Ardfert, Co.Kerry, is located on the Great Southern & Western Railways North Kerry line which ran between Tralee and Limerick. This line lost its regular passenger service in 1963, but remained in use for goods and sugar beet traffic until 1977. The line however remained in situ, with only weed spraying trains traversing it during the 1980s. It was finally abandoned in 1988 and the track was lifted shortly after.
Ardfert has a typical single platform station common on the North Kerry, with a small goods shed at the Tralee end. At the Limerick end was a level crossing, but it has become overgrown. The station building is currently under renovation. Just outside the village on the main N27 road, an old semaphore signal can be seen on the trackbed.
