Fascinating insight into a bygone era with interesting exhibits and memorabilia transporting you back in time. A great way to learn about early steam rail travel and how it opened up peoples lives. Afternoon well spent

A real gem of a find. We just noticed this by chance on our tourist map, very glad we did too! The people who run it were extremely nice and we enjoyed our chat with them. It's not that hard to find and we strongly recommend you make a point of doing so. Brightened our day.

This is a fascinating small museum on Irish railways of the past, especially those in the north west of Ireland, lots of small exhibits to look at. The two owners are very friendly. I must get my hair cut there next time!

We were taken here by a friend and we were amazed by just how many exhibits there were. Quite bizarre that to the right of me as I walked through was a young man having his hair cut! Great quirky place to visit.

It had been a long time since I went for a hair cut at Headhunters Barber Shop. So while I was waiting my turn for a hair cut I looked around the Railway museum which was very interesting and well worth a visit.

I doubt that we would have ever learned of this place had we not gone on one of the Irish Railway Preservation Society jazz trains and got talking to one of their volunteers.
