Description

Whitehead Railway Museum is delighted to announce Steam Saturdays every Saturday in July and August.

Come down to the picturesque seaside town of Whitehead to experience a short steam train ride. Hauled by a 101 year-old Guinness engine and sitting in a carriage which a certain famous wizard would feel at home in, you will be transported to a bygone era.

This is an experience like none other provided on the island of Ireland. While you are on site, why not have a tour of the Whitehead Railway Museum and a bite to eat in the cafe. Your day will certainly be one that you will not forget!

There are a total of eight carriages on the train. Select one ticket to book one carriage.

Departs from within their premises at Whitehead Excursion Station.

Train rides will be running 11am to 3.20pm, every 20 minutes.

Suitable for children of all ages!
