Southern Trail, Abbeyfeale Railway Station

Abbeyfeale, Co.Limerick, 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.

Abbeyfeale served one of the larger towns on the North Kerry line and the station featured up and down platforms, as well as large two storey stone built station building, now a private residence. The station also featured a goods yard and large shed at the Limerick end of the station, as well as a wooden built signal cabin, since demolished. Just west of the station the line crosses the Feale River.
