Craughwell, Co.Galway, is located on the 1860s Waterford Limerick & Western Railway's built Limerick to Athenry line. Craughwell Station had a single platform, single storey stone built station building and small goods shed. The station closed to passengers when Limerick to Claremorris passenger trains ceased in 1976, but remained open for excursion traffic until the mid 1980s, although line remained in use for regular freight trains until the late 1990s. Passenger services between Limerick and Galway via Athenry were restored in March 2010, and a new single platform station and car park was opened adjacent to the original site.
