Farranfore railway station serves the village of Farranfore in County Kerry. It is the only railway station in Ireland that connects with an airport, in this case Kerry Airport, which is located 1.3 kilometres (0.81 mi) to the north. As of late 2010, there are no signs at the station promoting the footpath link to the airport.
