Maynooth railway station serves the town of Maynooth in north County Kildare, Ireland.

It is a key exchange station on the Dublin to Maynooth commuter services, Dublin to Mullingar/Longford long distance commuter service and Dublin to Sligo InterCity service.

The station is situated on the south side of the Royal Canal, opposite Dukes’ Harbour. Access to Maynooth is by either the footbridge to the west, which leads to the Main Street of Maynooth; west along the canal walk to residential areas of the town, or via the road bridges to the east, which lead north to the older part of Maynooth, or south to the newer areas.

The station has two staffed ticket desks and four automated ticket machines, one inside and three outside the station building. The ticket office is open from 06:00 AM to 23:15 PM, Monday to Sunday.

The footbridge crossing the tracks and connecting the two platforms was originally situated at Lansdowne Road railway station.

From Maynooth onwards to Sligo, the line is single track, the line being double track from Maynooth to Bray.

The station has two platforms; platform 1 on the north side of the station (where the station building is located) and platform 2 over the footbridge on the south side of the station. Platform 2 is used only a few times a day, when Commuter and InterCity services are in the station at the same time.
