Carlow railway station

Carlow Railway Station was built in 1845 and was designed by Dundalk engineer John Benjamin MacNeill who also designed Heuston Station in Dublin. It is located on St Joseph's Road and Railway Road in Carlow Town. The station is on the main Dublin to Waterford line. It is a typical example of Jacobean Revival architecture. It comprises a two storey central block and two single storey wings. There are two platforms, a signal box and footbridge and the station also has offices and waiting areas. It is built of yellow brick with granite features particularly in the window dressings and drip moulds. Not far from the station on Railway Road there is St Mary's Academy and Bishop Foley School.
