Rosslare Europort railway station (Stáisiún Chalafort Ros Láir) is a railway station serving Rosslare Europort in County Wexford, Ireland. There is only one platform. The station is owned and operated by Iarnród Éireann and is served primarily by the mainline from Dublin Connolly station, although there is also a single daily service each way to and from Limerick via Waterford. Trains are timetabled to meet the ferry services to and from Fishguard. There is a turntable located here, used by occasional preserved steam locomotives.
On Monday 14th April 2008 the old Rosslare Europort station closed, the last service train to depart being the 7:40 service to Dublin Connolly, worked by a six-piece 2800 class railcar set. The new station is located near the turntable, which has been retained, there is also a runround loop provided at the new station.
Passengers off the ferry now face a ten-minute walk in the open air along the access roads to the port, braving the incoming cars and lorries without the shelter of a pavement, finally having to cross the main roundabout at the port entrance to reach the station entrance.
The station opened on 30 August 1906.
