Model Railway Clonakilty
A visit to the West Cork Model Railway Village is a treat for all the family. Ireland’s only Model Village in Clonakilty is a fully scaled handmade model of the historic West Cork Railway Line with fully working miniature trains and the towns that the railway served during the 1940s. Handcrafted model buildings and figurines tell the story of how people lived and worked in those days.
You can board the iconic Road Train for a 30 minute audio tour of the beautiful town of Clonakilty. An audio/visual display features film footage of the railway and original artefacts are on display.
Indoor and outdoor play areas are sure to keep the children entertained. While old and young will love the Remote Control Boats.
Relax and enjoy a cup of tea or coffee or tea in the Village Café and then visit the fantastic Gift Shop housed in an authentic train carriage where you can find souvenirs to suit all ages and budgets.
If you are looking for an interesting, interactive and impressive activity to do along the Wild Atlantic Way then the West Cork Model Railway Village ticks all these boxes. With their amazing models, friendly and helpful staff, beautiful views and enjoyable train ride then this is the place you should visit.
