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

The main railway terminus for the Midlands Great Western Railways at Broadstone on the north side of the city.
It was designed by J. Mulvany and is of a neo-Egyptian style design - see above early 1900's image. Train services from Broadstone remained until the late 1950's when it was closed to make way for a bus depot. The main building is intact today, though in a derelict condition. In 2012 plans were announced to extend the Luas service to Broadstone Station.
