Dublin City - Grand Canal Dock Railway Station And Surrounding Area

Grand Canal Dock railway station serves the Grand Canal Dock area in Dublin, Ireland. Like several other stations in central Dublin, it is elevated above street level, with steps leading down to Barrow Street in the South Lotts , near Google's European headquarters.

The station has three platforms. Platforms 1 and 2 are accessed by a footbridge and platform 3 has level access. Platform 1 does not have overhead electric cables and has a permanent sign reading "Do not board any trains at platform 1".
This station was opened in 2001 and was Dublin's newest until Docklands Station opened in March 2007.
Grand Canal Dock is built on the site of the former locomotive shed at Canal Street and across from the engineering works (closed 1925) of the Dublin & Kingstown Railway.
