Portarlington station is a railway station situated just outside Portarlington, County Laois, Ireland on the Dublin-Cork mainline. It is the branching-off point for services to Galway, Ballina, and Westport. The former GS&WR route to Athloe (Midland) diverges as the west end of the station via a single lead junction. The station formerly had a third track between the platforms "the centre or middle road" which was removed in 2005 when the platforms were lengthened and widened in preparation for the introduction of Mk 4 Inter City trains.

The station opened on 26 June 1847.[1]
