Stillorgan in Dublin's southern suburbs, had a station which was opened in July 1854 with the Dublin & Wicklow Railway's mainline from Bray to Dundrum, and later extended to the Harcourt St terminus in Dublin City in 1859. Stillorgan Station is a typical D&WR structure, similar to those on the Dublin South Eastern Railway lines, and retains its original porch entrance design, window surrounds and wooden roof edging. The station had up and down platforms, but these have long since been demolished following closure of the line by CIE in December 1958. The station is located on the Brewery Rd, which once crossed the line on a road overbridge, also now gone. The majority of the Harcourt St line route has been reopened as the Luas Green tram line from Dublin's city centre, and in 2004 a new tram depot was built opposite the former station where the trams are now serviced. The section of Luas line from Stillorgan (Sandyford) to Brides Glen avoids a short stretch of the original railway route between Stillorgan and Foxrock.
The 1854 built station building at Stillorgan, as viewed from the station forecourt. The Dublin Wicklow & Wexford Railway design over the doorway is identical to that found at Dundrum further north. Stillorgan Station, on the closed 1958 Harcourt St line. The former station building is on the left and garden marks the site of the former down platform. This view is looking south towards Bray. Closer shot of the platform side of Stillorgan Station. In the foreground is the former down platform. The window surrounds and wooden roof edging design are typical of D&WR architecture. A view from what was the north end of the down platform at Stillorgan, looking towards Harcourt St in 2002. On the left is the construction work for the Sandyford Luas tram depot.
A similar view of the same location, but in early 2004 when the new Luas tram depot at Sandyford, adjacent to the former station at Stillorgan, was nearing completion. In the foreground is a sharply curved track used for turning the trams. Stillorgan Station, looking north towards Harcourt St in 2004, from the adjacent Brewery Rd which once crossed the railway via an overbridge. The Luas depot access road stands on the formation of the original railway line. The former station building is visible on the right. This is the trackbed of the Harcourt St line on the south side of the Brewery Rd, adjacent to the former Stillorgan Station. This view is looking towards Bray.
