The village was constructed to provide homes for the dock and railway workers of the Dundalk Newry and Greenore Railway

From 1873 to 1951 there was a ferry service between Greenore and Holyhead. The Londan and North Western Railway constructed a substantial hotel and railway station to serve passengers using the ferry. The original railway line ran from Dundalkto Greenore and the first service was 1 May 1873 when the station opened. In 1876 the railway line was extended to Newry. In the 19th century there was a ferry from Greencastle to Greenore. The railway and the station closed on 1 January 1952 and was replaced by bus services to Dundalk and Newry.
