My 5 year old son is Thomas the Tank engine mad, so this place is great. They are really friendly here, and we have been here three times. If the weather is inclement, there's a lovely playroom indoors. The gift shop should be avoided though, as it is horrendously expensive.

Visited the model railway village with my wife. The whole experience was wonderful - even for an adult. The meticulous layout of the various model railway lines and towns that ran in Cork in the past is truly amazing. It's a great way to spend a couple of hours. I would highly recommend a visit for both adults and especially... More

Miniature village and railway carriage cafe with interesting miniature replica of local towns such as Clonakilty and Kinsale. Kids indoor play area, brilliant for kids and enjoyable for adults too.

Good facilities for small children and an enjoyable stroll around the miniature towns, road train was a highlight. Maybe a little bit on the pricey side for a family for what you get.

We had hoped to visit to enjoy the train ride (at extra cost) but sadly on a weekday in September this wasn't operating. We used an offer in conjunction with one of the west cork guide books available from the tourist office which allowed one free child entry on production of the guide. That certainly made it a bit of... More

This is a nice way to pass an afternoon in Clonakilty, The local towns and villages are here at a small scale - you do not have to be from the area to appreciate them

Spent an enjoyable visit here on a glorious autumn day. Great detail and for older visitors the panels are fantastic with lots of interesting details about the towns and buildings and the train lines of west Cork. The train ride is worth doing for kids, but surprisingly the adults really enjoyed it on the day as Clonakilty main street is... More
