Cavan railway station in Swellan in Cavan Town was a former station on the Inny Junction to Cavan branch of the Midland Great Western Railway, Ireland.[1][2] The station now houses the offices of The Anglo-Celt Newspaper.[3][4]

The Clones and Cavan Extension Railway was an extension of the Ulster Railway from Clones in County Monaghan to Cavan opened in 1862. The station in Cavan was opened firstly by the Midland Great Western Railway with trains to Dublin Broadstone. However the Ulster Railway also sought to link Cavan with Belfast Great Victoria Street.
