Howth Station
Dublin bound Dart in Howth (photo: Huib Zegers - 2008)

Howth is the terminus of the new northeastern branch of the DART. Howth is is situated east of Sutton.

Howth railway station opened on 30 May 1847. It is a two platform terminal station. Due to the lack of a run-round facility, on the rare occasion that a locomotive-hauled train arrives (such as on a railtour) a second locomotive must follow the train light engine from Dublin so as to haul the train back from Howth.

The Hill of Howth Tram ran between here and Sutton railway station until 1959.

DART trains to and from Bray/Greystones.

Journey times:
To Dublin Connolly: 23 minutes
