  • We absolutely loved this place! It was a pleasure to learn about the railways in the county from people who are clearly passionate about what they do. Their campaign to bring back the Drumboe engine is a cause which we were happy to donate to and we wish you the best of luck with your fundraising. We will definitely be back on our next visit to Donegal to see how the campaign is progressing. All the best!
  • Excellent little museum with interesting displays and a working model of the old narrow gauge. The staff are lovely. We were entertained by a wonderfully pleasant German lady who really engaged our young kids (oldest is 7), giving then quizzes etc. No cost but they ask for a €5 donation, which is money well spent.
