submitted to increase the capacity of the station.
Opened by the Dublin and Drogheda Railway, then run by the Great Northern Railway (Ireland) until 1950. The GNR(I) was then taken over by the Irish and Northern Irish Governments and was run through the Great Northern Railway Board until 1958. Upon the dissolution of the GNRB those portions of the former GNR(I) within the Irish Republic passed to the Coras Iompair Éireann. It passed on to Iarnród Éireann in 1986.
