The iron bridge which spans the Liffey River linking North Dublin, was built to commemorate the 1821 vist of King George IV & was completed in 1827. Dublin was then the second major city of the British Empire after London. When the Great Southern & Western railway terminal opened in 1846 at Heuston, it was known as Kings Bridge station.

Train services from Broadstone continued until the late 1950's when it closed to make way for a bus depot. The main building is intact today, though in a derelict condition. In 2017 Luas tram services were extended with a stop outside Broadstone Station. Historic Kings Inns building is also nearby.
