Visit our Monorail Train and Museum. Take a trip back in time and see what the Lartigue Monorail looked like this re-creation of the historical railway that ran from Listowel to Ballybunion between 1888 and 1924. Footage in our film is over 100 years old and gives an insight into the train long ago and then shows the re-making of the Train. Spend an hour or so altogether re-living the past!

This was a great afternoon. All the staff are really friendly and it's surprising that they are all volunteers because the level of care giving to us and attention too detail was amazing. They really made a lot of effort with all the visitors and...More

Everything you could ever want to know about the utterly bizarre Listowel & Ballybunion railway, including the closest thing there'll ever be to a restored operational section of the line (unlimited rides!), and the most welcoming, charming and entertaining volunteer staff imaginable. Fascinating, fun, utterly...More

The little museum is interesting and the train ride was fun, although quite short. We enjoyed seeing how the train system worked to turn around. Children would enjoy this experience, the men who run it are quite knowledgable plus they seem to enjoy interacting with...More

If you are in north Kerry on the wild Atlantic way you must definitely stop off here. Great historical information here on a very interesting rail system. Whilst a small centre an interesting one on a rail network.
