Bangor railway station is a terminal railway station which serves the town of Bangor in County Down, Northern Ireland.


The station was opened by the Belfast and County Down Railway on 1 May 1865 and closed to goods traffic on 24 April 1950.[1]

The station buildings were erected in 1864-1865 to designs by the architect Charles Lanyon, however following World War 2, refurbishments made to the building by the Ulster Transport Authority damaged the original Lanyon-designed building, stripping it of much of its original brickwork. The company then rebuilt the building, before it was reconstructed again to a new design in 2000.


Mondays to Saturdays there is a half-hourly service towards Belfast Central, Belfast Great Victoria Street, Portadown or Newry. Extra services operate at peak times, and the service reduces to hourly operation in the evenings. Certain peak-time services from this station operate as expresses between Bangor West and Holywood or Belfast Central.

On Sundays there is an hourly service to Belfast and onward.
