Kiltartan, Co.Galway, is a town land which the 1869 built Waterford Limerick & Western Railway's line between Limerick and Athenry runs through. There was never a station at Kiltartan, just a road overbridge where the main N18 road crosses the railway, which was replaced by an automated level crossing in 1967, one of the first few in the country. The Limerick to Athenry line lost its passenger service in 1976, but remained open for freight until the late 1990s. Passenger services between Limerick and Galway were restored in March 2010, and level crossing at Kiltartan was upgraded to a full barrier type.
