The station was opened in 1851, and received its present name in 1966. It is named after Eamonn Ceannt, a leading figure in the Easter Rising of 1916. He was executed later that year, at the age of 34.

The station is part of a small complex, which includes the adjacent bus station. For many years it has been an end-of-line terminus, but at one time there were some services beyond here. Today the station provides a service to Dublin (Heuston),and intermediate stations. Since the end of March 2010, the station has also been the terminus of the re-opened line from Limerick to Galway City. This had closed over 34 years earlier. There is a possibility this line will be re-opened further north, at a later date.
